Answers & Solutions:

1) Answer (D)

Side = $\sqrt{1444}$ = 38
Breadth of rectangle = $\frac{1}{4}$th of 38 = 9.5
Length = thrice of breadth = 28.5
Area of rectangle =  9.5 x 28.5 = 270.75
Difference = 1173.25 m2

2) Answer (C)

$S^{2} = pi * r^{2}$. So, s/r = $\sqrt \pi$

3) Answer (D)

The data provided in question is insufficient for calculation.

Hence, we cannot calculate the required area of the triangle.

4) Answer (E)

Let’s assume that the side of the square is s.

Now, Perimeter 4s=224, hence, s=56.

Area of triangle = .5(area of square) = .5*(562) = 1568 which is not any of the option.

5) Answer (C)

Area of the circle =$\pi d^2/4$ = 616
d = 28
The length of the rectangle is equal to diameter which is 28 and breadth is equal to radius which is 114
Area = 28*14 = 392

6) Answer (B)

area of square = $(side)^2$ = 225

Side of square = 15 cm

It is given that area of square is thrice area of rectangle ,so

225 = 3 x L x B where L and B are length and breadth of rectangle.

Given that length of rectangle is 15 cm so B = 5 cm

Side of square – Breadth of rectangle = 15 -5 =10 cm

7) Answer (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 + $\barwedge(R)^2H$ = $\barwedge$RH(2+R)

it is given that CurvedSurfaceArea/TotalSurfaceArea = 4/5

1232/(616(2+R)) = 4/5

R = 0.5 cm

H = 392 cm

8) Answer (C)

Breadth = b meters
Length = (b+6) meters

Perimeter = 4b+12 = 84, i.e. b = 18
b = 18, L = 24
Diagonal = 30 (3:4:5 Pythagoras triplet)

Triangle – base = 30, height = 24
Area = 12*30 = 360 square meters

9) Answer (E)

Let the area of rectangle and circle be $A$.
Let the length of the rectangle be $l$ and breadth be $b$.
Given $2\times\left(l + b \right) = 42$
$b=8.5$
$\left(l + 8.5 \right) = 21$
$l=12.5$.
Area of Circle=Area of Rectangle= $l \times b$=$12.5\times 5.5 = 68.75$
Hence Option E is the correct answer.

10) Answer (C)

Let the area of rectangle and circle be $A$.
Let the length of the rectangle be $l$ and breadth be $b$.
Given $2\times\left(l + b \right) = 35$
$b=5.5$
$\left(l + 5.5 \right) = 17.5$
$l=12$.
Area of Circle=Area of Rectangle= $l \times b$=$12\times 5.5 = 66$
Hence Option C is the correct answer.
