Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from CAT Algebra - Functions: A perfect combo of combinatorics and Functions.

For nCr to be defined, we should have r greater than or equal to zero and, n greater than or equal to r.
Therefore 9 – x ≥ x + 1 or 4 ≥ x and
also x + 1 > 0 or x > –1
Therefore x takes on the values {–1,0,1,2,3,4}
Therefore domain = {–1,0,1,2,3,4} and range = {10C0,9C1,8C2,7C3,6C4,5C5}
There are 6 elements in the domain.

The question is "How many elements are present in the domain of 9–xCx+1? "

Hence the answer is "6"

Choice B is the correct answer.
