Since more variables are given, to avoid confusion assume a new variable to simplify it.
Let us assume this p3 = q4 = r5 = s6 is equal to kx
so that we can get every values in k
We can rewrite this logs (pqr) as $$frac{log_k$pqr$}{log_k s})
Now let us take the LCM of 3 , 4 , 5 and 6 which is equal to 60
Hence p3 = q4 = r5 = s6 = k60
Or p = k20 q = k15 r = k12 s = k10
$$frac{log_k$pqr$}{log_k s}) = $$frac{log_k k^{20}k^{15}k^{12}}{log_k k^{10}}$ $\frac{log_k$pqr$}{log_k s}) = $$frac{47}{10}$ The question is "If p3 = q4 = r5 = s6, then the value of logs$pqr) is equal to"

##### Hence, the answer is $$frac{47}{10}$ Choice C is the correct answer. ###### Prepare for CAT 2022 with 2IIM's Daily Preparation Schedule ###### Know all about CAT Exam Syllabus and what to expect in CAT ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2023 Classroom Batches Starting Now! @Gopalapuram ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Introductory offer of 5000/- Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
