**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Ā AnswerĀ (C)**

Let length and breadth of rectangle initially be $10$ units

=> Area, $A=10\times10=100$ sq.units

Length is increased by 40%, => New length = $10+(\frac{40}{100}\times10)=14$ units

Similarly,Ā new breadth = $10+(\frac{70}{100}\times10)=17$ units

=> New area,Ā $A’=14\times17=238$ sq.units

$\therefore$ % increase in area = $\frac{(238-100)}{100}\times100=138\%$

=> Ans – (C)

**2)Ā AnswerĀ (A)**

Let side of square = $s$ cm

Perimeter of square = $4 \times s = 40$

=> $s = \frac{40}{4} = 10$ cm

$\therefore$ Area of square = $(s)^2$

= $(10)^2 = 100 cm^2$

=> Ans – (A)

**3)Ā AnswerĀ (A)**

Let the radius of circle = $r$ cm

Circumference of circle = $2 \pi r = 88$

=> $2 \times \frac{22}{7} \times r = 88$

=> $r = \frac{88 \times 7}{44} = 14$ cm

$\therefore$ Area of circle = $\pi r^2$

= $\frac{22}{7} \times (14)^2$

= $22 \times 2 \times 14 = 616 cm^2$

=> Ans – (A)

**4)Ā AnswerĀ (C)**

Let radius of hemisphere = $r$ cm

Total surface area of hemisphere = $3 \pi r^2 = 166.32$ ————(i)

Multiplying equationĀ (i) by $\frac{2}{3}$

=> $\frac{2}{3} \times 3 \pi r^2 = \frac{2}{3} \times 166.32$

=> Curved Surface area of hemisphere =Ā $2 \pi r^2 = 2 \times 55.44 = 110.88 cm^2$

=> Ans – (C)

**5)Ā AnswerĀ (B)**

As we know area of triangle, with centroid as one of the vertices and remaining 2 triangle vertices, is $\frac{1}{3}$rd of the area of whole triangle.

Hence area will be $\frac{48}{3}$ = 16

**6)Ā AnswerĀ (D)**

NOTE :- The ratio of area of two triangles on same base is equal to the ratio of two corresponding sides of the two triangles.

Given : QR = 4.5 cm and SR = 1.5 cm

=> QS = QR – SR = 4.5-1.5 = 3 cm

Since, the two triangles PQS and PSR have same base PS

=> $\frac{area(\triangle PQS)}{area(\triangle PSR)} = \frac{QS}{SR}$

= $\frac{3}{1.5}$ = 2 : 1

**7)Ā AnswerĀ (A)**

The area of triangle formed by any two vertices and centroid is (1/3) times the area of ABC.

Also the median divides the triangle into two equal areas.

So, area of BDG = (1/6) times of ABC

= (1/6)*72

=12

**8)Ā AnswerĀ (C)**

Given āABC, G is the centroid and AD,BE, CF are three medians and the area of āAGE = 10

As we know the median divides the triangle into 6 triangles of equal area

Hence area of the quadrilateral BDGF = 2*āAGE = 2*10

area of the quadrilateral BDGF = 20

**9)Ā AnswerĀ (A)**

Medians of a triangle divides the triangle into 6 parts of equal areas.

Also,Ā ar($\triangle$ ABC) =Ā 156

=> ar($\triangle$ AFG) =Ā ar($\triangle$ FBG)Ā =Ā ar($\triangle$ BGD)Ā =Ā ar($\triangle$ DGC)Ā =Ā ar($\triangle$ CGE)Ā =Ā ar($\triangle$ EGA) = $\frac{156}{6}=26$Ā $cm^2$

=> ar(AFGE) =Ā ar($\triangle$ AFG) + ar($\triangle$ EAG)

= $26+26=52$ $cm^2$

$\therefore$Ā ar($\triangle$ FGE) = $\frac{1}{4}\times$Ā ar(AFGE)

= $\frac{52}{4}=13$ $cm^2$

=> Ans – (A)

**10)Ā AnswerĀ (D)**

GivenĀ : ā AOB = 120Ā° and AP = 6 cm and $\angle$ OAP = 90Ā°

To findĀ : ar($\triangle$ APB) = ?

SolutionĀ : $\angle$ AOP = $\frac{1}{2} \angle$ AOB = $\frac{120}{2}=60^\circ$

In $\triangle$ AOP,

=> $tan(\angle AOP)=\frac{AP}{OA}$

=> $tan(60^\circ)=\frac{6}{OA}$

=> $\sqrt3=\frac{6}{OA}$

=> $OA=\frac{6}{\sqrt3}=2\sqrt3$ cm

Thus, area of $\triangle$ AOP = $\frac{1}{2}\times(OA)\times(AP)$

$\frac{1}{2}\times(2\sqrt3)\times(6)=6\sqrt3$ $cm^2$ ————-(i)

Now, in $\triangle$ AOM

=> $sin(\angle AOM)=\frac{AM}{OA}$

=> $sin(60^\circ)=\frac{AM}{2\sqrt3}$

=> $\frac{\sqrt3}{2}=\frac{AM}{2\sqrt3}$

=> $AM=3$ cm

Similarly, $OM = \sqrt3$ cm

Thus, area of $\triangle$ AOM = $\frac{1}{2}\times(OM)\times(AM)$

$\frac{1}{2}\times(\sqrt3)\times(3)=1.5\sqrt3$ $cm^2$ ————-(ii)

=> $ar(\triangle AMP)=ar(\triangle AOP)-ar(\triangle AOM)$

=Ā $6\sqrt3-1.5\sqrt3=4.5\sqrt3$ $cm^2$

$\therefore$ $ar(\triangle APB)=2ar(\triangle AMP)$

= $2\times4.5\sqrt3=9\sqrt3$ $cm^2$

=> Ans – (D)
