b)Â 94 cm

c)Â 100 cm

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

If the cylinder is cut along its height to form a rectangle of dimensions 80 cm X 30 cm, the line joining one vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side is along which the ant has traveled.

Path travelled by the ant is the dotted line AE.

Length = $\sqrt{40^2+30^2}=50$ cm

**2)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Imagine the cylinder to be cut across AD in such a way that it forms a rectangle with sides 2*(22/7)*14 = 88 cm and 66 cm. The required path is the diagonal of the rectangle = 110 cm.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The ratio of base areas is 16:9. So, ratio of the prices is 3/4*9/16 = 27/64

**4)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

3.14 * 12 * 12 * h = 4/3 * 3.14 * 3 * 3 * 3

So, h = 0.25 cm

**5)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Since the cubes are painted after the 10x11x12 cuboid is cut, all the unit cubes will have their all faces covered with paint.

So, there will be no cube that will have none of its faces covered by paint.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The number of unit cubes that have no face painted = number of unit cubes that are hidden = (5-2)*(6-2)*(7-2) = 3*4*5 = 60

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

TSA before the force was applied = 2(3*4 +Â 4*1+3*1) = 38 sq m

After the force is applied, the cuboid becomes a parallelopiped with a slant height of 2m and angle of slant surface is 30Âº.

Thus, the height h = 2 sin 30 = 1m

So the surfaces will be 2 parallelograms with bases 4m and height 1m, 2 rectangles with sides 3m and 2m and 2 rectangles with sides 3m and 4m.

TSA = 2*(4*1)+2*(3*2)+2*(3*4) = 2*22 = 44 sq m

% Change in area = (44-38) / 38 = 15.78% increase in area

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The unit cubes with paint on exactly 2 faces reside on the edges of the cuboid. The cuboid has 12 edges. There are 4 edges of length 12, 4 edges of length 11 and 4 edges of length 10. On the edge with length 12 unit cubes, the number of cubes which have exactly 2 faces covered by paint = 12-2 = 10. Similarly, on the edge with 11 unit cubes, the number of cubes covered by paint on exactly 2 faces = 11-2 = 9. The number of cubes with exactly 2 faces covered by paint on the 10 unit cube edge is 10-2 = 8. Therefore, the total number of unit cubes which have exactly 2 faces covered by paint = 4*(10+9+8) = 4*27 = 108.
