In a guitar, two strings \(A\) and \(B\) made of same material are slightly out of tune and produce beats of frequency \(6~\text{Hz}\). When tension in \(B\) is slightly decreased, the beat frequency increases to \(7~\text{Hz}\).  If the frequency of \(A\) is \(530~\text{Hz}\), the original frequency of \(B\) will be:

1. \(524~\text{Hz}\) 2. \(536~\text{Hz}\)
3. \(537~\text{Hz}\) 4. \(523~\text{Hz}\)

A source of unknown frequency gives \(4\) beats/s when sounded with a source of known frequency of \(250~\text{Hz}\). The second harmonic of the source of unknown frequency gives five beats per second when sounded with a source of frequency of \(513~\text{Hz}\). The unknown frequency will be:

1. \(246~\text{Hz}\) 2. \(240~\text{Hz}\)
3. \(260~\text{Hz}\) 4. \(254~\text{Hz}\)

Two sources of sound placed close to each other, are emitting progressive waves given by,
\(y_1=4\sin 600\pi t\) and \(y_2=5\sin 608\pi t\).
An observer located near these two sources of sound will hear:

1. \(4\) beats per second with intensity ratio \(25:16\) between waxing and waning
2. \(8\) beats per second with intensity ratio \(25:16\) between waxing and waning
3. \(8\) beats per second with intensity ratio \(81:1\) between waxing and waning
4. \(4\) beats per second with intensity ratio \(81:1\) between waxing and waning

A tuning fork of frequency \(512\) Hz makes \(4\) beats/s with the vibrating string of a piano. The beat frequency decreases to \(2\) beats/s when the tension in the piano string is slightly increased. The frequency of the piano string before increasing the tension was:
1. \(510\) Hz
2. \(514\) Hz
3. \(516\) Hz
4. \(508\) Hz
