**Q3. A girl walks 200 m towards east and then 150m towards north .The distance of the girl from the starting point is**

**(a) 350 m (b) 250m (c) 300m (d) 225m**

Ans. (b) 250 m

Let initial point of the girl is A ,she walks 200m towards the east upto B point and then turn 150 m towards the north upto C

Therefore the distance of the girl from the initial point is = AC

The triangle ABC so formed is a right triangle,so applying pythogorus theorem

AC² =AB² + BC² = 200² +150² = 40000 + 22500

AC² = 62500

AC =√62500

AC = 250

Hence the distance of the girl from the starting point is 250 m

**Q4. Length of the diagonals of a rhombus are 24 cm and 32 cm,then the length of the altitude of the rhombus is**

**(a) 12 cm (b) 12.8 cm (c) 19 cm (d) 19.2 cm**

Ans.

Since the diagonal of the rhombus bisect each other at 90°, therefore ΔAOB is a right triangle

So, AB² =OA² + OB² = 16² +12²=256 +144

AB² = 400

AB =√400 = 20

Area of the rhombus = Base × Atitude =AB ×h = 20h

The area of the rhombus = (1/2) (Product of the diagonals)= (32×24)/2=384 cm²

20h =384

h = 384/20 = 19.2

Hence altitude of the rhombus is 19.2 cm

**Q28. If 1 + sin²α = 3 sin α cos α,then values of cot α are**

**(a) -1,1 (b) 0,1 (c) 1,2 (d) -1,-1**

Ans. We are given that

1 + sin²α = 3 sin α cos α

sin²α + cos²α + sin²α = 3 sin α cos α

2 sin²α -3 sin α cos α + cos²α = 0

2 sin²α -2sin α cos α- sin α cos α+ cos²α = 0

2 sin α( sin α -cos α) -cos α( sin α – cos α) = 0

( sin α -cos α) ( 2 sin α -cos α) = 0

sin α -cos α= 0

sin α = cos α

cos α /sin α =1

cot α = 1

Taking

2 sin α -cos α= 0

2 sin α = cos α

cos α/sin α =2

cot α =2

Hence the values of cot α are 1,2

Let the mid point of the line segment joining A(4,5) and B(-2,3)

Perpendicular bisector is equidistant from the point A and point B

√[(x -4)² + (y -5)²] = √[(x +2)² + (y -3)²]

Squaring both sides

(x -4)² + (y -5)² = (x +2)² + (y -3)²

x² + 16 -8x + y² + 25 -10y = x² + 4 + 4x + y²+9 -6y

-8x -10y +41 = 4x -6y +13

-8x -4x -10y +6y =13 -41 = -28

**(a) 2/3 (b) 1/2 (c) 1/3 (d) 1/4**

Ans. (a) 2/3

It is given to us taht point P divides the line segment joining two points R(-1,3) and S(9,8) in ratio k : 1

Applying the section formula

x =(mx_{2}+nx_{1})(m+n), y=(my_{2}+ny_{1})(m+n)

Where (x,y) is the point P, m : n = k : 1, (x_{1},y_{1}) =(-1,3) and (x_{2},y_{2}) =(9,8)

x =(9k-1)/k+1), y =(8k+3)/k+1)

Therefore coordinates of the point P are [(9k-1)/k+1), (8k+3)/k+1)]

Since point P lies on the line x -y +2 =0,so the coordinates of point P should satisfy the equation

(9k-1)/k+1) -(8k+3)/k+1) +2 =0

9k -1 -8k -3 +2k +2 =0

3k -2 =0

Area of the shaded semicircle HEF is =( 1/2)π×r² (where r=7, is half of the side of the square)

=(22/14)×7×7 =77 cm²

Area of shaded portion = 21 + 77 =98 cm²

**Q37. Given below is the picture of Olympic rings made by taking five congruent circles of radius 1 cm each , intersecting in such a way that the chord formed by joining the point of intersection of two circles is also of length 1 cm. The total area of all the dotted regions assuming the thickness of the rings to be negligible is**

**(a) 4(π/12 -√3/4) cm² (b) (π/6 -√3/4) cm² (c) 4(π/6 -√3/4) cm² (d) 8(π/6-√3/4) cm²**

Ans.(d) 8(π/6-√3/4)

The length of the chord is =1 cm, length of the radii of the circles is =1 cm

Joining A and B to the centre of circle,we get an equilateral triangle ABO of the side 1 cm

Area of the minor segment = Area of minor sector AOB-Area of ΔAOB

Area of ΔAOB = side²(√3/4) ( side =1 cm) = 1²×√3/4 =√3/4

Area of minor sector = (60°/360°)×πr² = (1/6)π×1²=π/6 cm²

Area of the minor segment = (π/6- √3/4) cm²

Since chord drawn in the circle divides the dotted portion in two equal parts

Therefore area of the dotted portion =2 (π/6-√3/4) cm²

The area of 4 dotted portion =4×2(π/6-√3/4) =8(π/6-√3/4)

**Q38. If 2 and 1/2 are the zeroes of px² + 5x + r,then**

**(a) p =r =2 (b) p =r =-2 (c) p = 2 ,r =-2 (d) p =-2, r =2**

Ans.(b) p = r =-2

In a quadratic equation ax² +bx + c=0,the relationship between coefficients and the zeroes (α and β) are as follows

α + β = -b/a and α β = c/a

The given equation is px² + 5x + r

2 +1/2 = -5/p

5/2 = -5/p

p = -5×2/5 = -2

2(1/2) = r/-2

r =-2

Hence p=r =-2

**Q39.The circumference of a circle is 100 cm. The side of a square inscribed in the circle is**

**(a) 50√2 cm (b) 100/π cm (c) 50√2/π cm (d) 100√2/π cm**

Ans.(c) 50√2/π cm

The circumference of the circle is =2πr =100 ⇒r = 100/2π

Since the square is inscribed in the circle

Therefore the radius of the circle = half of the diagonal of the square =100/2π

Diagonals of the square bisect each other at 90°

∴ Side of the square =√[(100/2π)² +(100/2π)²]=√2(100/2π)²)=√2(10000/4π²) =50√2/π cm

**Q40.The number of solutions of ****3 ^{x+y}=243 and 243^{x+y }=3 is**

(a) 0 (b) 1 (c) 2 (d) infinite

Ans.(a) 0

We are given the equations 3^{x+y}=243 and 243^{x+y }=3

Factorizing 243

243 = 3×3×3×3×3 = 3^{5}

Substituting 243 =3^{5 }in both of the equations

3^{x+y}=3^{5} and( 3^{5})^{x+y }=3

x + y =5 …(i) and 5x +5y =1…(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we have

1/5 =1/5 ≠-5/-1

Therefore the given equations have infinite solutions

**Q41 -Q45 are based on Case Study I**

The figure given alongside shows the path of a diver ,when she takes a jump from the diving board .Clearly it is a parabola.

Anni was standing on a diving board ,48 feet above the water level. She took a dive into the pool. Her height (in feet) above the water level at any time ‘t’ in seconds is given by the polynomial h(t) such that

h(t) =-16 t²+8t + k

**Q41. What is the value of k?**

**(a) 0 (b) -48 (c) 48 (d) 48/-16**

Ans.(c) 48

Inially Anni was standing on a diving board which is 48 above the water level

So,at time ,t =0 the height is 48 feet

h(0) = 16 ×0² +8×0 +k

48 =k

**Q42. At what time will she touch the water in the pool ?**

**(a) 30 seconds (b) 2 seconds (c) 1.5 seconds (d) 0.5 seconds**

Ans.(b) 2 seconds

Let she touch the water in the pool in t time

Since at t=0,her height above the water level was 48 feet,so after t time ,her height above the water level will be 0, means h(t) =0

So,

-16 t²+8t + k =0

16t² -8t -48 =0

2t² -t -6 =0

2t² -4t +3t -6 =0

2t(t -2) +3(t -2) =0

(2t +3)(t-2) =0

Taking 2t +3=0⇒t =-3/2 and t-2 =0⇒t =2

Neglecting negative root because time can’t be negative,therefore time taken by Annie to reach the water level is 2 seconds

**Q43. Rita’s height (in feet) above the water level is given by another polynomial p(t) with zeroes -1 and 2. Then p(t) is given by-**

**(a) t² +t -2 (b) t² +2t -1 (c)24t² -24t +48 (d) -24t² +24t +48**

Ans.(c)24t² -24t +48

The quadratic(i.e of power 2) polynomial p(x) with zeroes α and β is given as

p(x)=x² – (α + β)x + αβ

α =-1 and β=2

∴ p(t) = t² -(-1 +2)t + 2×-1

p(t) = t² -t – 2

If we multiply the polynomail by 24(constant) then polynomial is not effected

24p(t) = 24t² -24t – 48

p(t) = 24t² -24t – 48

Hence the required polynomial is 24t² -24t – 48

**Q44. A polynomial q(t) with sum of zeroes as 1 and the product as -6 is modelling Anu’s height in feet above the water at any time t(in seconds). Then q(t) is given by**

**(a) t² +t +6 (b) t² +t -6 (c)-8t² +8t +48 (d) 8t² -8t +48**

Ans.(c) -8t² +24t + 48

The quadratic(i.e of power 2) polynomial p(x) with zeroes α and β is given as

p(x)=x² – (α + β)x + αβ

The sum of the zeroes and the product of zeroes given to us ,

α + β =1 and αβ =-6

q(t)=t² – t + (-6)

q(t) =t² – t -6

If we multiply the polynomail by -8(constant) then polynomial is not effected

-8p(t) = -8t² +24t + 48

Hence the required polynomial is -8t² +24t + 48

**Q45. The zeroes of the polynomial r(t) =-12t² +(k-3)t +48 are negative of each other.Then k is**

**(a) 3 (b) 0 (c) -1.5 (d) -3**

Ans.(a) 3

Let one of the zeroes of the given polynomial -12t² +(k-3)t +48 is α then other is -α

The relationship between the coefficients and the zeroes of the polynomial is given by

α +β = -b/a and αβ = c/a

α -α =-(k-3)/-12

0 =(k-3)/12

k-3 =0

k =3

Hence the value of k is 3

A hockey field is the playing surface for the game of hockey. Historically, the game was played on natural turf (grass) but nowadays it is predominantly played on an artificial turf.

It is rectangular in shape – 100 yards by 60 yards. Goals consist of two upright posts placed equidistant from the centre of the backline, joined at the top by a horizontal crossbar. The inner edges of the posts must be 3.66 metres (4 yards) apart, and the lower edge of the crossbar must be 2.14 metres (7 feet) above the ground.

Each team plays with 11 players on the field during the game icluding the goalie.

Positions you might play include-

- Forward: As shown by players A,B,C and D
- Midfielders: As shown by players E,F and G
- Fullbacks: As shown by players H,I and J
- Goalie: As shown by player K

Using the picture of a hocky field below ,answer the questions that follow.

**Q46.The coordinates of the centroid of ΔEHJ are**

**(a) (-2/3,1) (b) (1,-2/3) (c) (2/3,1) (d) -2/3,-1)**

Ans.(a) (-2/3,1)

The vertices of ΔEHJ are E(2,1),H(-2,4) and J(-2,-2)

The centroid of the triangle is =[(2-2-2)/3,(1+4-2)/3]=(-2/3,1)

**Q47.If a player needs to be at equal distances from A and G,such that A,P and G are in straight line ,then position of P will be given by**

**(a) (-3/2,2) (b) (2,-3/2) (c) (2,3/2) (d) (-2,-3)**

Ans.(c) (2,3/2)

The position of player A(3,6) and of player G(1,-3)

A,P and G are in straight line and P is equidistant from A and G,means P is the mid point od A and G

Coordinates of P = [(3+1)/2,(6-3)/2]=(4/2,3/2) =(2,3/2)

Hence position of P is (2,3/2)

**Q48.The point on x axis equidistant from I and E is**

**(a) (1/2,0) (b) (0,-1/2) (c) (-1/2,0) (d) 0,1/2)**

Ans.(a) (1/2,0)

Let the point on axis is (x,0) equidistant from I and E

The coordinates of E are (2,1) and of I are (-1,1)

√[(x-2)² +(0-1)²]=√[(x+1)² +(0-1)²]

(x-2)² +(0-1)²=(x+1)² +(0-1)²

x² +4-4x +1 =x² +1 +2x +1

-4x -2x +5 -2 =0

-6x +3 =0

-6x =-3

x = -3/-6 = 1/2

Hence the required point on x axis is (1/2,0)

**Q49.What are the coordinates of the position of a player Q such that his distance from k is twice his distance from E and K,Q and E are collinear?**

**(a) (1,0) (b) (0,1) (c) (-2,1) (d) (-1,0)**

Ans.(b) (0,1)

It is given that K,Q and E are collinear

Let the coordinates of Q are (x,y)

Distance of player Q from K =2×Distance of player Q from E

KQ = 2QE

KQ/QE =2/1⇒ KQ : QE =2: 1

The points are K(-4,1),E(2,1)

Applying section formula

x = (2×2-4)(2+1) and y =(2×1+1×1)(2+1)

x =(4-4)/3 and y =(2+1)/3

x =0 and y =1

Hence the position of the player Q is (0,1)

**Q50.The point on Y axis equidistant from B and C is**

**(-1,0) (b) (0,-1) (c) (1,0) (d) (0,1)**

Ans.(d) (0,1)

Let point on y-axis is (0,y)

Sice point (0, y) is eqidistant from points B(4, 3) and C(4, -1)

Squaring both sides

The distance of the point (0,y) and (4,3) =The distance of the point (0,y) and C(4,-1)

√[(4-0)²+(y-3)²]=√[(4-0)²+(y+1)²]

4² + (y – 3)² = 4² + (y + 1)²

(y – 3)² = (y + 1)²

y² + 9 – 6y = y² + 1 + 2y

9 – 6y = 1 + 2y

9 – 1 = 2y + 6y

8 = 8y

y = 8/8

y = 1

∴ Required coordinates on Y axis = (0, y) = (0, 1)

So, the correct answer is (d)
