**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the sides be 10l and 10b. So, area = 100lb.

Sides after the change = 12.5l and 7.5b

New area = 12.5l*7.5b = 93.75lb

So, percentage change in area = 6.25%

**2)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the original length be L and the original breadth be B

So, the original area is LB

After the changes, the area is 1.2L * 0.8 B = 0.96 LB

As, 0.96 LB = 192 $m^2$,

LB = 200 $m^2$

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Area of rectangle = (length) (breadth) = $2(b)^{2}$ (Where b = breadth of rectangle which is equal to 19 as side of square)

Hence, area of rectangle will be = 2(361) = 722

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

area of square = 16 = length of rectangle

Hence, area of rectangle = (16)(5) = 80

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

As we know that area of a square is directly proportional to square of its side

Hence, when initial area is proportional to $r^{2}$

new area will be proportional to $1.44r^{2}$

So area is increased by 44%

**6)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Perimeter of wheel = $\pi \times d$ (where d is the diameter of the circle) = $\frac{22}{7} \times 343 = 1078$

Hence wheel has to make $\frac{10780}{1078}$ = 10 revolutions to cover the given distance.

**7)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Area of rectangle = 224 sq.m.

So side of square = 224

Diagonal of square= $224\sqrt2$

**8)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Letâ€™s say length is l and breadth is b so area will be lb

new length will be 1.25l and breadth will be 1.10l so new area will be 1.32lb

percentage increase in area will be = 32%

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The required ratio is 2*$\pi$*r : 4*r = $\pi$:2

**10)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Circumference of circle = 2(l+b) = 2(14+8) = 44

2*22/7*r = 44

r = 7

**11)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The perimeter of the square = 20. So, the side is 20/4 = 5 metres. The circumference of the circle is 2 x $ \pi$ x r = 2 x 3.14 x 2.5 = 15.70

**12)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Let the side be 10 cm.

So, area = 100 $cm^2$

New area = 100 + 69 = 169 $cm^2$

So, new side length = $\sqrt{169}$ = 13 cm

So, percentage increase in the side of the square = (13 – 10)/10 * 100 = 30%

**13)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Let the side of the square, length of the rectangle and breadth of the rectangle be s, l and b respectively.

$s^2$ = 441 => s = 21 cm

l = 21 + 4 = 25 cm

b = 21 – 6 = 15 cm

Area of the rectangle = 25 * 15 = 375 sq cm.

**14)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Let the original length of the rectangle be L.

Original area = L*3 = 3L

New length = L+2

New breadth = 5 cm

New area = 5*(L+2)

So, 5L + 10 – 3L = 18 => 2L = 8 => L = 4 cm

So, the new length of the rectangle is 4+2 = 6 cm

**15)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Distance covered in one revolution of the wheel = Circumference of the wheel = $\pi$ * diameter = 22/7 * 49 = 154 m

So, number of revolutions required to cover 3200 m = 3200/154 = 21 approx.
