  2. What is the remainder when $2^{1024} + 5^{1024} +1$ is divided by $9$?

  4. In how many ways can four different numbers be arranged so that they are not arranged in increasing or decreasing order?

  5. If $x$ is very very very small $\sin x \approx x$. An operator $S_n$ is defined such that $ S_n(x)= \sin \sin \sin \cdots \sin x$ (a total of $n$ $\sin$ operators are included here). For sufficiently large $n$, $S_n(x) \approx S_{n-1}(x)$. In that case, express $\cos (S_n(x))$ as the nearest rational value.

  8. Assume, $\Phi : A \to A, A=\{0,1,2,\cdots\}$ is a function, which is defined as,
    \[\Phi(x) = \begin{cases}
    0 \quad \text{if } x \text{ is a prime}\\
    \Phi(x - 1) \quad \text{if } x \text{ is not a prime} \end{cases} \]
    Find \[ \sum_{x=2}^{2010} \Phi(x)\]

  11. The diagram above shows the various paths along which Mr. Ibrahim Khalilullah Nobi can travel from point Teknaf, where it is released, to point Tetulia, where it is rewarded with a food pellet. How many different paths from Teknaf to Tetulia can Nobi take if it goes directly from Teknaf to Tetulia without retracting any point along a path?
