Questions and Answers

Q 1 - In which quadrant does the point (- 5, 7) lies?

A - First

B - second

C - third

D - fourth

Answer : B

Explanation

The point (-5, 7) lies in 2nd quadrant

Q 2 - The separation between the point A (b, 0) and B (0, a) is:

A - √ a2-b2

B - √a2+b2

C - √a+b

D - (a+b)

Answer : B

Explanation

AB =   √ (b-0)2+ (0-a) 2   = √ b2+a2 = √a2+b2

Q 3 - P is a point on x-hub at a separation of 3 units from y-pivot on its right side. The co-ordinates of P are:

A - (3, 0)

B - (0, 3)

C - (3, 3)

D - (- 3, 3)

Answer : A

Explanation

   Clearly, the co-ordinates of P are P (3, 0).

Q 4 - The focuses A (- 3, 0), B (1, - 3) and C (4, 1) are the vertices of

A - An equilateral triangle

B - an isosceles right angle triangle

C - a scalene triangle

D - None of these

Answer : B

Explanation

AB2= (1+3) 2+ (-3-0) 2= 16+9= 25
BC2= (4-1) 2+ (1+3) 2=9+16= 25
AC2= (4+3) 2+ (1-0) 2= 49+1= 50
Clearly, AB= BC and AB2+BC2= AC2
∴ ∆ABC is ab isosceles right angle triangle.

Q 5 - The end purposes of the distance across of a circle are A (4,- 1) and B(- 2,- 5). The co-ordinates of its middle are:

A - (1, - 3)

B - (2, - 4)

C - (- 1, 2)

D - (- 2, 3)

Answer : A

Explanation

Co-ordinates of the center are [4+ (-2)/2, -1+ (-5)/2], i.e. (1,-3)

Q 6 - Two vertices of a ∆abc are A (6, 4) and B (- 2, 2) and its centroid is G (3, 4). The directions of C are:

A - (4, 5)

B - (5, 3)

C - (5, 6)

D - (- 3, 3)

Answer : C

Explanation

  Let the co- ordinates of C be (a, b). Then,
 1/3 (6-2+a) =3 and 1/3 (4+2+b) =4
 4+a=9 and 6+b=12  ⇒ a=5, b= 6

Q 7 - The slop of a flat line is

A - 0

B - 1

C - -1

D - none of these

Answer : A

Explanation

The slop of a horizontal line is m= tan ℴ =0

Q 8 - A line goes through the focuses A (- 2, 3) and B (- 6, 5). The slop of line AB is

A - - 1/2

B - 1/2

C - 3/4

D - -1

Answer : A

Explanation

  Slop = (y₁ ?y₂)/( x₁-x₂) = (5-3)/(-6+2) = 2/-4 =-1/2

Q 9 - The mathematical statement of a line going through the focuses A(- 1,1) and B(2,- 4) is:

A - 3x+5y+2 = o

B - 5x+3y+2 =0

C - 2x+3y+5 =0

D - none of these

Answer : B

Explanation

The equation of the line is (y-y₁)/(x-x₁) =
 (y₂-y₁)/(x₂-x₁)
 i.e., (y-1)/(x+1) = -4-1/2+1 ⇒ (y-1)/(x+1) = -5/3
 ⇒ 3y-3= -5x-5 ⇒ 5x+3y+2 = 0

Q 10 - The mathematical statement of a line passing through (3, 4) and parallel to x-pivot is:

A - y-4 =0

B - y-1 =0

C - y+4 = 0

D - none of these

Answer : C

Explanation

The equation of the line is y+4/x-3 = tan0= 0 ⇒ y+4 = 0
