MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 3

### The areas of two similar Δs are 81 cm2 and 144 cm2. If the largest side of the smaller Δ is 27 cm, then the largest side of the larger Δ is :

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 3

Let ABC and DEF be the two similar Δs having area 81 cm2 and 144 cm2 respectively:
Let BC = 27 cm
Then since ΔABC ∼ ΔDEF

∴ x = 36 cm.

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 4

A ladder 15 m long reaches a window which is 9 m above the ground on one side of street. Keeping its foot at the same point, the ladder is turned to the other side of the street to reach a window 12 m high. What is the width of the street:

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 4

Draw a figure as per given question,
In a Right triangle ADC, Use the (Pythagoras Theorem)

In a Right triangle BCE, Use the formula

∴ Width of the street (AC + BC) = AB = 12 + 9 = 21 m.

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 5

In an equilateral Δ ABC, if AD ⊥ BC, then which option is true?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 5

Lat AB = BC = AC = a
AB2 = AD2 + BD2 (Pythagoras Theorem)

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 6

In the adjoining figure ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D + ∠E + ∠F = ?

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 6

In ΔACE
∠A + ∠C + ∠E = 180°
Similarly in ΔDFB
∠D + ∠F + ∠B = 180°
∴ (∠A + ∠C + ∠E) + (∠D + ∠F + ∠B) = 360°
∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D + ∠E + ∠F = 360°

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 7

In ΔABC, the angle bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at O. If ∠A = 70°, then ∠BOC is equal to:

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 7

As we know the formula,

∠BOC = 125°

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 8

In the given figure, AB || CD and AC || BD. If ∠EAC = 40°, ∠FDG = 55°, ∠HAB = x; then the value of x is:

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 8

∠DCK = ∠FDG = 55° (corr. ∠s)
∴ ∠ACE = ∠DCK = 55° (vert. opp. ∠s)
So, ∠AEC = 180° – (40° + 55°) = 85°
∴ ∠HAB = ∠AEC = 85° (corr. ∠s)
Hence, x = 85°.

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 9

If two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal, then the bisectors of the two pairs of interior angles enclose a:

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 9

∠AGH = ∠DHG (alt. int. angles)

Thus, lines GM and HL are intersected by a transversal GH at G and H respectively such that pair of alternate angles are equal, i.e.,
∴ ∠HGM = ∠GHL
∴ GM || HL
Similarly, GL || HM
So, GMHL is a ||gm.
Since AB || CD and EF is a transversal
∴ ∠BGH + ∠DHG = 180° [co-interior angles]

But ∠LGH + ∠LHG + ∠GLH = 180°
∴ 90° + ∠GLH = 180° ⇒ ∠GLH = 90°
Thus, in ||gm GMHL, we have ∠GLH = 90°
Hence, GMHL is a rectangle.

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 10

The complement of an angle exceeds the angle by 60°. Then the angle is equal to:

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 10

Let, the angle be A
⇒ Its complement angle = 90° – A
According to the question
(90 – A) = A + 60°
⇒ 90 - 60 = A + A
⇒ 2A = 30°
⇒ A = 15°

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 11

In the given figure, OP bisect ∠BOC and OQ bisects ∠AOC. Then ∠POQ is equal to :

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 11

Since OP bisects ∠BOC,
∴ ∠BOC = 2∠POC
Again, OQ bisects ∠AOC,
∴ ∠AOC = 2∠QOC
Since ray OC stands on line AB, ∴,
∠AOC + ∠BOC = 180°
⇒ 2∠QOC + 2∠POC = 180°
⇒ 2∠QOC + ∠POC = 180°
⇒ ∠QOC + ∠POC = 90°
⇒ ∠POQ = 90°.
The above sum can also be restated as follows; The angle between the bisectors of a linear pair of angles is a right angle.

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 12

In the given figure, ∠B = ∠C = 55° and ∠D = 25°. Then:

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 12

According to question,
∠B = ∠C = 55° , ∠D = 25°
We can say ,
AB = AC ( ∴ ∠B = ∠C = 55° )
In Triangle ABC,
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 55° + 55° = 180°
⇒ ∠A + 110° = 180°
⇒ ∠A = 180° - 110°
⇒ ∠A = 70° ..........................(1)
As per given figure,
∠ACD + ∠ACB = 180° ( ∠ACB = ∠C = 55°)
⇒ ∠ACD + 55° = 180°
⇒ ∠ACD = 180° - 55°
⇒ ∠ACD = 125° ....................... (2)
Now in Triangle ACD,
∠CAD + ∠ACD + ∠CDA = 180°
⇒ ∠CAD + 125° + 25° = 180°
⇒ ∠CAD + 150° = 180°
⇒ ∠CAD = 30° ...........................(3)
In a Δ, greater angle has longer side opposite to it )
From the equation (1) , (2) and (3);
∠B < ∠A and ∠CAD > ∠D ;
∴ BC > CA and CA < CD

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 13

In the given figure ∠QPR = 90°, QR = 26 cm, PM = 6 cm, MR = 8 cm and ∠PMR = 90°, find the area of ΔPQR.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 13

Given in the question, QR = 26 cm, PM = 6 cm, MR = 8 cm
According to question, in Δ PMR
(Pythagoras Theorem)

According to question, in Δ PQR
(Pythagoras Theorem)

∴ area of triangle ∆PQR = Base length x Height / 2
⇒ area of triangle ∆PQR = PR x PQ / 2
⇒ area of triangle ∆PQR = 10 x 24 / 2 = 10 x 12
⇒ area of triangle ∆PQR = 120

MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 14

In, ΔABC, D and E are the mid-points of AB and AC respectively. Find the ratio of the areas of ΔADE and ΔABC.

Detailed Solution for MCQ: Geometry - 2 - Question 14

Clearly DE || BC (by converse of BPT) ∴ ΔADE ∼ ABC (∠A = ∠A and ∠ADE = ∠B)
