Important 1 Mark Questions
Here we provide important questions that should be practiced to prepare for the 1 mark questions set to be asked in the class 10 Mathematics exam.
- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics Exam 2021, Section-A will contain 20 questions of 1 mark each. These one mark questions can be asked in different formats like MCQs, short answer type questions, case study based questions, etc.
Some sample questions from the set of Important 1 Mark Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam are given below:
Q. Find the length of the tangent from a point M which is at a distance of 17 cm from the centre O of the circle of radius 8 cm.
Consider the figure:
Since, MN is the tangent of the circle,
∠MNO = 90⁰
⟹ MO2 = MN2 + ON2
⟹ 172 = MN2 + 82
⟹ 289 = MN2 + 64
⟹ 289 – 64 = MN2
⟹ MN2 = 225
⟹ MN = 15
Thus, the length of the tangent is 15 cm.
Q. If the common difference of an A.P. is 3, then find a20 – a15.
Let the first term of the AP be a.
an = a(n − 1)d
a20 – a15 = [a + (20 – 1)d] – [a + (15 – 1)d]
= 19d – 14d
= 5 × 3

Important 2 Marks Questions
Here you will get important 2 marks questions which might be asked in CBSE class 10 Mathematics paper.
- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics exam 2021, Section-B will contain 6 questions of 2 marks each.
Some sample questions from the set of Important 2 Marks Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:
Q. Solve the following system of linear equations by substitution method:
2x – y = 2
x + 3y =15
Here, 2x – y = 2
⟹ y = 2x – 2
⟹ x + 3y = 15
Substituting the value of y from (i) in (ii), we get
x + 6x – 6 = 15
⟹ 7x = 21
⟹ x = 3
From (i), y = 2 × 3 – 2 = 4
∴ x = 3 and y = 4
Q. From a rectangular sheet of paper ABCD with AB = 40 cm and AD = 28 cm, a semi-circular portion with BC as diameter is cut off. Find the area of remining paper (use π = 22/7)
Given situation can be represented as the following diagram:
Length of paper, AB = l = 40cm
Width of paper, AD = b = 28cm
Area of paper = l × b = 40 × 28 = 1120 cm2
Diameter of semi-circle = 28cm
∴ Radius of semi-circle, r = 14cm
Thus, area of semi-circle = 1/2. πr2
= 1/2 × 22/7 × 14 × 14
∴ Area of remaining paper = 1120 – 308 = 812 cm2

Important 3 Marks Questions
Get here a collection of important 3 marks questions which students must practice to make an effective preparation for the CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Paper 2021.
- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics exam 2021, Section-B will contain 7 questions of 3 marks each
Some sample questions from the set of Important 3 Marks Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:
Q. The sum of the 4th and 8th terms of an AP is 24 and the sum of the 6th and 10th term is 44. Find the first three terms of the AP.
Given that sum of the 4th and 8th terms of an AP is 24.
⟹ a + 3d + a + 7d = 24
⟹ 2a + 10d = 24 ...(i)
Also the sum of the 6th and 10th term is 44.
⟹ a + 5d + a + 9d = 44
⟹ 2a + 14d = 44 ...(ii)
Subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii), we get:
4d = 20
⟹ d = 5
Substituting d = 5 in equation (i), we have:
2a + 10d = 24
⟹ 2a + 10 (5) = 24
⟹ 2a + 50 = 24
⟹ 2a = −26
⟹ a = −13
Hence first term of given A.P. is −13 and common difference is 5.
Q. The taxi charges in a city comprise of a fixed charge together with the charges for the distance covered. For a journey of 10 km the charge paid is Rs. 75 and for a journey of 15 km the charge paid is Rs. 110. What will a person have to pay for travelling a distance of 25 km?
Let the fixed charge of taxi be Rs. x per km and the running charge be Rs y per km.
According to the question,
x + 10y = 75
x + 15y = 110
Subtracting equation (ii) from equation (i), we get
– 5y = – 35
⟹ y = 7
Putting y = 7 in equation (i), we get x = 5
∴Total charges for travelling a distance of 25 km = x + 25y
= (5 + 25 × 7)
= (5 + 175)
= Rs 180

Important Long Answer Type Questions
Here you will get a set of important long answer type questions. However, CBSE Class 10 Maths Paper 2021 will not include 4 marks questions that were earlier asked in a different section of the paper. Students can practice with these questions to revise important concepts that will help them attempt the long answer type questions accurately in their Maths exam.
Some sample questions from the set of Important long answer type questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:
Q. A motor boat whose speed is 24 km/hr in still water takes 1 hr more to go 32km upstream than to return downstream to the same spot. Find the speed of the stream.
Let the speed of stream be x.
Speed of boat in upstream is 24 ‒ x
In downstream, speed of boat is 24 + x
According to question,
Time taken in the upstream journey ‒ Time taken in the downstream journey = 1 hour
Q. The first and the last terms of an AP are 10 and 361 respectively. If its common difference is 9 then find the number of terms and their total sum?
Given, first term, a = 10
Last term, al = 361
And, common difference, d = 9
Now al =a + (n −1)d
⟹ 361 = 10 + (n − 1)9
⟹ 361 = 10 + 9n − 9
⟹ 361 = 9n + 1
⟹ 9n = 360
⟹ n = 40
Therefore, total number of terms in AP = 40
Now, sum of total number of terms of an AP is given as:
Sn = n/2 [2a + (n − 1)d]
⟹ S40 = 40/2 [2 × 10 + (40 − 1)9]
= 20[20 + 39 x 9]
=20[20 + 351]
=20 × 371 = 7420
Thus, sum of all 40 terms of AP = 7420
