**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

Let the radius of the sphere be ‘r’

Hence $4\pi r^2$ = $8\pi$

=> r = $\sqrt{2}$

Volume of the cube = $\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3$ = $\frac{4}{3}\pi \sqrt{2}^3$ = $\frac{8\sqrt{2}}{3}\pi$

**2) Answer (C)**

Let each side of the cube be $a$

One face of a cube is a square with perimeter 20 cm

=> 4 * $a$ = 20

=> $a$ = 5

Volume of cube = $a^3$

= $5^3$ = 125 $cm^3$

**3) Answer (A)**

Let the radius of sphere = $r$

Since, volume of sphere = surface area

=> $\frac{4}{3} \pi r^3 = 4 \pi r^2$

=> $r = 3$

=> Diameter = 2 * $r$ = 2*3 = 6 cm

**4) Answer (A)**

In right $\triangle$DAB, using Pythagoras theorem,

=> $BD = \sqrt{(AD)^2 + (AB)^2}$

=> $BD = \sqrt{12^2 + 9^2} = \sqrt{225}$

=> $BD = 15 cm$

Now, area of $\triangle$DAB = $\frac{1}{2} * 9 * 12 = 54 cm^2$

Area of $\triangle$BCD = $\sqrt{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)}$

where, $s = \frac{a+b+c}{2}$

=> Area of $\triangle$BCD = $\sqrt{21 * 6 * 7 * 8} = 84 cm^2$

=> Area of quad ABCD = area of $\triangle$DAB + area of $\triangle$BCD

= 54+84 = $138 cm^2$

Volume of prism = base area * height

=> 2070 = 138 * height

=> height = 15 cm

Lateral surface area of prism = perimeter of base * height

= (12 + 9 + 14 + 13) * 15 = 48 * 15

= 720 $cm^2$

**5) Answer (D)**

Let the radius and height of right circular cylinder be r and h respectively.

Let radius of sphere is R.

The radius of the cylinder and the diameter of the sphere are equal.

Therefore, r = 2R

The volumes of a right circular cylinder and a sphere are equal.

=> $\pi r^2h = \frac{4}{3} \pi R^3$

=> $3 r^2h = 4(\frac{r}{2})^3$

=> $6 r^2h = r^3$

=> $6h = r$

=> $\frac{h}{r} = \frac{1}{6}$

**6) Answer (D)**

Perimeter of base = $2 \pi r = a$

=> $r = \frac{a}{2 \pi}$

Volume of cylinder = $\pi r^2 h = V$

=> $\pi (\frac{a}{2 \pi})^2 h = V$

=> $a^2 h = 4 \pi V$

=> $h = \frac{4 \pi V}{a^2}$

**7) Answer (D)**

Let radius of cylinder be $r$ and height be $h$

=> $\frac{2 \pi rh}{2 \pi rh + 2 \pi r^2} = \frac{1}{2}$

=> $\frac{h}{h + r} = \frac{1}{2}$

=> $h = r$

Total surface area = $2 \pi rh + 2 \pi r^2 = 616$

=> $2 \pi r^2 + 2 \pi r^2 = 616$

=> $r^2 = \frac{154 * 7}{22}$

=> $r = 7 = h$

Now, volume of cylinder = $\pi r^2 h$

= $\frac{22}{7} * 7^2 * 7$

= $1078 cm^3$

**8) Answer (B)**

Let the radius of the cone be $r$ and height = 21

=> Perimeter of base = $2 \pi r = 8$

=> $r = \frac{4}{\pi}$

Volume of cone = $\frac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h$

= $\frac{1}{3} \pi (\frac{4}{\pi})^2 21$

= $\frac{112}{\pi} cm^3$

**9) Answer (A)**

Let original radius be $r$ and height be $h$

=> Original volume of cone = $\frac{1}{3} \pi r^2h$

New radius = $2r$ and new height = $2h$

=> New volume = $\frac{1}{3} \pi (4r^2) (2h)$

= $8 * \frac{1}{3} \pi r^2h$

=> New volume of cone = 8 times the previous one.

**10) Answer (A)**

Let the radii of two cones be $r_1 = x$ and $r_2 = 2x$

Let the heights of the two cones be $h_1$ and $h_2$

=> Ratio of volumes :

=> $\frac{\frac{1}{3} \pi r_1^2 h_1}{\frac{1}{3} \pi r_2^2 h_2} = \frac{2}{3}$

=> $\frac{x^2 h_1}{4x^2 h_2} = \frac{2}{3}$

=> $\frac{h_1}{h_2} = \frac{8}{3}$

=> Required ratio = 8 : 3

**11) Answer (C)**

We know that, Surface area of cylinder = π × d × L Where, d and L are diameter and length of the cylinder

Given, Diameter of the roller = 1.4 m & Length of the roller = 2 m

∴ Surface area of the roller = π × 1.4 × 2 = (22/7) × 1.4 × 2 = 8.8 m^{2
}∴ Area covered by 5 revolution = 5 × 8.8 m^{2 }= 44 m^{2}

**12) Answer (B)**

The distance of 11km is covered by the perimeter of tyre by 5000 revolutions.

Hence, $11\times1000\times100 = 5000\times$ *π*D

D = 70cm

r = 35cm

**13) Answer (C)**

volume of sphere = $\frac{4}{3}$ $\pi r^{3}$

volume of cylinder = $\pi r^{2}h$

given that radius and volume of both are same

so $\frac{4}{3}$ $\pi r^{3}$ = $\pi r^{2}h$

$\Rightarrow\frac{4}{3}r$ = $h$

so the answer is option C.

**14) Answer (A)**

Let radius of base of cylinder = $r$ cm and height = $h$ cm

Circumference of base = $2 \pi r = 44$

=> $2 \times \frac{22}{7} \times r = 44$

=> $r = 44 \times \frac{7}{44} = 7$ cm

Now, volume of cylinder = $\pi r^2 h = 2310$

=> $\frac{22}{7} \times (7)^2 \times h = 2310$

=> $22 \times 7 \times h = 2310$

=> $h = \frac{2310}{154} = 15$ cm

$\therefore$ Curved Surface area of cylinder = $2 \pi r h$

= $44 \times 15 = 660 cm^2$

**15) Answer (B)**

Let slant height of cone = $l$ cm and radius = 35 cm

Curved surface area of cone = $\pi r l = 10010$

=> $\frac{22}{7} \times 35 \times l = 10010$

=> $22 \times 5 \times l = 10010$

=> $l = \frac{10010}{110} = 91$

Let height of cone = $h$ cm

=> $(h)^2 = (l)^2 – (r)^2$

=> $(h)^2 = (91)^2 – (35)^2$

=> $(h)^2 = 8281 – 1225 = 7056$

=> $h = \sqrt{7056} = 84$

$\therefore$ Volume of cone = $\frac{1}{3} \times \pi r^2 h$

= $\frac{1}{3} \times \frac{22}{7} \times (35)^2 \times 84$

= $22 \times (35)^2 \times 4 = 107800 cm^3$
