If $a,b,c$ and $d$ satisfy the equations

• $a+7b+3c+5d =16$
• $8a+4b+6c+2d = -16$
• $2a+6b+4c+8d = 16$
• $5a+3b+7c+d= -16$

Then $(a+d)(b+c)$ equals

1. $-4$
2. $0$
3. $16$
4. $-16$

$\color{maroon}{a+7b+3c+5d=16}$

$\color{maroon}{2a+6b+4c+8d=16}$

Or, $(a+a)+(7b-b)+(3c+c)+ (5d+3d) = 16$

Or, $(a+7b+3c+5d)+(a-b+c+3d) = 16$

Or, $a-b+c+3d = 0 \qquad\qquad ∵\big[\color{blue}{ a+7b+3c+5d=16}\big]$ ------------- 1)

$\color{maroon}{8a+4b+6c+2d = -16}$

$\color{maroon}{5a+3b+7c+d = -16}$

Or, $(5a+3a)+(3b+b)+(7c-c)+(d+d) = -16$

Or, $(5a+3b+7c+d)+(3a+b-c+d) = -16$

Or, $3a+b-c+d = 0 \qquad \qquad \big[∵\color{blue}{5a+3b+7c+d = -16}\big]$ ------------- 2)

Adding 1) & 2)

$3a+b-c+d=0\\a-b+c+3d=0$

Or, $4a +4d = 0$

Or, $a+d = 0$

Now, we've to find $\color{maroon}{(a+d)(b+c) = ?}$

$(a+d)(b+c) = (0)\times(b+c) \qquad \qquad ∵ \big[\color{blue}{a+d=0}\big]$

∴$\color{red}{(a+d)(b+c) = 0}$

$\color{green}{\text{Hence, option }} \color{orange}{ B)} \color{green}{ \text{ is the right answer}}$.

Nice. Just a question - suppose if someone ask you to write a program to solve such a question how will you do? Any different method exist which can work for an idiot like computer?

This is my code for idiot computer to check One ,Two ,Three variables linear equations.Please Check Once and comment on me.

$a+7b+3c+5d=16 ..............eq.1$

$8a+4b+6c+2d=−16.................eq.2$

$2a+6b+4c+8d=16...................eq.3$

$5a+3b+7c+d=−16....................eq.4$

add $eq.2$ and $eq.3$, we get,

$10a + 10b + 10c + 10d = 0$

$a + b + c + d = 0.....................eq.5$

add $eq.1$ and $eq.4$, we get,

$6a + 10b + 10c + 6d = 0$

$6(a+d) + 10(b+c) = 0$

on putting the value of $(a+d)$ from eq.5, we get

$-6(b+c) + 10(b+c) = 0$

$b+c = 0$

$a+d = 0$ is also 0

So, $(a+d)*(b+c) = 0$

a+7b+3c+5d=16....(1)

8a+4b+6c+2d=-16......(2)

2a+6b+4c+8d=16......(3)

5a+3b+7c+d=-16......(4)

add (1) and (4) and add(2) and (3)

u will get

a+d=-(b+c)

and a+d=-10/6(b+c)

subtract both u will get (b+c)=0

so (a+d)(b+c)=0
