d)Â $\triangle BAC \sim\triangle PMN$

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

As we can see, the 2 triangles are similar. Their sides are in the ratio 2:1 (MPN: ABC). Hence, BC will be 7.5/2 = 3.75 cm. Option B is the right answer.

**2)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

ratio of heights of two similar triangles is always equal to the ratio of the corresponding sides of the triangles

i.e, $\frac{\text{height of } \triangle LMN}{\text{height of } \triangle OPQ}$ = $\frac{\text{length of LM}}{\text{length of OP}}$

put in values from the question

$\frac{48}{36}$ = $\frac{\text{length of LM}}{12}$

length of LM = 16

**3)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

We have to select three values out of the four length values given so that sum of any two values in the chosen set is larger than the third value.

=> Three out of four combination problem and we can choose in $C_3^4$ = 4 ways.

But because of the triangle formation constraint, sides 2cm, 3cm can’t be taken together in any choice.

This reduces number of combinations by 2, [2, 3, 5] and [2, 3, 6]

=> The only two possibilities, [2, 5, 6] and [3, 5, 6].

Ans – (B)

**4)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Two congruent triangles are always equal in area.

$\because$ $\triangle$ABC $\cong$ $\triangle$PQR

=> area($\triangle$ABC) = area($\triangle$PQR) = 60 $cm^2$

**5)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

In Similar triangles , corresponding sides are of same proportion.

$\frac{ Perimeter Î”ABC }{ Perimeter Î”PQR }=\frac{AB}{PR}$

$\frac{ 36 }{ 24 }=\frac{AB}{10}$

Ab = 15

**6)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

It is given that Î”DEF $\sim$ Î”GHI

Also, length of DE = 4 cm and length of the corresponding side GH = 9 cm

=> Ratio of Area of Î”DEF : Area of Î”GHI = Ratio of square of corresponding sides = $(DE)^2$ : $(GH)^2$

=Â $\frac{(4)^2}{(9)^2} = \frac{16}{81}$

$\therefore$ The required ratio is 16 : 81

=> Ans – (C)

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

It is given that Î”AB $\sim$ Î”DEF

Also, length of AB = 10 cm and length of the corresponding side DE = 6 cm

=> Ratio of Perimeter of Î”ABC : Perimeter of Î”DEF = Ratio of corresponding sides = AB : DE

=Â $\frac{10}{6} = \frac{5}{3}$

$\therefore$ The required ratio is 5 : 3

=> Ans – (A)

**8)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

In a parallelogram, rhombus or kite, both pairs of opposite sides are parallel, and thus there are at least two congruent triangles which is not the case in a trapezium which has only one pair of parallel sides.

=> Ans – (C)

**9)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Ratio of areas of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of square of the corresponding sides.

Let the ratio of corresponding sides = $\frac{x}{y}$

=> $\frac{x^2}{y^2}=\frac{5}{7}$

=> $(\frac{x}{y})^2=\frac{5}{7}$

=> $\frac{x}{y}=\frac{\sqrt5}{\sqrt7}$

=> Ans – (C)

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let us assume that the length of the third side is x units.

Case 1:Â When the side PQ is the largest among three sides.

893 + x > 983

x > 90

Case 2: When the side QR is the largest among the three sides.

893 + 983 > x

x < 1876

Hence we can say that x $\epsilon$ (90, 1876)

Hence, the number of with integral value =Â 1875 – 91 +1 = 1785.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

It is given that Î”ABC $\sim$ Î”PQR

Let length of AB = $x$ cm and length of the corresponding side PQ = 12 cm

=> Ratio of Area of Î”ABC : Area of Î”PQR = Ratio of square of corresponding sides = $(AB)^2$ : $(PQ)^2$

=> $(\frac{x}{12})^2 = \frac{121}{64}$

=> $\frac{x}{12}=\sqrt{\frac{121}{64}}=\frac{11}{8}$

=> $x=\frac{11}{8}\times12=16.5$ cm

=> Ans – (C)

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

For similar triangles

Ratio of sides = $\sqrt{ \text(ratio of areas)}=\sqrt{36:9}=2:1$

AB/PQ = 2/1

AB/4 = 2/1

AB = 8

So the answer is option C.

**13)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

It is given that Î”ABC $\sim$ Î”PQR

Also, perimeter of âˆ†ABC and âˆ†PQR are 36 cm and 24 cm

=> Ratio of Perimeter of Î”ABC : Perimeter of Î”PQR = Ratio of corresponding sides = AB : PQ

=Â $\frac{36}{24} = \frac{AB}{10}$

=> AB = $\frac{3}{2} \times 10=15$ cm

=> Ans – (C)

**14)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

It is given that Î”ABC $\sim$ Î”DEF

Also, perimeter of âˆ†ABC and âˆ†DEF are 30 cm and 18 cm

=> Ratio of Perimeter of Î”ABC : Perimeter of Î”DEF = Ratio of corresponding sides = AB : DE

=Â $\frac{30}{18} = \frac{AB}{36}$

=> AB = $\frac{5}{3} \times 36=60$ cm

=> Ans – (A)

**15)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Given :Â $\frac{AB}{DE}=\frac{BC}{EF}=\frac{AC}{DF}$

=> AB = DE , BC = EF , AC = DF

Thus, all corresponding sides of the two triangles are equal.

$\therefore$ TheÂ two triangles are similar byÂ SSS similarity.

=> Ans – (B)

**16)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the sides of $\triangle$ ABC be $a,b,c$, where the largest side = $’c’$

If $c^2=a^2+b^2$, then the angle at $C$ is right angle.

If $c^2<a^2+b^2$, then the angle at $C$ is acute angle.

If $c^2>a^2+b^2$, then the angle at $C$ is obtuse angle.

Now, according to ques, => $6^2=36$

and $3^2+4^2=9+16=25$

$\therefore c^2>a^2+b^2$, hence it is an obtuse angled triangle.

=> Ans – (B)

**17)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

GivenÂ : $AD:PS=3:2$

To findÂ : $AB : PQ=?$

SolutionÂ : The given triangles are equiangular, i.e.Â $\angle$Â A =Â $\angle$Â P ,Â $\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â Q ,Â $\angle$Â C =Â $\angle$Â R

Now, inÂ $\triangle$Â ABD and $\triangle$ PQS,

$\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â Q

$\angle$Â BAD =Â $\angle$Â QPS Â Â [$\because$ $\angle$Â A = $\angle$Â P => $\frac{1}{2}$ $\angle$ A = $\frac{1}{2}$ $\angle$ P =>Â $\angle$Â BAD =Â $\angle$Â QPS]

So, by A-A criterion of similarity, we have :

$\triangle$ ABD $\sim$ $\triangle$ PQS

=> $\frac{AB}{PQ}=\frac{AD}{PS}=\frac{3}{2}$

=> Ans – (B)

**18)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

In $\triangle$ ABC andÂ $\triangle$Â DEF,

$\angle A=\angle D$ Â Â (given)

$\frac{AB}{DE}=\frac{AC}{DF}$ Â Â (given)

$\therefore$Â $\triangle$Â ABC $\sim$Â $\triangle$Â DEF byÂ *SAS* similarity.

=> Ans – (A)

**19)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

GivenÂ : CD bisects AB, => AD = DB = $\frac{8}{2}=4$ cm

To findÂ : $\frac{ar(\triangle DBC)}{ar(\triangle ABC)}=?$

SolutionÂ : Clearly $\triangle$ ABC is a right angled triangle, $\because (10)^2=(8)^2+(6)^2$

Thus, AC is the hypotenuse and $\triangle$ ABC is right angled at B.

=> AB = 8 cm is the height of triangle

$\therefore$Â $\frac{ar(\triangle DBC)}{ar(\triangle ABC)}=\frac{\frac{1}{2}\times(DB)\times(BC)}{\frac{1}{2}\times(AB)\times(BC)}$

= $\frac{4\times6}{8\times6}=\frac{1}{2}$

=> Ans – (C)

**20)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

According to angle sum propertyÂ : $\angle$ C = $50^\circ$ andÂ $\angle$ N = $80^\circ$

Now, in $\triangle$ ABC andÂ $\triangle$Â Â MNP,

$\angle$ A =Â $\angle$Â N = $80^\circ$

The remaining 2 angles are equal to $50^\circ$, thus either $\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â P orÂ $\angle$Â B =Â $\angle$Â M

ButÂ $\angle$Â A is corresponding toÂ $\angle$Â N.

Thus,Â $\triangle BAC \sim\triangle MNP$

=> Ans – (B)
