**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

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

**2)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

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

**3)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let the required number of rounds be x.

More radius, less rounds (Inverse Proportion)

Radius in cm == Â Round

15 == 125

25 == x

âŸ¹ x=(15 * 125)/25 = 75 rounds

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Volume if cylinder = Ï€$(R)^2$h

R is the radius and h is the height of cylinder

Volume = 98808 ml

It is given that R = $\frac{3}{4}$h

$\frac{4}{3}$ $(R)^3$ Ï€ = 98808

R = 28.68

Diameter = 28.68 Ã— 2 ~58

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let R and H be the radius and height of cylinder

Curved Surface area of cylinder = 2$\barwedge$RH = 1232

($\barwedge$RH= 616 sqr cm)

Total surface area of cylinder = 2$\barwedge$RH + 2$\barwedge(R)^2$ = 2$\barwedge$R(H+R)

it is given that CurvedSurfaceArea/TotalSurfaceArea = 4/5

1232/(1232Â + 2$\barwedge(R)^2$) = 4/5

R = 7 cm

2$\barwedge$RH = 1232

2$\barwedge$7H = 1232

44H =1232

H = 28 cm

Â

Â

**6)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

let the height and radius of cylinder be H mtr and R mtr

R + H = 18

total surface area of cylinder = 2$\barwedge$RH + 2$\barwedge(R)^2$ = 792

R(H + R) = $\frac{792×7}{22×2}$

R = 7 mtr

H = 18-7 = 11 mtr

volume = $\frac{22}{7}(R)^2(H)$

Volume = 1694 cubic mtr

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

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

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

$\pi \times r^{2} \times h$ = $616 m^{3}$

Curved Surface Area of Cylinder=$2\times \pi \times r \times h$=$352 m^{2}$

$\pi \times r \times h$=$176$

Replacing $\pi \times r \times h$ in Volume formula we get,

$ r \times 176$=$616$

$r=3.5 m$

Total Surface Area = Curved Surface Area + 2$\times$ Area of base

=$352 + 2\times pi \times r^{2}$

=$352 + 2\times pi \times 3.5^{2}$

=$352+77$

=$429 m^{2}.$

Hence Option A is the correct answer.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

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 = $\pi r^2 h$

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

= $17248 cm^3$

**9)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

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.

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

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)

**11)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

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)

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

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)

**13)Â AnswerÂ (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

**14)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Assuming the sides of the cube = a, then surface painted blue = 6a$^2$

Now after cutting into half the blue surface = 3a$^2$ for each solid and a new colourless surface with area a$^2$ is generated.

Hence the total surface areaÂ = 3a$^2$ + a$^2$ = 4a$^2$

% surface areaÂ not painted blue =Â $\ \dfrac{\ a^2}{4a^2}\times\ 100$ = 25

**15)Â AnswerÂ (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.

**16)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Total surface area of cube =Â $6\times\ 8^2\ =384$

Amount of paint required =Â $\ \frac{\ 384}{16}=24\ kgs$

Cost of 24kgs paint =Â $24\times\ 36.5\ =876$

**17)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Area of the tunnel to be filled with concrete = 16*8-$\pi\ \left(32\right)$

Length of the length along which the tunnel has to be filled with concrete = 500m

Volume =Â 16*8-$\pi\ \left(32\right)$*500

= $32(4-\pi)$*500

Cost of concrete perÂ $1 m^3$ = 1000

Cost ofÂ $32(4-\pi)$*500 =Â $32(4-\pi)$*500*1000

=$16(4-\pi)*10^{6}$

C is the correct answer.

**18)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Given the length, breadth and height of a rectangular cuboid are in the ratio 1: 2 : 3.

Let the length, breadth and height be k, 2k, and 3k units where ‘k’ is a constant.

Volume of the cuboid(V’) = $l\times b\times h$ units = $k\times 2k\times 3k$Â = $6k^3$ units

GivenÂ the length, breadth and height are increased by 100% eachÂ .

Then the new length, breadth and height will be doubled.

So new length, breadth and height of the rectangular cuboid are 2k, 4k, and 6k units.

New Volume of the cuboid (V’) = $2k\times 4k\times 6k = 48k^3$ units.

Increase in the volume of the cuboid = V’ – V = $48k^3 – 6k^3 = 42k^3 = 7 [6k^3] = 7V$

Therefore the volume has increased 7 times the initial volume.

**19)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Let the volume of watermelon = $V$

Total surface area = $S$

Thickness of the skin = $t$

=> Volume usable for juice = $V – S t$

Hence, if total surface area is minimum then usable volume of the watermelon will be max.

For equal volume, sphere has the least surface area.

Ans – (E)

**20)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Total number of cubes will be = $\frac{12 \times 12 \times 12}{3 \times 3 \times 3}$ = 64

Cubes with 3 sides painted = cubes at corner sides = 8

Cubes with 2 sides painted = cubes on lines = 24

Cubes with 1 sides painted = cubes on middle of surface = 24

So cubes with no side painted = 64 – (8+24+24) = 8
