**Q 1 - Identify the like terms in the expression:**

**11x − 15y − 19x + 18y**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The following are like terms because each term consists of variables, x, and a numeric coefficient.

11x, −19x

**Step 2:**

The following are like terms because each term consists of variables, y, and a numeric coefficient.

18y, −15y

**Q 2 - Identify the coefficient of g**

^{2}term in the expression:**7f + 8g + 11g**

^{2}– 12h### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The numeric part of a term is generally called the coefficient.

**Step 2:**

The term containing g^{2} is 11g^{2}.

So, the coefficient of g^{2} in the term is 11.

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

In an algebraic expression, the term with no variables is called the constant.

**Step 2:**

In given expression, the constant is obviously 9.

**Q 4 - Identify the highest degree/order of the expression:**

**10x + 5x**

^{2}−6y + 7### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The term in the given expression with highest degree is 5x^{2}. The degree of the variable is 2.

**Step 2:**

So, the highest degree or order of the given expression is 2.

**Q 5 - Identify the term with coefficient −6 in the expression:**

**3a**

^{3}+ 9b^{2}− 6c^{3}+ 17### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

In the given expression, the term with coefficient −6 is −6c^{3}.

**Step 2:**

So, answer is −6c^{3}

**Q 6 - Identify the like terms in the expression:**

**8a + 12b + 9c + 5a + 4b**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The unlike terms consist of different variables.

**Step 2:**

The unlike terms because each term consists of different variables, a, b and c are

8a, 12b and 9c

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

In an algebraic expression, the term with no variables is called the constant.

**Step 2:**

In given expression, the constant is obviously 56.

**Q 8 - Identify the coefficient of second term in the expression:**

**5x**

^{2}+ 8y^{3}+ 3x + 9y −5y^{2}### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The numeric part of a term is generally called the coefficient.

**Step 2:**

The second term in the expression is 8y^{3}.

The coefficient of this term is 8.

**Q 9 - Identify the term whose coefficient is −18 in the expression:**

**44x + 3xy**

^{2}−18xy^{2}+ 9z### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The numeric part of a term is generally called the coefficient.

**Step 2:**

The term whose coefficient is −18 is −18xy^{2}.

**Q 10 - Identify the like terms in the expression:**

**7a**

^{2}+ 3b^{3}+ 5b^{3}+ 6a^{2}− 8a^{2}### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

The following are like terms because each term consists of variables, a^{2}, and a numeric coefficient.

6a^{2}, −8a^{2}, 7a^{2}

**Step 2:**

The following are like terms because each term consists of variables, b^{3}, and a numeric coefficient.

3b^{3}, 5b^{3}
