Questions and Answers

Q 1 - The aggregate territory of 64 little square of a chessboard is 400 cm2. There is 3cm wide fringe around the chess board. What is the Length of every side of the chessboard?

A - 17 cm

B - 20 cm

C - 23 cm

D - 26 cm

Answer : D

Explanation

Length of each side of the chess board excluding path=√400=20cm.
Length of each side = (20+3+3) = 26cm

Q 2 - The aggregate expense of deck a room at rs.8.50 per square meter is Rs. 510. In the event that the length of the room is 8m, its expansiveness is:

A - 7.5 m

B - 8.5 m

C - 10.5 m

D - 12.5 m

Answer : A

Explanation

Area = total cost/rate =(510/8.50)m2= (510*2/17)m2= 60m2
Area =60m2, Length= 8m
Breadth =Area/ Length = 60/8m =7.5 m

Q 3 - The length of a rectangular plot is expanded by 25%. To keep its region unaltered, the width of the plot ought to be:

A - kept unaltered

B - expanded by 25%

C - expanded by 20%

D - Diminished by 20%

Answer : D

Explanation

Let the length be x meter and breadth be y mtr.
Then, its area = (xy) m2
New length = (125/100*x) m = (5x/4) m. let the new breadth be z meters.
Then, xy = 5x/4*z ⇒z= 4/5 y
Decrease in width = (y-4/5y) = y/5 mtr.
Decrease % in width = (y/5*1/y*100) % = 20%

Q 4 - The length of a rectangular plot is twice its expansiveness. On the off chance that the length of its corner to corner is 9√5m, the border of the perimeter of the rectangle is:

A - 27 m

B - 54 m

C - 81 m

D - none of these

Answer : B

Explanation

let breadth = x meter, Then, length = 2x meter
Diagonal = √ (2x) 2+ x2 =√5x2= √5x meter
∴ √5x= 9√5 ⇒9m ⇒Perimeter = 2(18+9) m =54m

Q 5 - The area of a square is 50 cm2. The area of the circle drawn on its diagonal is:

A - 25π cm2

B - 50π cm2

C - 75 πcm2

D - 100πcm2

Answer : A

Explanation

1/2*(diagonal) 2 =50 ⇒   (diagonal) 2=100 ⇒ diagonal =10cm
Radius of circle drawn on its diagonal= 5cm
Area of this circle = [π*(5) 2] cm2= 25πcm2

Q 6 - The area of an equilateral triangle is 4√3cm2. Each of its side measures.

A - 4√3cm/3

B - √3cm/4

C - 3 cm

D - 4cm

Answer : D

Explanation

Let each side be a cm. then, √3/4 a2= 4√3
 ⇒a2 =16 ⇒a= 4cm

Q 7 - Every side of a square is equivalent to every side of an equilateral triangle. The proportion of their ranges is:

A - 2:1

B - 2:√3

C - 4:3

D - 4:√3

Answer : D

Explanation

Let, side of square = side of equilateral triangle = x
Ratio of their areas = x2: √3x2/4 = 4:√3

Q 8 - The territory of the biggest triangle that can be engraved in a crescent of range r cm is:

A - 2r cm2

B - r2 cm2

C - 1/2 r2cm2

D - 2r2cm2

Answer : B

Explanation

Area of the largest triangle= (1/2*2r*r) cm2=r2 cm2.

Q 9 - Each side of an equilateral triangle is equivalent to the span of a circle whose region is 154 cm2. The range of the equilateral triangle is:

A - 7√3/4 cm2

B - 49√3/4 cm2

C - 35 cm2

D - 49cm2

Answer : B

Explanation

Let each side of the equilateral triangle be a cm and radius of the circle is r cm.  Then , a =r
πr2 =154 ⇒22/7 *r2=154⇒ r 2= (154*7/22) = 49 ⇒r= 7
∴ a = 7cm ⇒ area of ∆ = √ 3/4 *(7)2 cm2=49√3/4 cm2

Q 10 - If the sweep of a circle is expanded to three times, then how often will its periphery are expanded?

A - 2 times

B - 3 times

C - 1/3 times

D - 9 times

Answer : A

Explanation

Let original radius = R. Then, circumference= 2πR
New radius = 3R. New circumference= 2π*(3R) = 6πR
Increase = (6πR-2πR) = 4πR = 2(2πR) = 2* original circumference
