Answers & Solutions:

1) Answer (D)

radius OA = 6 and OB = 10

Now, in $\triangle$OAB right angle at A

AB = $\sqrt{(OB)^2 – (OA)^2}$

= $\sqrt{100-36} = \sqrt{64}$

= 8 cm

2) Answer (C)

let’s say n be a number whose perfect square lie between 120 and 300
hence 120<$n^{2}$<300
or $121\leq n^{2} \leq289$
or $11\leq n^{2} \leq17$

3) Answer (B)

since we know volume will remain same while melting
$\pi r_{1}^{2}h= \frac{4}{3}\pi r_{2}^{3}$
where $r_{1}$ is radius of cylinderical wire and $r_{2}$ is radius of sphere and h is length of wire
putting values we will get $r_{2}$ = 3 cm.

4) Answer (D)

As we know $(a-b)^{2}$ = $a^{2} + b^{2} – 2ab$
We assume that first number is a and second number is b hence ab = 45
and a – b = 4
after putiing values we will get $a^{2} + b^{2}$ = 106

5) Answer (B)

Given question can be written as $9+5+6\sqrt{5}$
or it will be square of $3+\sqrt{5}$

6) Answer (C)

Area of equilateral triangle is $\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4} a^{2}$ where a is side of triangle
which is equals to $121{\sqrt{3}}$
or a = 22 and whole length of wire will be 66
from here when it is bend to make a circle, circumference will be $2\pi r$ = 66
r = 10.5
hence area of circle will be $\pi r^{2}$ = 346.5

7) Answer (A)

0.09 = $\frac{9}{100}$
$\sqrt{\frac{9}{100}} = \frac{3}{10}$ = 0.3

8) Answer (B)

9) Answer (B)

10) 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 :

11) Answer (A)

12) Answer (D)

Let the radius of the sphere be ‘r’
Hence $4\pi r^2$ = $8\pi$
=> r = $\sqrt{2}$
Volume of the cube = $\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3$ = $\frac{4}{3}\pi \sqrt{2}^3$ = $\frac{8\sqrt{2}}{3}\pi$

13) Answer (C)

Volume of water in flask = $\frac{\pi r^2 h}{3}$ (where h is height of water in conical flask)
Volume of water in cylinder = $\pi m^2r^2 h_1$ (where h_1 is height of water in cylinderical flask)
Hence now $\frac{\pi r^2 h}{3}$ = $\pi m^2r^2 h_1$
or $h_1 = \frac{h}{3m^2}$

14) Answer (C)

$\angle A = 90^o$
$\angle C = 55^o$
$\angle B$ will be $180 – (90+55) = 35^o$
As AD is perpendicular to BC Hence $\angle BAD=180-(90+35)=55^o$

15) Answer (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

16) 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 $\frac{AP}{PD} = \frac{BP}{PC}$

17) 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 $180-(50+20) = 110^o$

18) Answer (A)

It is property of equilateral triangle that length of all its altitutes are equal.

19) 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.

20) Answer (A)

In $\triangle$ BDC,

=> $y+(180^\circ-2x+x)+50^\circ=180^\circ$

=> $y-x+50^\circ=0$

=> $y-x=-50^\circ$

In $\triangle$ ABC,

=> $2y+(180^\circ-2x)+\angle A=180^\circ$

=> $2(y-x)+\angle A=0$

=> $2(-50^\circ)+\angle A=0$

=> $\angle A=100^\circ$

=> Ans – (A)
