**Instructions**

Read the following information and answer the questions based on it.

The length ,breadth and height of a rectangular piece of wood in the 4cm,3cm, 5cm respectively

Opposite side of 5cm x 4 cm pieces are coloured in red colour

Oppsite sides 4cm x 3 cm ,are cloured in blue

Rest 5 cm x 3 cm are coloured in green in both sides

Now the piece is cut in such way that a cuboid of 1cm x 1cm x 1cm will be made

**Question 1:Â **How many cuboids shall have all the three colours?

a)Â 8

b)Â 10

c)Â 12

d)Â 14

e)Â None of these

**1)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

The number of cuboid which will have all the three colours are the corner pieces.

Thus, 8 cuboids will have all the three colours.

=> Ans – (A)

**Question 2:Â **How many cuboids shall not any colour?

a)Â No any

b)Â 2

c)Â 4

d)Â 6

e)Â None of these

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

Number of cuboids which do not have any colour = $(5-2) \times (4-2) \times (3-2)$

= $3 \times 2 \times 1=6$

=> Ans – (D)

**Question 3:Â **How many cuboids shall have only two colours red and green in their two sides?

a)Â 8

b)Â 12

c)Â 16

d)Â 20

e)Â None of these

**3)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Number of cuboids whichÂ have only two colours red and green in their two sides are the middle cuboids at the corner edges. There are 4 such edges which have combination of red and green colour.

Number of required cuboids = $(5-2) \times 4$

= $3 \times 4=12$

=> Ans – (B)

**Question 4:Â **How many cuboids shall have only one colour ?

a)Â 12

b)Â 16

c)Â 22

d)Â 28

e)Â None of these

**4)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

Number of cuboids which have only 1 colour are the middle cuboids in all the faces. Also, there are 2 types of each faces.

2*(B-2)*(H-2)+2*(H-2)*(L-2).

=2*(4-2)*(3-2)+2*(3-2)*(5-2)+2*(5-2)*(4-2).

= 2*2*1 + 2*1*3 + 2*3*2.= 4 + 6 + 12.

=22.

**Question 5:Â **The sum of the radius and height of a cylinder is 42 cm. Its total surface area is 3696 cm 2. What is the volume of cylinder ?

a)Â 17428 cubic cm

b)Â 17248 cubic cm

c)Â 17244 cubic cm

d)Â 17444 cubic cm

e)Â None of these

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Total surface area of cylinder

=> $2 \pi r h + 2 \pi r^2 = 3696$

=> $2 \pi r (r + h) = 3696$

$\because (r + h) = 42$ Â [Given]

=> $2 \times \frac{22}{7} \times r \times 42 = 3696$

=> $44 \times 6 \times r = 3696$

=> $r = \frac{3696}{44 \times 6} = 14$ cm

=> $h = 42 – 14 = 28$ cm

$\therefore$ Volume of cylinder = $\pi r^2 h$

= $\frac{22}{7} \times 14 \times 14 \times 28$

= $17248 cm^3$

**Question 6:Â **The respective ratio of radii of two right circular cylinders (A and B) is 4 : 5. The respective ratioof volume of cylinders A and B is 12 : 25. What is the respective ratio of the heights of cylinders A and B ?

a)Â 2 : 3

b)Â 3 : 5

c)Â 5 : 8

d)Â 4 : 5

e)Â 3 : 4

**6)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

Volume of a cylinder =$\pi r^2 h$

where r and h are the radius and height of the cylinder respectively.

The ratio of volumes and ratio of radii of the two cylinders is given.

Ratio of square of their radii = 16 : 25

Therefore the ratio of their heights $h_1$ : $h_2$ = $12 \times 25$ : $16 \times 25$

where $h_1$ and $h_2$ are the heights of two cylinders.

the ratio of their heights = 12 : 16 = 3 : 4

Option E is the correct answer

**Question 7:Â **The respective ratio of radii of two right circular cylinders (A and B) is 4 : 7. The respective ratio of the heights of cylinders A and B is 2 : 1. What is the respective ratio of volumes of cylinders A and B ?

a)Â 25 : 42

b)Â 23 : 42

c)Â 32 : 49

d)Â 30 : 49

e)Â 36 : 49

**7)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

Volume of a cylinder = $ \pi r^2 h$

where r and h are the radius and height of the cylinder respectively.

The ratio of volumes of the two cylinders will be equal to the ratio of $r^2 h$ of both the cylinders..

For cylinder 1 $r^2 h$ = $4^2 \times 2 = 32$

For cylinder 2 $r^2 h$ = $7^2 \times 1 = 49$

Ratio of their volumes = $\frac{32}{49}$

Option C is the correct answer.

**Question 8:Â **The respective ratio of radii of two right circular cylinders (A and B) is 3 : 2. The respective ratio of volumes of cylinders A and B is 9 : 7, then what are the heights of cylinders A and B ?

a)Â 8 : 5

b)Â 4 : 7

c)Â 7 : 6

d)Â 5 : 4

e)Â 6 : 5

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Volume of a cylinder = $\pi r^2 h$

where r and h are radius and height of the cylinder respectively.

Let $r_1$ , $h_1$ , $r_2$ and $h_2$ be the radius and heights of the two cylinders respectively.

$\pi (r_1)^2 h_1$ : $\pi (r_2)^2 h_2$ = 9 : 7 ————- 1

Ratio of radii $r_1 : r_2 = 3 : 2$

Ratio of square of radii = 9 : 4

Replacing the ratio of radii in 1

$9h_1 : 4h_2$ $= 9: 7$

$h_1 : h_2$ $= (9\times 4) : (7\times 9)= 4 : 7$

Option B is the correct answer.

**Question 9:Â **The edge of an ice cube is 14 cm. The volume of the largest cylindrical ice cube that can be formed out of it is

a)Â 2200 cu. cm

b)Â 2000 cu. cm

c)Â 2156 cu. cm

d)Â 2400 cu. cm

e)Â None of these

**9)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

Radius of the cylinder = r = $\frac{14}{2}$ = 7

Height of the cylinder = h =14

Volume = Pi x r^{2 }x h

= $\frac{22}{7}$ x 7 x 7 x 14 = 2156

**Question 10:Â **The edge of an ice cube is 14 cm. The volume of the largest cylindrical ice cube that can be fit into it?

a)Â 2200 cu. cm

b)Â 2000 cu. cm

c)Â 2156 cu. cm

d)Â 2400 cu. cm

e)Â None of these

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

Radius of the cylinder = r =Â $\frac{14}{2}$ = 7

Height of the cylinder = h =14

Volume = Pi x r^{2Â }x h

=Â $\frac{22}{7}$ x 7 x 7 x 14 = 2156
