d) tanA

Cotθ = $\frac{adj}{opp}$ = 40/9

Cosecθ = $\frac{hyp}{opp}$ = 41/9  ($\because 40^2+9^2 = 41^2$)

So the answer is option B.

If $r$ is the inradius and $r_1,r_2,r_3$ are the radii of excircles, then area of triangle = $\sqrt{rr_1r_2r_3} = \sqrt{2*4*8*4} = \sqrt{256} = 16$

So the answer is option A.

$1+Tan^2A$ = $Sec^2A$   ($\because Sec^2A-Tan^2A = 1$)

or

$1+Tan^2A$ = $1+\frac{Sin^2A}{Cos^2A}$ = $\frac{Cos^2A+Sin^2A}{Cos^2A}$ = $\frac{1}{Cos^2A}$ = $Sec^2A$

So the answer is option C.

Sinθ = $\frac{opp}{hyp}$ = 21/29

Cosθ = $\frac{adj}{hyp}$ = 20/29 ($\because 20^2+21^2 = 29^2$)

secθ = 29/20

So the answer is option D.

Cotθ = $\frac{adj}{opp}$ = 15/8

Cosθ = $\frac{adj}{hyp}$ = 15/17  ($\because 15^2+8^2 = 17^2$)

cosθ-secθ = 15/17 – 17/15 = (225-289)/(255) = -64/255

So the answer is option A.

From  the diagram, Tanθ = $\frac{70\sqrt3}{70} = \sqrt3$ = Tan60°

==> θ = 60°

So the answer is option B.

We Know That, $(sec^2(\theta)-tan^2(\theta)) = 1$

Applying square on both sides,

$(sec^2(\theta)-tan^2(\theta))^2 = 1$

$[sec\theta-tan\theta][sec\theta+tan\theta] = 1$

$[sec\theta-tan\theta][2] = 1$

$[sec\theta-tan\theta] = 1/2$

So the answer is option A.

$cot\theta = 12/5$

from the diagram,

$Cosec\theta$ = $\frac{ hypotenuse}{ opposite side} = \frac{13}{5}$

So the answer is option B.

$\frac{1-cos\frac{\theta}{2}}{sin\frac{\theta}{2}}$

= $\frac{2sin^2\frac{\theta}{4}}{2sin\frac{\theta}{4}cos\frac{\theta}{4}}$

= $\frac{sin\frac{\theta}{4}}{cos\frac{\theta}{4}}$

= $tan\frac{\theta}{4}$

So the answer is option A.

Given, $\tan A = \frac{5}{12}$.
Also, A is an cute angle.
We can consider a right triangle with the legs 5x and 12x; and
Hypotenuse = $\sqrt{(5x)^2 + (12x)^2}$ = 13x.

$\cosec A = \frac{13}{5} = 2.6$

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

Expression : tan 330° = x

= $tan(360-30)$

= $-tan(30)$

= $\frac{-1}{\sqrt{3}}$

=> Ans – (A)

In rectangle, all angles are 90° and in a parallelogram, adjacent angles are supplementary while in a cyclic quadrilateral only one pair of opposite angles is supplementary.

=> Ans – (C)

Expression : $\sqrt{1-cos^2A}$

$\because (sin^2A+cos^2A=1)$

= $\sqrt{sin^2A}=sinA$

=> Ans – (B)

Expression : $\frac{\sqrt{sec^2A-1}}{secA}$

$\because$ $(sec^2A-tan^2A=1)$

= $\frac{\sqrt{tan^2A}}{secA} = \frac{tanA}{secA}$

= $(\frac{sinA}{cosA})\div(\frac{1}{cosA})$

= $(\frac{sinA}{cosA})\times(cosA) = sinA$

=> Ans – (C)

Expression : $(sinA-2sin^3A)/(2cos^3A-cosA)$

= $\frac{sinA}{cosA} \times \frac{1-2sin^2A}{2cos^2A-1}$

$\because$ $(sin^2A+cos^2A=1)$

= $tanA \times \frac{(sin^2A+cos^2A)-2sin^2A}{2cos^2A-(sin^2A+cos^2A)}$

= $tanA \times \frac{cos^2A-sin^2A}{cos^2A-sin^2A}$

= $tanA \times 1 = tanA$

=> Ans – (D)
