**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

The area of the arc = $ \frac{36}{360} * \pi * r^2$ = 3.85

Solving, we get r = 3.5

Length of the arc = $ \frac{36}{360} * 2 * \pi * r$ = 2.2

**2) Answer (B)**

Let say, radius of the circle is r.

Area of the square =484 sq. cm.

So,Side of the square$\sqrt{484\ }=22$ cm.

same wire is used to form the circle.

So, perimeter of the circle will be same as perimeter of the square.

So, $2\times\pi\ \times r=4\times\ 22.$

or,$r=\frac{88\ }{2\pi\ }=14.$

So,Area of the circle$\pi r^2=\pi\times14^2=\ \frac{\ 22}{7}\times14^2=616\ cm^2.\ $

B is correct choice.

**3) Answer (B)**

According to question :

2×(22/7)×r=22.

or,r=(7/2)=3.5.

So,Area of circle=$πr^2$

=$(22/7)(3.5)^2$.

=38.5 $cm^2$

So,Area of semicircle = (38.5/2)=19.25$cm^2$

B is correct choice.

**4) Answer (A)**

We know that

radius of incircle of equilateral triangle = $\frac{side}{2\sqrt{3}}$

radius of circumcircle of equilateral triangle = $\frac{side}{\sqrt{3}}$

hence there ratio = 1:2

**5) Answer (D)**

Circumference of circle = $2\pi\ r$

Circumference of circle when radius increased by x = $2\pi\ \left(r+x\right)=2\pi\ r+2\pi\ x$

Hence, circumference of the circle increased by $2\pi x$ units.

**6) Answer (C)**

W seats left of P.

**7) Answer (B)**

$\pi\ r^2=9\pi\ $

$r^2=9$

r = 3

Circumference = $2\pi\ r$= $2\pi\ \times\ 3=6\pi\ $

**8) Answer (D)**

**9) Answer (C)**

Area of the circle = $\pi\ r^2$

616 = $\frac{22}{7}\times\ r^2$

$r^2=196$

r = 14 m

Hence diameter = 2r = 28 m

**10) Answer (A)**

**11) Answer (B)**

C which is the length of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle of a circumcircle passing through the centre of the circumcircle.

Sides are given as 2 cm, $2\sqrt{3}$ cm and 4 cm,

Since hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is the longest side i.e c = 4 cm which makes it the diameter of the circumcircle.

Therefore, area of the circumcircle = $\pi \times R^2 = \pi \times 2^2$

$=\pi \times 4 cm^2$

Option B is correct.

**12) Answer (A)**

Given

Encloses area by forming the square = 121$cm^2$

we know that

Area of square =$a^2$

so,

$a^2$=121

a=11 cm

now perimeter of square = perimeter of circle according to question

from here we get r=7 cm

Area of circle =$\pi\text{r}^2$

= $\frac{22}{7}\cdot7^2=154cm^2$ Ans

**13) Answer (C)**

area of circle = $\pi\times r^2$

radius = r

ATQ

$\pi(r + 1)^2- \pi\times r^2 = 22$

$\pi((r + 1)^2- r^2) = 22$

$\frac{1+ 2r}{7}=1$

2r = 6

r = 3cm

**14) Answer (D)**

it becomes a right angle triangle

chord = 24 cm

so

base of triangle = half of 24 = 12 cm

height = 5cm

apply pythagoras’s thearom

hypotenuse = $\sqrt(5^2 + 12^2)$

= 13cm

**15) Answer (B)**

Circumference=$ 2\times \frac{22}{7} \times R=440$

so Radius of circle=70

now radius of track=7 so RADIUS of bigger circle=77.

AREA of TRACK = AREA OF BIGGER CIRCLE – AREA OF SMALL CIRCLE

=$ \frac {22}{7} \times 77 \times 77 – \frac {22}{7} \times 70 \times 70$

=3234m
