**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Area of square is $121 = (l)^2$ (where $l$ is length of side)

So length will be = 11

Total length of wire will be = 44

So when it forms a circle, perimeter will be equal to 44

Hence $2\pi r$ = 44

or $r$ = 7

**2) Answer (C)**

It is given that AC = BC, also $\triangle$ PTB and $\triangle$ PAC are similar, we have :

$\frac{CA}{CP}=\frac{BT}{BP}$ —————-(i)

Also, we have $\angle$ PBC = $\angle$ BTC ($\because$ $\angle$ PBC = $\angle$ BAC = $\angle$ BTC) and $\angle$ PCB = $\angle$ BCT

=> $\triangle$ PBC $\sim$ $\triangle$ BTC

Thus, $\frac{CB}{BP}=\frac{CT}{BT}$

=> $\frac{BT}{BP}=\frac{CT}{CB}$ ————–(ii)

From equations (i) and (ii), we get :

$\frac{CA}{CP}=\frac{CT}{CB}$

=> Ans – (C)

**3) Answer (A)**

As we know that a cyclic quadrilateral can be inscribed into a circle, Hence in triangle APB and in triangle CPD.

$\angle PAB = \angle PDC$ (same sector angles)

$\angle PCD = \angle PBA$ (same sector angles)

Hence third angle will also be equal and they will be similar triangles.

So $\frac{AP}{PD} = \frac{BP}{PC}$

**4) Answer (C)**

Angle ABD will be equal to angle ACD = $20^o$ (same sector angles)

Angle BEC = $130^o$ so angle AED = $130^o$ (concurrent angles)

Now angle BEA will be $\frac{360-130-130}{2} = 50^o$

So angle EDC will be $180-(50+20) = 110^o$

**5) Answer (B)**

let angle CDA = x

since AB is parallel to CD, angle ACD=30 and angle CAD=30

in triangle ACD,

sum of all three angles = 180

30 + 30 + x = 180

x = 120

so the answer is option B.

**6) Answer (D)**

It is given that OD = BC and OD = OB (radii of circle)

=> OB = BC

=> $\angle$ BCO = $\angle$ BOC = $20^\circ$ (Angle opposite to equal sides are equal)

Then, $\angle$ OBC = $180^\circ-(\angle BCO +\angle BOC)$

=> $\angle$ OBC = $180^\circ-20^\circ-20^\circ=140^\circ$

Also, $\angle$ OBA + $\angle$ OBC = $180^\circ$ (Linear pair)

=> $\angle$ OBA = $\angle$ OAB = $180^\circ-140^\circ=40^\circ$

Now, $\angle$ AOB = $180^\circ-(\angle OAB +\angle OBA)$

=> $\angle$ AOB = $180^\circ-40^\circ-40^\circ=100^\circ$

$\therefore$ $\angle$ AOD = $180^\circ-(\angle AOB +\angle BOC)$ (Linear pair)

= $180^\circ-100^\circ-20^\circ=60^\circ$

=> Ans – (D)

**7) Answer (B)**

Radius of the circle = 1 unit, => Diameter = BD = 2 units

Thus, side of square = AB = $\sqrt2$ units

Radius of a semi-circle = $\frac{AB}{2}=\frac{\sqrt2}{2}=\frac{1}{\sqrt2}$

=> Area of 4 semi-circles = $2\pi r^2$

= $2\pi (\frac{1}{\sqrt2})^2=\pi$ sq. units ————(i)

Area bounded by region = Area of circle – Area of square

= $\pi(1)^2-(\sqrt2)^2=(\pi-2)$ sq. units —————(ii)

$\therefore$ Required area bounded by 4 semi circles = (i) – (ii)

= $\pi – (\pi-2) = 2$ sq. units

=> Ans – (B)

**8) Answer (D)**

The biggest chord lying outside the inner circle must be tangential to it.

By pytagoras theorem,

$x = \sqrt{3^2 – 1^2} = \sqrt{9-1} = \sqrt{8} = 2 \sqrt{2}$

The length of the chord is 2x = $4 \sqrt{2}$

Hence Option D is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (C)**

Length of the arc = (angle subtended by the arc/360)*circumference of the circle = $\frac{48}{360}*2* \pi * 7$ = 5.867 cm.

**10) Answer (C)**

The information given in the question can be represented as below

1/2(length of the chord) = $\sqrt(5^2 – 4^2)$

==> Length of the chord = 2*3 = 6cm

**11) Answer (C)**

The given triangle is a right angled triangle.

The length of the hypotenuse is 13 cm.

In a right angled triangle the length of the circumradius is half the length of the hypotenuse.

So, circumradius = 13/2 = 6.5 cm

Area of the circumcircle = $3.14*(6.5)^2=132.665$ $cm^2$

**12) Answer (C)**

Here, the radius of the circle is the hypotenuse of the triangle with 4m,3m as its base and height.

Radius = $\sqrt{4^{2}+3^{2}}$

Radius =$5 m$

**13) Answer (B)**

Area of sector of a circle = $\frac{x}{360}*\pi *r^{2}$

Where x is the angle subtended at the centre and r is the radius of the circle

Area =$\frac{36}{360}*\pi *7^{2}$ = 15.4 sq.cm

**14) Answer (D)**

Area of the square form is 81 sq-cm . Hence , the side of the square would be 9 cm .

Length of the wire is (9 x 4) cm = 36 cm . Let $r$ be the radius of the semicircle thus formed .

When the wire is bent into semicircular shape , $\pi r + 2r = 36$

$\implies r = \frac{36}{\frac{22}{7}+2} = \frac{36}{\frac{36}{7}} = 7$ cm

Therefore , Area of the semicircle = $\frac{\frac{22}{7}\times7\times7}{2}$ = $77$ sq-cm

Hence , the correct Option is D

**15) Answer (C)**

Area of the triangle , $A$ = $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}a^2$ = $121\sqrt{3}$

$\implies a = 22\text{ cm}$

Length of wire, $L$ = $(3\times a)\text{ cm}$ = $66\text{ cm}$

Let radius of the circle be $r$

By using the relation,

$2\pi r = 66$

$\implies r = \frac{66\times 7}{2\times 22} = 10.5 \text{ cm}$

$\implies \text{ Area} = \pi \times 10.5^2 = 346.5 \text{ cm}^2$

Hence , the correct Option is C

**16) Answer (C)**

Let AB be the chord described as shown in the figure.

OA is the radius of the bigger circle and OC is the radius of the smaller circle.

We can observe that the triangle OAC is a right triangle.

Applying Pythagoras theorem we get,

$AC^2=13^2-5^2$

$=>AC=12$ cm

The length of the chord is twice the length of AC. So we get,

AB = 2*AC = 2*12 = 24 cm

**17) Answer (B)**

Let the radius of the circle be ‘r’

It is given that $\pi r^2=50$

$=>r^2=\frac{50}{3.14}$

$=>r^2\approx 16$

$r\approx 4$ cm

The perimeter will be

$=2*\pi*r$

$=2*3.14*4$

$\approx 25$ cm

**18) Answer (D)**

Let the radius of the circle formed be ‘r’

The length of the thread will be the circumference of the circle.

So we get,

$2\pi r=1256$

$=>2*3.14*r=1256$

$r=200$ cm

Thus the diameter will be 400 cm.

**19) Answer (D)**

Let the radius of the circles touching each other be $a$ cm and $b$ cm .

Then , $a$ + $b$ = $28$

$\implies b$ = $28 – a$

$\implies \pi a^2+ \pi b^2$ = $520\pi$

$\implies a^2+(28-a)^2$ = $520$

$\implies 2a^2 – 56a + 784 = 520$

$\implies 2a^2 – 56a + 264 = 0$

$\implies 2( a – 6 )( a – 22 ) = 0$

The radius of the circles can be $22$cm or $6$ cm

Therefore , the radius of the smaller circle is $6$ cm

Hence, correct option is D

**20) Answer (B)**

The circle is the circumcircle of the equilateral triangle.

Circumradius = $\frac{2}{3}*\frac{\sqrt3}{2}*3=\sqrt3$ cm

Area of the circle = $\pi*(\sqrt3)^2=3 \pi$ $cm^2$

Hence Option B.

**21) Answer (C)**

Let the length of the side be ‘l’

Area of square = $l^{2}$

Area of the circle = $\pi\times\frac{l^{2}}{4}$

Required ratio = $l^{2}$:$\pi\times\frac{l^{2}}{4}$

Required ratio =$4:\pi$

**22) Answer (C)**

The distance between centres of two circles = d

Radius of both circles = $r_1$ and $r_2$

For the circles to touch each other internally,

Here, AC = $r_1$ and BC = $r_2$

Distance between their centres = AB = d

Now, clearly AB = AC – BC

=> d = $r_1-r_2$

**23) Answer (B)**

NOTE :- Area of triangle = (semi perimeter) * (inradius)

AB = 6 cm , AC = 8 cm and $\angle$BAC = 90°

From $\triangle$ABC,

BC = $\sqrt{(AB)^2+(AC^2)}$

= $\sqrt{6^2+8^2} = \sqrt{36+64}$

= 10 cm

Semi perimeter of $\triangle$ABC = s

= $\frac{6+8+10}{2}$ = 12 cm

Area of $\triangle$ABC = $\frac{1}{2}$*AB*AC

= $\frac{1}{2}$*6*8 = 24 $cm^2$

=> Inradius = $\frac{\triangle}{s}$ = $\frac{24}{12}$

= 2 cm

**24) Answer (D)**

$\angle$BAC = 85°

$\angle$BCA = 75°

=> $\angle$ABC = 180°-(85°+75°) = 20°

Angle subtended by an arc at the centre is twice the angle subtended by it at any point on the circle.

=> $\angle$AOC = 2$\angle$ABC

=> $\angle$AOC = 40°

In $\triangle$OAC, OA = OC = radii

=> $\angle$OAC = $\angle$OCA

=> 2$\angle$OAC = 180°-40° = 140°

=> $\angle$OAC = $\frac{140^{\circ}}{2}$ = 70°

**25) Answer (B)**

Length of chord CD = $a$ and AB = $b$

Let radius of the circle be $r$

In $\triangle$OAB, by using Pythagoras theorem

=> $r^2 + r^2 = b^2$

=> $2r^2 = b^2$

=> $r = \frac{b}{\sqrt{2}}$ ——Eqn(1)

Now, in $\triangle$COD, OC = OD = radii

=> $\angle$OCD = $\angle$ODC = $\angle$COD = 60°

=> OCD is equilateral triangle

=> $a = r$ ———Eqn(2)

From eqns(1) & (2), we get :

$a = \frac{b}{\sqrt{2}}$

=> $b = \sqrt{2}a$
