## Question 6 & Question 7 & Question 8

Somehow Mario gets out of the tunnel and then finds himself face-to-face with the evil gorilla Donkey Kong. Looking down, he saw that he was standing on a gigantic chessboard. He could see various chessmen standing along the board. Donkey Kong shouted, “Domination, total domination! Three challenges, and I want domination in them all!”

Hint : In chess, domination problems mean arranging a minimum number of a specific type of chess piece such that all places on the board are attacked by atleast one peice.

Total Domination: This is the same as domination but the spaces occupied by the attacking pieces should also be attacked by some other piece.

(a)8 (b)10 (c)12 (d)None of these

Question 7 :

How many ways can you arrange 4 queens such that they will dominate a 5*9 chessboard?

(a)4 (b)2 (c)6 (d)None of these

Question 8 :

## Re: Question 6 & Question 7 & Question 8

May i know how is 7:-none. Is it because it is now possible to dominate the board with 4 queens or there others cases are formed

## Re: Question 6 & Question 7 & Question 8

7 is none of these because 4 queens can never dominate a 5*9 chess board.

## Re: Question 6 & Question 7 & Question 8

## question 8

the answer should surely be 12

8 knights can only dominate the chess board.

however the question asks for a total domination. 12 knights are required for that.

the placings are: d4, d5, e4, e5, a1, a8, h1, h8, c2, c7, f2, f7.
