**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let the length of radius be ‘r’.

From the above diagram,

$x^2+r^2=6^2\ $….(i)

$\left(10-x\right)^2+r^2=8^2\ $—-(ii)

Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get:

x=3.6 => $r^2=36-\left(3.6\right)^2$ ==> $r^2=36-\left(3.6\right)^2\ =23.04$.

Area of circle = $\pi\ r^2=23.04\pi\ $

Area of rhombus= 1/2*d1*d2=1/2*12*16=96.

.’. Ratio of areas = 23.04$\pi\ $/96=$\frac{6\pi}{25}$

**2) Answer (C)**

Consider the below figure

Given EF = 5 cm

According to the midpoint theorem, DB = 2*EF

DB = 10 cm

Given perimeter = 52 cm

==> DC = 52/4 = 13 cm

And DO = 5 cm

Since, $DC^2=CO^2+DO^2$

==> CO = 12 cm

Area of rhombus ABCD = 4*Area of triangle DOC = $4\cdot\frac{1}{2}\cdot5\cdot12\ =\ 120\ cm^2$

**3) Answer (A)**

Let us draw the diagram first,

Let us assume that length of SQ and PR be ‘$a$’ and ‘$b$’ units respectively.

Therefore the area of $\triangle$OUR = $\dfrac{\text{Area of triangle OQR}}{2}$ = $\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{1}{2}*\dfrac{a}{2}*\dfrac{b}{2}$ = $\dfrac{ab}{16}$

the area of $\triangle$SQR = $\dfrac{1}{2} * SQ * OR$ = $\dfrac{1}{2} * a * \dfrac{b}{2} = \dfrac{a*b}{4}$

From the symmetry we can see that Area of $\triangle$VUR = $\dfrac{1}{2}$*$\triangle$ORQ = $\dfrac{1}{4}$*$\triangle$SQR

Hence the area of $\triangle$VUR = $\dfrac{a*b}{16}$

Area of rhombus OURV = 2*area of $\triangle$OUR = $\dfrac{a*b}{8}$

Area of $\triangle$OVU = $\dfrac{a*b}{8} – \dfrac{a*b}{16}$ = $\dfrac{a*b}{16}$

Since M and N are the mid points of OV and OU hence, Area of $\triangle$OMN = $\dfrac{1}{4}$*$\triangle$OVU = $\dfrac{a*b}{64}$

Hence, the area of the pentagon MNURV = Area of rhombus OURV – Area of triangle OMN = $\dfrac{a*b}{8}$-$\dfrac{a*b}{64}$ = $\dfrac{7ab}{64}$.

We can see that quadrilateral WTNM are trapezium.

Height of the trapezium WTNM = $\dfrac{b}{4}$ + $\dfrac{b}{8}$ = $\dfrac{3b}{8}$

Therefore, the area of trapezium WTNM = $\dfrac{1}{2}*(WT + MN)*\dfrac{3b}{8}$ = $\dfrac{1}{2}*(\dfrac{a}{2} + \dfrac{a}{4})*\dfrac{3b}{8}$ = $\dfrac{9ab}{64}$

Hence, the ratio of the area of pentagon MNURV to area of quadrilateral WTNM = $\dfrac{7ab}{64}$ : $\dfrac{9ab}{64}$ = $7 : 9$

Thus, option A is the correct answer.

**4) Answer (E)**

It is given that the length of the diagonals are in 3:4. Let ‘3x’, and ‘4x’ be the lengths of semi-diagonals as shown in the figure. We know that diagonals of a rhombus intersect each other perpendicularly.

In right angle triangle AOB,

$AB^2=AO^2+BO^2$

$\Rightarrow$ $AB= \sqrt{AO^2+BO^2}$

$\Rightarrow$ $AB= \sqrt{(3x)^2+(4x)^2}$

$\Rightarrow$ $15= 5x$

$\Rightarrow$ $x= 3$cm.

Therefore, we can say that the length of diagonals = 6x and 8x or 18 and 24 cm.

Hence, the area of the rhombus = $\dfrac{1}{2}*18*24$ = 216 cm$^2$. Therefore, option E is the correct answer.

**5) Answer (C)**

Consider following diagram –

Side of rhombus = 32/4 = 8 cm

In a rhombus adjacent angles are supplementary.

Since angle QRS = 120°, angle PSR = 60°

Thus, triangle PSR is an equilateral triangle.

So area of triangle PSR = $ \frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}*8^2$ = 16*$\sqrt{3}$

Area of rhombus = 2 * area of triangle PSR = 32*$\sqrt{3}$ sq.cm.

Hence, option C is the correct choice.

**6) Answer (C)**

Let ABCD be the given rectangle and ANCO be the rhombus with the maximum area enclosed.

50 – x is the side of the rhombus.

In triangle, ADO

$(50-x)^2 = 40^2 + x^2$

$100x = 900$

$ x = 9$

Therefore, side of the rhombus = 50 – 9 = 41

Perimeter = 41 * 4 = 164

Option C

**7) Answer: 336**

Consider the below figure

Given EF = 7 cm

According to the midpoint theorem, DB = 2*EF

DB = 14 cm

Given perimeter = 100 cm

==> DC = 100/4 = 25 cm

And DO = 7 cm

Since, $DC^2 = CO^2 + DO^2$

==> CO = 24 cm

Area of rhombus ABCD = 4*Area of triangle DOC = $4* \frac{1}{2} * 7*24$ = 336 cm^2

**8) Answer (D)**

The cow can graze the whole area of a circle of radius 20m if the barn wasn’t there. Because the barn is there it can graze 300 degrees angle out of 360 degrees because 60 degrees is cut by the barn at the vertex A. This means it can graze $\frac{5}{6}$th of the area of the circle of radius 20m. This is shown by the grey area of the circle.

This area = $\frac{5}{6}\times\pi\times20^2=\frac{1000\pi}{3}$.

It can also graze two sectors of circles centered at B and D of radius 10m and angle 60 degrees. These are shown by the red areas of the circle.

This area = $2\times(\frac{1}{6}\times\pi\times10^2)=\frac{100\pi}{3}$

Total area = $\frac{1000\pi}{3}+\frac{100\pi}{3}=\frac{1100\pi}{3}$

**9) Answer (B)**

In triangle AOH

tan 60 = r / x ==> x = $r / \sqrt3$

Similarly in triangle COH

tan 60 = y / r ==> y = r $\sqrt3$

==> x+y = side of the rhombus = 14

==> $r / \sqrt3$ + r $\sqrt3$ = 14 ==> r = 7$\sqrt3$/2

Therefore area of the circle = pi * $r^{2}$ = $\frac{22}{7} * \frac{7\sqrt{3}}{2}*\frac{7\sqrt{3}}{2}$ = 115.5

So the correct option to choose is B – 115.5 $cm^{2}$

**10) Answer (B)**

Let the length of the two diagonals of the rhombus be 2X and 2Y.

So, each side of the rhombus has length $\sqrt{X^2+Y^2}$.

Area of the square with side $\sqrt{X^2+Y^2}$. is $X^2+Y^2$.

Area of the Rhombus = $1/2 * 2X * 2Y $

Hence we have $2XY = .96 *({X^2+Y^2})$.

=> $200 XY = 96X^2 + 96Y^2$

=> $12X^2 – 25XY + 12X^2$ = 0

=> $(3X – 4Y)(4X – 3Y) = 0$

=> X:Y = 3:4 or 4:3

So,the required answer is 4:3
