  • Q49) A school teacher played a game, ‘Geo-basics’ with the students of a mathematics class by asking them to write a statement each on a piece of paper. The statements should be related to basics of geometry lesson that he taught last week to the class. He gave 3 points to a student, if the statement written by him/her is ‘always true’, 2 points, if the statement is ‘sometimes true’ and 1 point if the statement is ‘never true’.
    What is the sum of the points given by the teacher to a group of five students who wrote the following statements:
    (a) It is possible to draw three points that are noncoplanar.
    (b) If two ants are walking along different straight lines but in different directions, their paths cannot cross more than once.
    (c) If two rays share a common endpoint, then they form a line.
    (d) Three coplanar lines may have zero, one, two or three points of intersection.
    (e) If two planes intersect, they intersect in a straight line.

    1. 11
    2. 13
    3. 15
    4. Cannot be determined
    5. None of these.

  • Q50) In the figure, chord ED is parallel to the diameter AC of the circle. If < CBE = 65 then find tha value of < DEC


  • Q51) ABC is a triangle where AB = 4, the median AD = 1, then find the minimum value of the angle BAC?
    (1) 90°
    (2) 120°
    (3) 150°
    (4) 135°

  • AB^2 + AC^2 = 2 * (AD^2+BD^2)
    4 * AD^2=2b^2+2c^2-a^2
    4 * AD^2=b^2+c^2+2bc * cosA
    so 4=b^2+16+2 * b * 4 * cosA
    so cosA=((-12-b^2)/8b
    so min value will be at b=2 * sqrt 3
    so cosA=-sqrt3/2 so B=150

  • Q52) Mandakini draws a square ABCD of side 1 unit. She then draws 10 straight lines connecting A to each of 11 equally spaced points lying internally on CD (including C and D). What is the total area (in unit square) of all the possible triangles that can be formed

  • Q53) Four villages lie at the vertices of a squares of side 1km. What is the smallest length of road needed to link all village together

  • Q54) If the area and perimeter of a triangle have same numerical value which is 30 and the longest side of triangle is 13 unit then what is the different between longest side and smallest side of this triangle.

  • a + b = 17
    15 * 2 * (15 - a)(a - 2) = 900 (using herons formula)
    (15 - a)(a - 2) = 30
    a = 5 or 12
    So, 5, 12, 13

  • Q55) An insect starts at vertex A of a certain cube and is trying to reach at vertex B, which is opposite A, in 5 or fewer steps where a step consists travelling along an edge from one vertex to another. The insect will stop as soon as it reaches B. The number of ways in which the insect can achieve its objective is

  • Q56) In an isosceles right angled triangle,the perimeter is 20m. Find its area

  • Q57) Find the number of triangles with integer sides if perimeter is 50

  • Q58) How many triangles with integer sides can be formed with perimeter 19units, having one side odd and two sides even ?

  • Q59) Triangle ABC is a scalene acute angled triangle. A line passing through the incenter of the triangle divides the triangle into two equal areas. If S is the perimeter of Δ ABC, then CD + CE =?
    a. S/2
    b. S/3
    c. S/4
    d. 2S/3
    e. 3S/4

  • Method1 - 1/2 * r * CD + 1/2 * r * EC =Area of Triangle CED
    r/2 [ CD + EC ] = Area of triangle CED
    r/2 [ CD + EC ] = 1/2 * r * ( Semi perimeter )
    CD + EC = Semi perimeter
    CD + EC = S/2 , where S is perimeter

    Method2 - draw perpendicular from I to EC and CD area of triangle
    A = r * s
    A(IDC) + Area(IEC) = 1/2 * (total area)
    1/2((CD+EC) * r = r * s/2
    so CD + EC = s/2

  • Q60) The inscribed circle of an isoscles triangle ABC is tangent to side AB at point D and bisects the segment CD. If CD = 6√2. Which among the following can not be true about ABC?
    (a) The perimeter is 24
    (b) It's obtuse angled
    (c) The bisector segment of the smallest angle is 6√2
    (d) The perimeter is 28
    (e) none

  • Q61) A rectangle has area A cm^2 and perimeter P cm , where A and P are positive integers. Which of the following numbers cannot equal A+P ?
    A. 100
    B. 102
    C. 104
    D. 106
    E. 108

  • Q62) What is the least perimeter of an obtuse-angled triangle with integer sides, whose one acute angle is twice the other?
