4 On which side of a cash book must the balance always fall ? 5 On which side of a cash book should an amount paid away
be entered ? 6 A transmits to B. 4001., with directions to pay J. Brown,
381. 2s. 6d., J. Smith 491. 5s. 9d., W. Eve 501., W. Robinson 991. 13s. 9d., each less 24 per cent.; and W. Walker 471. 16s. 8d., H. Biggs 531. 13s. 4d., and Charles Bunce 611. 8s., each less 5 per cent.; and to retain the balance, if any, till further instructions. Supposing that B has done all this, make out such an account as it would be necessary for him to send to A, to
show exactly what has taken place. 7 Give the entries of the same transactions, as A would enter
them in his cash book on receiving the above account. 8 State in few words what “ book-keeping by double entry” is,
and in what it is preferable to "book-keeping by single

5 Find three numbers such that the differences between each
and the sum of the other two and their product are in the
ratios 1:3:5 : 192. 6 Prove that (1) The difference of the squares of any two odd numbers is
divisible by 8. (2) Every square is the sum of as many consecutive odd
numbers as there are units in the root. * 7 How many terms are there in the expansion of (3 x — 8y) ?
Write down the third term. 8 Prove the formula for the summation of arithmetical and geometric series; and sum the following :7 + 3 1

together, noticing the case in which n=r, and certain
letters recur. Ex.: Sebastopol. 11 Prove the formulæ—

other angles and the third side. 13 Determine the exponential expressions for sin A and cos A. 14 Describe Hadley's sextant. 15 A triangular field, A B C, has two rectilinear sides, A B,
A C, and one curvilinear, B C. Explain how to survey it; and if it be found that A B = 12:53 chains rectilinear distance, BC= 8.46 chains, and perpendicular from C on A B=5•25 chains, determine the approximate area, assuming 'any curvature you please; or determine the area and draw the figure from the following notes :-

circle, a parallelogram, proportion, reciprocal proportion. 17 The angles which one straight line makes with another upon
one side of it are either two right angles, or are together
equal to two right angles. 18 Divide a straight line into two parts, so that the rectangle
contained by the whole and one of the parts shall be equal
to the square of the other part. 19 If two circles cut each other, the straight lines joining their
centres will bisect their common chord at right angles. 20 Draw a straight line from a given point, either without or
in the circumference, which shall touch a given circle. 21 Inscribe a circle in a given triangle. 22 If the sides of two triangles about each of their angles be
proportionals, the triangles shall be equiangular, and have their equal angles opposite to the homologous sides.
Write the following passages in ordinary prose, and explain any peculiarities in the construction :
This gentle and unforc'd accord of Hamlet
King. I must not hear thee ; fare thee well, kind maid,
Thy pains not us'd must by thyself be paid ;
Proffers not took reap thanks for their reward.
It is not so with him that all things knows,
But most it is presumption in us, when
Hail foreign wonder !

(1) To Europe from the Crusades.
(2) To England from the Norman Conquest. 2 What were the claims
(1) Of Edward III. to the throne of France ?
England ? 3 At what periods of English History did the principle of
elective monarchy prevail over that of hereditary suc
cession ? 4 What were the Petition of Right, Instrument of Government,
Act of Uniformity, Act of Settlement, and Act of
Navigation ? 5 Explain fully the allusions contained in the following pas
sage: “ After half a century, during which England had been of
scarcely more weight in European politics than Venice or Saxony, she at once became the most formidable power in the world; dictated terms of peace to the United Provinces; avenged the common injuries of Christendom on the pirates of Barbary ; vanquished the Spaniards by land and sea; seized one of the finest West India Islands; and acquired on the Flemish coast a fortress which consoled the national pride for the loss
of Calais." 6 What important constitutional questions were raised
(1) By the illness of George III. ?
(2) By the protracted trial of Warren Hastings? 7 State very briefly the occasions on which six of the following
battles were fought, and discuss more fully their political
