Questions and Answers

Q 1 - A room is 49/4 m long and 7 m wide. The greatest length of a square tile to fill the floor of the room with entire number of tiles ought to be.

A - 200 cm

B - 175 cm

C - 125 cm

D - 150 cm

Answer : B

Explanation

L=1225 cm and b= 700 cm
Maximum length of the square tile= H.C.F of (1225cm, 700cm) =175 cm

Q 2 - A rectangular field has measurement 25m by 15m .Two commonly opposite entries of 2m width have been left in its focal Part and grass has been developed in whatever is left of the field. The territory under the grass is:

A - 295 m2

B - 299 m2

C - 300 m2

D - 375 m2

Answer : B

Explanation

Area under the grass =[(25*15)-{(25*2)+(15*2)-(2*2)}]
= {375-(50+30-40} m2 = (375-76) m2   = 299 m2

Q 3 - The region of a square is 1/2 hectare. The length of its slanting is:

A - 250 m

B - 100 m

C - 120 m

D - 150 cm2

Answer : B

Explanation

area = (1/2*10000)m2= 5000m2
1/2*(diagonal) 2= 5000 ⇒ d2= 10000⇒d= √10000= 100m
∴ Length of diagonal = 100m

Q 4 - A rectangular plot is half as long again as it is expansive. The zone of the grass is 2/3 hectares. The length of the plot is:

A - 100 m

B - 66.66 m

C - 100/3 m

D - 100√3/3 m

Answer : A

Explanation

Let breadth = x meter. Then, length= 3x/2m
X*3x/2= 2/3*10000 ⇒ x2= 4/9*10000⇒ x= 2/3*100 =200/3m
∴ Length = (3/2*200/3) m = 100m

Q 5 - The length of a rectangle is twice than its broadness. On the off chance that the length of this rectangle is expanded by 5cm and broadness is diminished by 5cm, the territory of a rectangle is expanded by 75m2. The length of the rectangle is:

A - 20 cm

B - 30 cm

C - 40 cm

D - 50 cm

Answer : C

Explanation

Let breadth be x cm. Then, length =2x cm
(2x-5) (x+5)-x*2x =75 ⇒5x= 100 ⇒x= 20
∴Length = (2*20) cm =40 cm

Q 6 - The ratio of the area of a square of side a and that of an equilateral triangle of side a, is

A - 2:1

B - 2:√3

C - 4:3

D - 4:√3

Answer : D

Explanation

Required ratio  = a2/(√3/4) a2  = 4/√3=  4:√3

Q 7 - The areas of two similar triangles are 12 cm2 and 48 cm2 .If the height of the smaller one is 2.1 cm, then the corresponding height of the bigger one is:

A - 0.525 cm

B - 4.2 cm

C - 4.41 cm

D - 8.4 cm

Answer : B

Explanation

The areas of two similar triangles are in the ratio of the square of the corresponding sides.
∴12/48= (2.1)2/h2 ⇒h2=4* (2.1)2 ⇒h= (2* 2.1) = 4.2 cm

Q 8 - The edges of a square and a rectangle are equivalent. On the off chance that their zones are individually A m and B m, then which of the accompanying is a genuine proclamation.

A - A < B

B - A≤B

C - A > B

D - A≥B

Answer : C

Explanation

If the perimeter of a square  and a rectangle are equal, then area of the square is more. So, A>B is true.

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 - A round greenery enclosure has an outline of 440 m. There is a 7m wide fringe inside the patio nursery along its outskirts. The territory of the fringe is:

A - 2918m2

B - 2921 m2

C - 2924 m2

D - 2926 m2

Answer : D

Explanation

2πR =440 ⇒ 2*22/7*R= 440 ⇒R= (440* 7/44)=70 m
Outer radius = 70m, inner radius = (70-7) =63 m
Required area = π [(70)2-(63)2] m2= 22/7 *(70+63) (70-63) m2
= (22*133) m2, = 2926m2
