**Exercise 6.1**

**Multiple Choice Questions (Q. No. 1-6)**

**Question. 1 **In figure, if ∠*BAC* = 90^{o} and *AD *^* BC. *Then,

**Answer.**** (c) **

**Explanation: **

Consider the following diagram:

**Question. 2** If the Lengths of the diagonals of rhombus are 16 cm and 12 cm. Then, the Length of the sides of the rhombus is

(a) 9cm

(b) 10cm

(c) 8cm

(d) 20cm

**Answer.**** (b)*** *

**Explanation: **

Given, *AC *= 16cm and* BD* = 12cm

As the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

⟹ *AO *= 8cm, *BO *= 6cm and Ð*AOB* = 90° ….(i)

Using Pythagoras theorem in right angled Δ*AOB*, w have

* AB*^{2} = *AO*^{2} + *OB*^{2}

⟹* AB ^{2}* = 8

^{2}+ 6

^{2}[Using (i)]

⟹ *AB** *= 10cm.

Thus length of each side of rhombus is 10 cm.

**Question. 3** If *D**ABC ~ **D**EDF* and D*ABC* is not similar to D*DEF*, then which of the following is not true?

(a)* BC.**EF = AC.FD*

(b)* AB.EF = AC.DE** *

(c)* BC.DE = AB.EF*

(d)*BC.**DE = AB.FD*

**Answer.**** (c)*** *

**Explanation: **

Hence, option (b) is also true.

This expression shows that sides of one triangle D*CAB* are proportional to the sides of the other triangle D*PQR* and their corresponding angles are also equal.

Therefore, D*PQR* ~ D*CAB*.

**Question. 5** In figure, two line segments *AC *and *BD* intersect each other at the point *P* such that *PA = *6cm, *PB *= 3cm, *PC *= 2.5cm, *PD = *5cm, Ð*APB = *50° and Ð*CDP *= 30°. Then, Ð*PBA* is equal to

**Answer.**** (d)**

**Explanation: **

Thus, Ð*PBA = *100° verifies the option (d).

**Question. 6** If in two triangles *DEF *and *PQR,* Ð*D* =* *Ð*Q *and Ð*R* =* **Ð**E, *then which of the following is not true?

**Answer.**** **(**b**)* *
