(i) A  = space space space equals space left curly bracket space straight x space colon space straight x space element of space straight Z right parenthesis and x is a root of quadratic equation x-3x -10 = 0}

Now, x-3x -10 = 0  

rightwards double arrow   (x-5) (x+2) = 0

rightwards double arrow              x=5, -2 which are both integers.

Hence, A = {-2, 5}

(ii)       B= {x :x space element of space straight N, -5 < x-2 < 5}

Now, -5 < x-2 < 5

rightwards double arrow         -3 < x < 7

rightwards double arrow   x is a natural number between -3 and 7 (exclusive).

Hence,  B = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

(iii)                       C = {x : x is an odd prime number less than 30}

rightwards double arrow                        x  = 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29

Hence C = { 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29}
