**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (E)**

Area of the rhombus =$\frac{1}{2}*12*14 = 84$

**2) Answer (D)**

Let the breadth of the rectangle be x.

Length = 1.5x

2(x+1.5x) = 23+11+16 = 50

2.5x = 25

x = 10

Length = 1.5*10 = 15

**3) Answer (C)**

Volume of cylindrical tank = $\pi r^2 h$ = $\frac{22}{7}* 7/2 * 7/2 * 10$ =385 $m^3$.

Hence, time taken =385/2 minutes = 192.5 minutes = 3 hours 12.5 mins

**4) Answer (D)**

Let the base and height be b and h respectively. Hence, the original area is = 1/2*b*h. After changing the base and height, area= 1/2 * (0.9b) * (1.1h) = 0.99 (1/2*b*h) = 198 sq-cm

Hence, (1/2*b*h) = 198/0.99 = 200 sq-cm

**5) Answer (B)**

Total surface area of solid hemisphere =$3\pi r^2 = 3\frac{22}{7}*7*7$ = 462

**6) Answer (C)**

Since Angle XEA and XFC are corresponding angles,

Angle XEA = Angle XFC = 100 degrees

Angle XFC + Angle XFD = 180 degrees

Angle XFD = 180-100 = 80 degrees

**7) Answer (A)**

Since the sum of exterior angles on the same side of the transversal is equal to 180 degrees,

Angle XEB + Angle DFY = 180 degrees

110 + Angle DFY = 180

Angle DFY = 180-110 = 70 degrees

**8) Answer (B)**

Consider the hexagon ABCDEF as shown.Join BF, CF and CE.

The hexagon is divided into 4 triangles.

Sum of angles of hexagon = 180*4 = 720 degrees.

**9) Answer (D)**

Since the sum of the exterior angles of the triangles is 360 degrees,

Exterior Angle to A = 360-(120+150) = 90 degrees.

**10) Answer (A)**

Area of circle = $\pi r^2$ and circumference is $2 \pi r$.

Thus, the ratio is $\frac{r}{2}$

Now, the side of the square will be equal to the diameter of the circle.

=> Diameter = 2r = 8.

=> r/2 = 2

**11) Answer (B)**

4.5 x l = 5 x 5

So, l = 25/4.5 = 5.56 metres.

**12) Answer (C)**

The diagonal of a square is $ \sqrt {2}$ times the side. Let us assume that ‘a’ is length of side of the square.

$\sqrt{2}a$ = 52

$\Rightarrow$ a = $26\sqrt{2}$

So, area = $ a ^{2}$ = $(26\sqrt{2})^{2}$ = 1352 (Answer :C)

**13) Answer (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

**14) Answer (C)**

circumference of circle = 2πR = 35.2

R is the radius if circle

R= 5.6 cm

Area of circle = π$(R)^2$ = 3.14 × $(5.6)^2$ = 98.56 sq cm

**15) Answer (A)**

The area of rectangle = l x b = l x $ \frac {l}{3} = \frac{l^{2}}{3}$

The area of square = $ l ^ {2}$

So, the req. ratio = $ l ^ {2}$ : $\frac{l^{2}}{3}$ = 3:1
