(c) 16

(d) 15.04

**Solution:$\frac{2.48\times 2.48–1.52\times 1.52}{0.96}$**

= $\frac{\left( 2.48+1.52 \right) \left( 2.48-1.52 \right)}{\left( 2.48-1.52 \right)}$ {Using formula (a^{2} – b^{2} = (a+b)(a–b) }

= 4

According question, $\frac{7}{\mathrm{m}}+\frac{8}{\mathrm{b}}=\frac{1}{2}$

⇒$\frac{21}{\mathrm{m}}+\frac{24}{\mathrm{b}}=\frac{3}{2}$ (multiplying 3 both side) —– (i)

and $\frac{4}{\mathrm{m}}+\frac{12}{\mathrm{b}}=\frac{29}{56}$

⇒$\frac{8}{\mathrm{m}}+\frac{24}{\mathrm{b}}=\frac{29}{28}$( multiplying 2 both side) —– (ii)

we get (i) – (ii)

⇒$\frac{21}{\mathrm{m}}-\frac{8}{\mathrm{m}}=\frac{3}{2}-\frac{29}{28}$

⇒$\frac{13}{\mathrm{m}}=\frac{13}{28}$

⇒ m = 28

Q13. A train passes telegraph post in the 40s moving at a rate of 36 km/h. Then, the length of the train is

(b) 500 m

(c) 450 m

(d) 395 m

**Solution:**

Speed of train** = **$36\times \frac{5}{18}=10\,\,\mathrm{m}/\mathrm{s}$

Length of the train = 40 × 10 = 400 Metre

Q14. 1n figure determines the value of y.

(a) 25°

(b) 35°

(c) 15°

(d) 40°

**Solution:**AOB is straight line, ∠AOC +∠COF +∠FOB = 180

⇒ ∠AOC +∠COF + ∠EOD = 180 (∠FOB = ∠EOD opposite angle)

⇒ 5y + 5y + 2y = 180

⇒ y = 15

(a) Neither equal nor supplementary

(b) Not equal but supplementary

(c) Equal but not supplementary

(d) Either equal or supplementary

**Solution:**If the arms of one angle are respectively parallel to the arms of another angle, then the two angles not equal but supplementary

Line l_{1} || Line l_{2}

then ∠1 ≠ ∠2 but ∠1 + ∠2 = 180°

Q16.1n the given figure, ABC is a triangle, BC is parallel to AE. If BC = AC, then what is the value of ∠CAE?

(a) 20°

(b) 30°

(c) 40°

(d) 50°

**Solution:**Given that, BC

**||**AE

∴ ∠CAB + ∠BAE = 180°

∠BAE = 180° – 65° = 115°

Again, BC = AC

∴∠CAB = ∠ ABC = 65°

∴∠CAE = 115° – 65° = 50°

Q17. ABCD is a trapezium in which AB || CD and AB = 2CD. Its diagonals intersect each other at 0, then the ratio of the ‘areas of the Δ A0B and Δ COD is

(a) 1 : 2

(b) 2 : 1

(c) 4 : 1

(d) 1 : 4

Let PQ be the perpendicular distance between the two parallel sides AB and CD

AB = 2CD, ∴ OP = 2OQ

So, $\frac{\mathrm{Area} \mathrm{of} \Delta \mathrm{AOB}}{\mathrm{Area} \mathrm{of} \Delta \mathrm{COD}}$

= $\frac{\frac{1}{2}\times \mathrm{OP}\times \mathrm{AB}}{\frac{1}{2}\times \mathrm{OQ}\times \mathrm{CD}}$

= $\frac{\frac{1}{2}\times 2\mathrm{OQ}\times 2\mathrm{CD}}{\frac{1}{2}\times \mathrm{OQ}\times \mathrm{CD}}$

= $=\frac{4}{1}=4:1$

Q18. In a circle of radius 17 cm, two parallel chords are drawn on the opposite sides of a diameter. The distance between the chords is 23 cm. If the length of one chord is 16 cm, then the length of the other chord is

(a) 34 cm

(b) 15 cm

(c) 23 cm

(d) 30 cm

Here, BE =$\frac{1}{2}\mathrm{AB}=\frac{16}{2}=8\,\,\mathrm{cm}$

OB = OD = 17 cm

In right angled ΔOEB,

OE = $\sqrt{\mathrm{OE}^2-\mathrm{BE}^2}$

= $\sqrt{17^2-8^2}\,\,=15$

∴ OF = EF – OE = 23 – 15 = 8

In right angled ΔOFD,

FD = $\sqrt{\mathrm{OD}^2-\mathrm{OF}^2}$

= $\sqrt{17^2-8^2}=15$

∴ Length of other chord = 2FD = 15×2 = 30

(a) 15

(b) 30

(c) 50

(d) 100

Q20. Which one is correct for the following data?

–1, 3, 2, 0, 1 6, 8, 5, 10, 11, 5

(a) Mean = Median = Mode

(b) Mean =Mode

(c) Mode = Median

(d) Mean =5

**Solution:**Given, –1, 3, 2, 0, 1 6, 8, 5, 10, 11, 5

Mean = $\frac{-1+3+2+0+1+6+8+5+10+11+5}{11}=4.54545$

Arranging in ascending order, –1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 5, 6, 8, 10, 11

n= 11

Median = $\frac{\mathrm{n}+1}{2}$ = $\frac{11+1}{2}$ = 6^{th} term

Median = 5

Also mode = 5

∴ Median = mode
