**10) Answer (C)**

Diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular to each other.

Lines perpendicular to each other have the product of their slopes = -1

Slope of the line 2x+3y-10=0 is $-(\frac{a}{b})$

Slope = $\frac{-2}{3}$

Then slope of the other line is $ \frac{3}{2}$.

$\therefore$ required equation is $\frac{3}{2}(x-1)=(y-3)$

$3x-3=2y-6$

$ 3x-2y+3=0$

**11) Answer (B)**

Equation of line = $y=3x$

(A) : (0,1)

=> L.H.S. = $1\neq$ R.H.S. = $3(0)=0$

(B) : (0,0)

=> L.H.S. = $0=$ R.H.S. = $3(0)=0$

=> Ans – (B)

**12) Answer (C)**

Now, OA = 8 units and OB = 15 units

=> $(AB)^2=(OA)^2+(OB)^2$

=> $(AB)^2=(8)^2+(15)^2$

=> $(AB)^2=64+225=289$

=> $AB=\sqrt{289}=17$ units

=> Ans – (C)

**13) Answer (B)**

We can see that (-5, -2) is 3 units away from y = 1

X coordinate of the point will remain unchanged while y axis will change

$\Rightarrow$ $1 = \frac{-2 + b}{2}$

$\Rightarrow$ $2 = -2 + b$

$\Rightarrow$ $b = 4$

Alternatively from graph we can see the reflection of point as well. (Answer :B)

**14) Answer (B)**

Centroid = $(\frac{x_{1}+x_{2}+x_{3}}{3} , \frac{y_{1}+y_{2}+y_{3}}{3})$

$(1, 3)$ = $(\frac{1 + 3 + b}{3} , \frac{6 + a + 1}{3})$

$\Rightarrow$ $1 = \frac{1 + 3 + b}{3}$

$\Rightarrow$ $b + 4 = 3$

$\Rightarrow$ $b = -1$

Also, we know that $3 = \frac{6 + a + 1}{3}$

$\Rightarrow$ $a + 7 = 9$

$\Rightarrow$ $a = 2$

Therefore, a+b = 2 -1 = 1.

Hence, option B is the right answer.

**15) Answer (D)**

Since the given point (6, -3) lies on the line y = -3 itself, the point and its reflection will coincide.

Therefore, the reflection of point = (6, -3).

Hence, option D is the right answer.

**16) Answer (D)**

The graph represented by the lines : $y=0$, $x+6=0$ and $2x-3y=6$ is

Now, area of $\triangle$ ABC with base $BC=9$ units and height $AB=6$ units

= $\frac{1}{2}bh$

= $\frac{1}{2}\times9\times6=27$ sq. units

=> Ans – (D)

**17) Answer (C)**

The given line will cut the x-axis at a point where the y co-ordinate will be equal to zero.

$\Rightarrow$ 3x + 4*0 = 24.

$\Rightarrow$ x = 8.

So, the point of intersection on the x axis will be (8, 0).

Similarly, the line will cut y-axis at a point where the x co-ordinate will be equal to zero.

$\Rightarrow$ 3*0 + 4y = 24.

$\Rightarrow$ y = 6.

So, the point of interaction on the y axis will be (0, 6)

We can see that $\triangleOAB$ is right-angled at O.

So, the area of $\triangleOAB$ = $\frac{1}{2} * OA * OB$

= $\frac{1}{2} * 6 * 8$

= 24 sq units.

Therefore, option C is the right answer.

**18) Answer (D)**

Let us assume the side of the original cube to be 2a units.

=> The surface area of the bigger cube = $6*(2a)^{2} = 24(a)^{2}$

When we cut the original cube to get 8 smaller cubes, each side will become half of its original length.

So, the side of smaller cube will be 2a/2 = a units in length.

Surface area of 1 smaller cube = $6*(a)^{2} = 6(a)^{2}$

Total surface area of 8 cubes combined = $8 * 6(a)^{2} = 48(a)^{2}$

So, the percentage change in the surface area = $\frac{48(a)^{2} – 24(a)^{2}}{24(a)^{2}} \times 100$ = 100 %.

Therefore, option D is the right answer.

**19) Answer (C)**

Centroid = ($\frac{x_1+x_2+x_3}{3}, \frac{y_1+y_2+y_3}{3}$) = ($\frac{-4-3+1}{3}, \frac{-2-5+1}{3}$) = (-2, -2)

So the answer is option C.

**20) Answer (C)**

Option A & B, represent Ellipse. ($\because$ general form of Ellipse is $\frac{x^2}{a^2}+\frac{y^2}{b^2} = 1$)

Option C represents Hyperbola. ($\because$ general form of Hyperbola is $\frac{x^2}{a^2}-\frac{y^2}{b^2} = 1$)

So the answer is option C.
