S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. 4a = 2(l + b)

a=1/2 (l+b)

Area of square, A = a²

= ¼ (l² + b² + 2lb)

Area of Rectangle, B = lb

A > B

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. Diagonal = √(l²+b²+h² )

=√(25+16+9)

=√50

=5√2 cm

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol.

Diagonal of Rectangle = Diameter of circle

= 5 cm

25 = b² + 16

b = 3 cm

area of rectangle = lb

= 12 cm²

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. Radius of the largest sphere

=18/2=9 cm

Volume of sphere = 4/3 Ï€r³

=4/3×81×9×Ï€

= 972 Ï€

S5. Ans.(a)

Sol. w = Ï€ y²

Bigger Area – Smaller Area = w'

Ï€y²-Ï€x²=w'

1-(Ï€x²)/(Ï€y² )=w'/(Ï€y² )

1-x²/y² =w'/w

x/y=√(1-w'/w)

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Diagonal = √(16)²+(30)²

=√(256+900)

=√1156

= 34 m

Distance that elephant has to cover = 34 – 4= 30 m

Speed of elephant = 30/15 m/sec= 2 m/sec

S7. Ans.(c)

Sol. Volume of box

=√(12×15×20)

=√3600 cm³

= 60 cm³

S8. Ans.(c)

Sol. L : B = 3 : 2

Let length ⇒ 3x

breadth ⇒ 2x

Distance covered by cyclist = 2(3x + 2x) = 10x

ATQ,

10x = 12 × 8/60

x = 8/50 km

=8/50×1000 m

= 160 m

Length = 480 m

Breadth = 320 m

Area = 480 × 320

= 153600 m²

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. Curved Surface are = 2Ï€rh

New curved surface are

=2Ï€×75/100×r×125/100×h

=2Ï€×3/4×r×5/4×h

=15/8 Ï€rh

Decrease om area

=2Ï€rh-15/8 Ï€rh

=1/8 Ï€rh

% Decrease = (Ï€rh/8)/2Ï€rh×100

=100/16

= 6.25%

S10. Ans.(b)

Sol. Volume of are removed

= Ï€r²h – 1/3 Ï€r²h

= 2/3 Ï€r² h

=2/3×22/7×1.44 ×1.4

=88.704/21

= 4.224 cm³

S11. Ans.(a)

Sol. Let width of Road be x

Area of Rectangle – Area of Road = 2109

60 × 40 – [60 × x + 40x – x²] = 2109

x² – 100x + 291 = 0

x = 3 m

S12. Ans.(a)

Sol. Area enclosed between square and Circumference of Circle

= 140 × 140 – Ï€ × 70 × 70

= 19600 – 15400

= 4200 cm²

S13. Ans.(d)

Sol. 2Ï€r = 8.8

r = 1.4 cm

2Ï€rh = 17.6

2 × 22/7 × 1.4 × h = 17.6

h = 2 m

Volume Required = Ï€r²h = 12.32 m³

S14. Ans.(d)

Sol. No. of bottles = (2/3 Ï€r^3)/(Ï€r^2 h)

=(2×9×9×9)/(3×3/2×3/2×4)

= 54

S15. Ans.(d)

Sol. Let the water rises h meter

l × b × h = Area × speed × time

80×40×h=40/(100×100)×10000×1/2

h=1/160 m

=5/8 cm
