## Question The value of log (base 0.008) √5 + log (base√3) 81 – 7 is equal to

A) 1/3
B) 2/3
C) 5/6
D) 7/6

Option (C)

## Solution

As per CAT 2017 – Quantitative Aptitude – Algebra – Logarithms, we can see that
log(base 0.008)5^(1/2) = -1/6
Log (base 3^1/2) 3^4 = 8
So, -1/6 + 8 – 7 = 5/6
Option (C)
