Answers & Solutions:

1) Answer (B)

Applying cosine rule in triangle ACD,

$100+X^2-2\times\ 10\times\ X\cos30=400$

$X^2-10X\sqrt{\ 3}-300=0$

Solving, we get X = $\left(\frac{10\sqrt{\ 3}+10\sqrt{\ 15}}{2}\right)$

Hence, area = 10Xsin 30 = $\frac{\left(\frac{10\sqrt{\ 3}+10\sqrt{\ 15}}{2}\right)10}{2}$

= $25(\sqrt{3}+\sqrt{15})$

2) Answer (B)

We need to find out p.

Angle ADE = 180 – 2x

Angle BDF = 180 – 2y

Now, 180 – 2y + p + 180 – 2x = 180 [Straight line = 180 deg]

p = 2x + 2y – 180

Also, x + y + 50 = 180 [Sum of the angles of triangle = 180]

x + y = 130

p = 260 – 180 = 80 degrees.

3) Answer: 3500

We can say 40m is the perimeter of the park
so side of rhombus = 10
Now $\frac{1}{2}\times\ d_1\times\ d_2\ =\ 96$
so we get $\ d_1\times\ d_2\ =\ 192$   (1)
And as we know diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of each other :
so $\ \frac{d_1^2}{4}+\ \frac{d_2^2}{4}=\ 100$
so we get $\ d_1^2+\ d_2^2=\ 400$    (2)
Solving (1) and (2)
We get $d_1=12$ and$d_2=16$
Now the cost, in INR, of laying electric wires along its two diagonals, at the rate of ₹125 per m, is= (12+16)(125) =3500

4) Answer (A)

Let us draw the rectangle.

Now, definitely, three sides should be fenced at Rs 100/ft, and one side should be fenced at Rs 200/ft.

In this question, we are going to assume that the L is greater than B.

Hence, the one side painted at Rs 200/ft should be B to minimise costs.

Hence, the total cost = 200B + 100B + 100L + 100L = 300B + 200L

Now, L x B = 60000

B = 60000/L

Hence, total cost = 300B + 200L = 18000000/L + 200L

To minimise this cost, we can use AM>=GM,

$\frac{\frac{18000000}{L}+200L}{2}\ge\sqrt{\ \frac{18000000}{L}\times\ 200L}$

$\frac{18000000}{L}+200L\ge2\sqrt{\ 18000000\times\ 200}$

$\frac{18000000}{L}+200L\ge2\times\ 60000$

Hence, minimum cost = Rs 120000.

5) Answer (A)

We are given that :

Let DP =x
So AB =x
So CD = 2x
Now let height of trapezium be h
we can say A(Parallelogram ABPD ) = xh
And A (BPC) =$\frac{1}{2}xh$
Now by condition$xh-\frac{1}{2}xh=10$
so xh =20
Now therefore area of trapezium ABCD = $\frac{1}{2}\left(x+2x\right)h\ =\ \frac{3}{2}xh\ =\ 30$

6) Answer: 120

We know that Inradius=$\frac{\left(Perpendicular+Base-Hypotenuse\right)}{2}$


h-p = 2 or h= p+2.

Now, $p^2+100\ =\ h^2$

$p^2+100\ =\ \left(p+2\right)^2$

$p^2+100\ =\ p^2+4p+4$

4p = 96


Hence, Area = $\frac{1}{2}\times\ 10\times\ 24\ =\ 120$.

7) Answer (A)

Since a regular hexagon can be considered to be made up of 6 equilateral triangles, a line joining the farthest vertices of a hexagon can be considered to be made up using the sides of two opposite equilateral triangle forming the hexagon. Hence, its length should be twice the side of the hexagon, in this case, 4 cm.

Now, AD divided the hexagon into two symmetrical halves. Hence, AD bisects angle D, and hence, angle ADC is $60^{\circ\ }$.

We can find out the value of AT using cosine formula:

$AT^2=\ 4^2+1^2-2\times\ 1\times\ 4\cos60$

$AT^2=\ 17-4=13$

$AT=\sqrt{\ 13}$

8) Answer (D)

Area of a regular hexagon = $\frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2}x^2$

Area of an equilateral triangle = $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\left(a\right)^2$ ; where a = side of the triangle

Since the area of the two figures are equal, we can equate them as folllows: $\frac{3\sqrt{3}}{2}x^2=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}\left(12\right)^2$

On simplifying: $x^2=24\ $

$\therefore\ x=2\sqrt{6}$

9) Answer (D)

Let ED = $\sqrt{\ 3}x$
In triangle CDE, $\tan\ 30\ =\ \frac{CD}{\sqrt{\ 3}x}$ => CD = x

In triangle BDE, $\tan\ 45\ =\ \frac{BD}{\sqrt{\ 3}x}$ => BD = $\sqrt{\ 3}x$ => BC = $\sqrt{\ 3}x\ -x$

In triangle ADE, $\tan\ 60\ =\ \frac{AD}{\sqrt{\ 3}x}$ => AD = 3x => AB = $3x\ -\ \sqrt{\ 3}x$

AB : BC : CD = $(3 – \sqrt 3) : (\sqrt 3 – 1) : 1$

10) Answer (A)

Since A, B and C are adjacent faces. If we remove them, the resultant solid will also be a cube with side 5.

Hence total number of cubes unpainted = $5^3$ = 125

11) Answer (C)

Given, CE=0.5, BC = 1.3 and ED=2.5

Triangle CEB is a right-angled triangle => EB = 1.2

Triangles ECB is similar to triangle EDA

EB/EC = AE/ED  => AE = 6

Hence total distance travelled = AB + BC + CD = 7.2 + 1.3 + 3.5 = 11.5km

12) Answer: 10

Now we know that the perpendicular from the centre to a chord bisects the chord. Hence at the point of intersection of tangent, the chord will be divided into two parts of 3 cm each. As you can clearly see in the diagram, a right angled triangle is formed there.

Hence   $\left(r+1\right)^2=r^2+9$ or $r^{2\ }+1+2r\ =\ r^2+9\ or\ 2r=8\ or\ r=4cm$

Hence the radius of the larger circle is 5cm and diameter is 10cm.

13) Answer (D)

Equation of circle $x^2+y^2+2gx+2fy+c=0$

It passes through (0,0), (4,0) and (3,9). Substitute each point in the above equation:

=> On substituting the value (0,0) in the above equation, we obtain: $c=0$

=> On substituting the value (4,0) in the above equation, we obtain:  $16+0+8g+0 = 0$ ; $g=-2$

=> On substituting the value (3,9) in the above equation, we obtain: $9+81-12+18f = 0$ ; $f= -13/3$

Radius of the circle = $\sqrt{\ g^2+f^2-c}$ => $r^2=\frac{205}{9}$

Therefore, Area = $\pi\ r^2=\frac{205\pi\ }{9}$

14) Answer (A)

Let the base radius be 3r.

Height of upper cone is 9 so, by symmetry radius of upper cone will be r.

Volume of frustum=$\frac{\pi}{3}\left(9r^2\cdot27-r^2.9\right)$

Volume of upper cone = $\frac{\pi}{3}.r^2.9$

Difference= $\frac{\pi}{3}\cdot9\cdot r^2\cdot25=225$ => $\frac{\pi}{3}\cdot r^2=1$

Volume of larger cone = $\frac{\pi}{3}\cdot9r^2\cdot27=243$

15) Answer (A)

Since we see that both y and x has even terms, it implies the curve is symmetric along x-axis as well as y-axis.

Required area = 4*(area in quadrant I)

Area in quadrant I is given by

A =$_0\int^1\sqrt{\ x^2-x^4}dx\ $

A = $_0\int^1x\sqrt{1-x^2}dx$

take $1-x^2\ =\ t^2$, then $-2x\ dx\ =\ 2\ t\ dt$. when x =0 then t = 1 and  when x = 1 then t = 0

Updated integral can be written as

$\int_0^1t^{2\ }dt$ = $\left[\frac{t^3\ }{3}\right]_0^1\ =\ \ \frac{\ 1}{3}$

Required area = 4*A = $\ \frac{\ 4}{3}$

16) Answer (B)

Let the locus of the center be represented by (h,k)

Since it passes through origin. Radius r = $\sqrt{\ h^2+k^2}$

Since it cuts off chord of length = 2a on y=c. We draw 1 perpendicular bisector of the chord till the center and make a line which is intersecting point of line y=c and the circle.

We obtain a right triangle that has “r” as its hypotenuse and a and |c-k| as its sides.

Applying Pythogoras theorm,

$r^2\ =\ a^2\ +\ \left(c-k\ \right)^2$

it implies

$h^2+k^2\ =\ a^2\ +\ \left(c-k\ \right)^2$

$h^2+k^2\ =\ a^2\ +\ c^2+k^2\ -2ck$

$h^2+2ck\ =\ a^2\ +\ c^2$

replacing (h,k) by (x,y)

we get $x^2+2cy\ =\ a^2\ +\ c^2$

17) Answer (B)

It is given that the slope of the curve at any point P is equal to x.

It is also known that, to find the slope at any point P(x,y), we can find $\ \frac{\ dy}{dx}$ of the curve at that point P.

For $\ \frac{\ dy}{dx}$ of a curve to be equal to x, the original curve must be of the form $\ ax^2\ +c$, where a and c are any constants.

Now, y= $\ ax^2\ +c$ represents a family of parabolas.

Hence, option B

18) Answer (B)

For 3x+4y-24=0 can be re-written as $3x+4y=24$

=>$\frac{3x+4y\ \ }{24}=1$

=>$\ \frac{\ x}{8}+\ \frac{\ y}{6}=1$.

So, this becomes the equation of the straight line of the form $\ \frac{\ x}{a}+\ \frac{\ y}{b}=1$, where a and b are x and y intercepts respectively. The X and Y intercepts for this equation are 8 and 6 respectively.

Similarly 3x-4y+24=0 can be re-written as $\ \frac{\ x}{-8}+\ \frac{\ y}{6}=1$. The X and Y intercepts for this equation are 8 and -6 respectively.

So, we get the following triangle and the incircle can be drawn as:

So, the triangle has sides of length 10,10 and 16.

Area of the triangle= $\ \frac{\ 1}{2}\times\ Base\times\ Height$= $\ \frac{\ 1}{2}\times\ 16\times\ 6$= 48

We know that r*s= Area of the triangle, where r is the inradius and s is the semi-perimeter. s= $\ \frac{\ 1}{2}\left(16+10+10\right)$= 18

So, 18r= 48

=> Or, r= $\ \frac{\ 48}{18}=\ \ \frac{\ 8}{3}$

19) Answer (A)

Using pythagoras theorem, we can clearly see from above that the shortest distance between Sameera and Meera is 10km.

20) Answer (A)

Cubes are a 3-D figure, and so, the intersection of two 3-D figure must be a 2-D figure.

So, Cube cannot be the intersection of two cubes.
