a) 1:20
b) 2:10
c) 1:24
d) 2:13
Answer: (c)
Explanation:
Let the length is x & perimeter be 6x
Let the breadth be B
Then 2(x + B) = 6x
x + B = 3x
B = 2x
Now
Length × breadth = area
x × 2x = 1152
2 x 2 = 1152
x = 24
Hence length = 24 m
Ratio of length: area
24:576
1:24
5. Salaries of Ritu and Shweta are in the ratio 2: 3. If the salary of each is increased by Rs. 1000, the new ratio becomes 40: 57. What is Shweta's salary?

c) Rs. 25,500
d) Rs. 19,000
Answer: (d)
Explanation: Let the original salaries of Ritu and Shweta be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively.
Then, (2x+1000)/(3x+1000) = 40/57
57(2x + 1000) = 40(3x + 1000)
6x = 17,000
3x = 8,500
Sumit's present salary = (3x + 2000) = Rs.(8500 + 1000) = Rs. 9,500.

Marked price = 3924
Required discount = 3924 -3600 = 324

18. O is the centre of circle and∠DAB=30°. Calculate the value of x and y.
a) 60°, 120°
b) 130^{}, 100°
c) 80^{}, 140°
d) 120°, 80°
Answer: (a)
Explanation: ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral
30° + y° = 180° ⇒ y = 140°
Clearly, △OAB is an isosceles triangle with OA = OB
⇒ So ∠OBA = ∠OAB = 30°
∠AOB = 180° - (30^{} + 30°) = 120°
Hence, x = 180° – 120° = 60°
(x, y) = (60°, 120°)
= 1600 × 1/2
= 800 cm^{2}
19. In the given figure if PQ||RS, then find out the value of ∠PSR:
a) 70°
b) 50°
c) 45°
d) 75°
Answer: (b)
Explanation: When a transversal intersects two parallel lines then summation of one side angles will be 180°.
So, ∠Q +∠R = 180°
∠R = 180° - ∠Q
∠R = 180° - 90° = 90°
In PQRS,
∠SPT + ∠PTR + ∠TRS + ∠RSP = 360°
⟹ 90^{° }+ 130° + 90° + ∠RSP = 360°
⟹ ∠RSP = (360° - 310°)
⟹ ∠RSP = 50°
20. In the following figure AB||DF, AC||FE and CB||ED. If DE = 18 cm then CB = ?
a) 36 cm
b) 42 cm
c) 48 cm
d) None of these
Answer: (a)
Explanation:
AB||DF and AC||FE.
Therefore, AEFD is a Parallelogram.
So, DEBF and EFCD are also parallelogram.
Therefore, ED = BF and ED = FC
Therefore, DE = 1/2 CB
CB = 36 cm
21. The area of the circumcircle of a square and the area of the in circle of a square is proportionate to each other in the ratio of:
a) 2 : 1
b) √2 : 1
c) √2 : √3
d) √3 : 1
Answer: (a)
Explanation:
Let the side of square = a
Radius of the circumcircle of square = (a√2)/2 and
Radius of the in circle of the square = a/2
(Area of circumcircle) / (area of in circle) = (π (a√2)/2)^{2}) / (π (a/2)^{2}) = 2∶1
