Part – A

Sections - I 

Section I has 16 questions of 1 mark each. Internal choice is provided in 5 questions.

Q.1. Find the LCM of smallest two digit composite number and smallest single digit composite number.  (1 Mark)
OR
The decimal representation of 11 / 23 x 5 will terminate after how many places?  (1 Mark)

Ans. Since, the smallest composite number = 4
The smallest 2 digit composite number = 10
∴ LCM of 4 and 10.
4 = 2 × 2

10 = 5 × 2

L.C.M. = 2 × 5 × 2

= 20

∴ LCM of 4 and 10 = 20
OR
Since 11 / 23 x 5 = 11 x 52 / 23 x 53
= 275 / 103 = 0.275
Thus, 11 / 23 x 5 will terminate after 3 decimal places.

Q.2. If the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial ax2 + bx + c, a ≠ 0 are equal, then what are the signs of a and c?  (1 Mark)
OR
Show that the sum of roots of quadratic equation –x2 + 3x – 3 = 0 is 3.  (1 Mark)

Ans. For equal roots b2 – 4ac = 0 or b2 = 4ac b2 is always positive so 4ac must be positive, i.e., product of a and c must be positive, i.e., a and c must have same sign either positive or negative.
OR
–x2 + 3x – 3 = 0
On comparing with
ax2 + bx + c = 0 a = – 1, b= 3, c = – 3
∴ Sum of the roots = -b / a = -3 / -1 = 3

Q.3. The point which divides the line segment joining the points (8, – 9) and (2, 3) in ratio 1 : 2 internally lies in which quadrant?  (1 Mark)
OR
If HCF of 14 and 180 is expressed in the form 13m – 16. Find the value of m.  (1 Mark)

(x, y) = [18 / 3, -15 / 3]
(x, y) = (6, – 5)
Hence, the point (6, – 5) lies in IV quadrant.
OR
Given, HCF of 144 and 180 is in form of 13m – 16,
Now, HCF of 144 and 180.
144 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3
180 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5
∴ HCF (144, 180) = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3
= 36

∵ HCF of 144 and 180 is given in the form of 13m - 16,
∴ 13m - 16 = 36
13m = 36 + 16
13m = 52
m = 52 / 13
m = 4

Q.4. If in two triangles DEF and PQR, ∠D = ∠Q and ∠R = ∠E, then DE / PQ = FE / RP is true? Justify  (1 Mark)
Ans. In D DEF and DPQR, ∠D = ∠Q and ∠R = ∠E. By AA similarity, we get DDEF ~ DQRP.
Hence, DE / QR = EF / RP = DF / QP.

Q.5. At one end A of diameter AB of a circle of radius 5 cm, tangent XAY is drawn to the circle. Find the length of the chord CD which is at a distance 8 cm from A and parallel to XY.  (1 Mark)
Ans. 
XAY is tangent and AO is radius at contact point A of circle.
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10AO = 5 cm
∴ ∠OAY = 90°
CD is another chord at distance (perpendicular) of 8 cm from A and CMD || XAY meets AB at M.
Join OD.

OD = 5 cm
OM = 8 – 5 = 3 cm
∠OMD = ∠OAY = 90°
Now, in right angled ΔOMD
MD2 = OD2 – MO2
= 52 – 32
= 25 – 9
= 16

⇒ MD = 4 cm
We know that, Perpendiculars from centre O of circle bisect the chord.
∴ CD = 2
= 2 × 4
= 8 cm.
Hence, length of chord, CD = 8 cm.

Q.6. Find the area of a sector of angle p (in degrees) of a circle with radius R.  (1 Mark)
Ans. We know that area of sector of angle θ

Q.8. The probability expressed as a percentage of a particular occurrence can never be less than 0. Is the above statement is true of false, justify.  (1 Mark)
Ans. Probability lies between 0 and 1 and when it is converted into percentage it will be between 0 and 100. So, cannot be negative.

Q.9. Two lines are given to be parallel. The equation of one of the lines is 4x + 3y = 14, then find the equation of a second line.  (1 Mark)
Ans. 
The equation of one line is 4x + 3y = 14. We know that if two lines a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2 = 0 are parallel, then
a1 / a2 = b1 / b2 ≠ c1 / c2
or 4 / a2 = 3 / b2 ≠ -14 / c2 ⇒ a2 / b2 = 4 / 3 ⇒ 12 / 9
Hence, one of the possible, second parallel line is 12x + 9y = 5.

Q.10. If 7 times the 7th term of an A.P. is equal to 11 times its 11th term, then find it's 18th term.  (1 Mark)
Ans. 
According to question,
7t7 = 11t11 
7 (a + 6d) = 11 (a + 10d)
4a + 68d = 0
4 (a + 17d) = 0
a + 17d = 0
t18 = 0.

Q.11. Find the ratio in which the line segment joining the points (6, 4) and (1, – 7) is divided by the x-axis.  (1 Mark)
OR
Find the coordinates of a point A, where AB is diameter of a circle whose centre is (2, –3) and B is the point (1, 4).  (1 Mark)

Ans. Let the line segment joining the given points is divided by the x-axis in the ratio k : 1 at point P.

∴ The coordinates of P are (k + 6 / k + 1, -7k + 4 / k + 1)
Since, y coordinates of every point on the x-axis is zero. -7k + 4 / k + 1 = 0 ⇒ – 7k + 4 = 0
⇒ k = 4 / 7
So, required ratio is 4 : 7.
OR
Since, AB is the diameter, centre C must be the mid point of the diameter of AB.
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10Let the co-ordinates of point A be (x, y). x-coordinate of C = x + 1 / 2
⇒ 2 = x + 1 / 2
⇒ 4 = x + 1  
⇒ x = 3
and y-coordinate of C = y + 4 / 2
⇒ - 3 = y + 4 / 2
⇒ –6 = y + 4
⇒ y = –10
Hence, coordinates of point A is (3, –10).

Q.12.  If  the angle between two tangent drawn from an external point 'p' to a circle of radius 'r' and centre O is 60°, then find the length of OP.  (1 Mark)

In ΔOBP, OB / OP = sin 30°
∴ OP = 2r
OR
QP = 3.8
QP = PT
(Length of tangents from external points are equal)
or, PT = 3.8 cm
PR = PT = 3.8 cm
or, QR = QP + PR
= 3·8 + 3·8 = 7.6 cm.

Q.13. If k + 1 = sec2θ (1 + sinθ) (1 – sinθ), then find the value of k.  (1 Mark)
Ans. k + 1= sec2θ (1 + sinθ) (1 – sinθ)
or, k + 1 = sec2θ (1 – sin2θ)
or, k + 1 = sec2θ.cos2θ[∵ sin2θ + cos2θ = 1]
or, k + 1 =Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10
or, k + 1 = 1
or, k = 1 – 1

Q.21. Given that √5 is irrational, prove that 2√5 - 3 is an irrational number.  (2 Mark)
Ans. Let us assume, to the contrary, that 2√5 − 3 is a rational number
∴ 2√5 − 3 = p / q , where p and q are integers and q ≠ 0
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10 .....(1)
Since p and q are integers
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10is a rational number
∴ √5 is a rational number which is contradiction as √5 is an irrational number
Hence our assumption is wrong and hence 2√5 − 3 is an irrational number.

∴ Zeroes are 2 / 3, -1 / 7
Sum of zeroes = 2 / 3 - 1 / 7 = 11 / 21
-b / a = 11 / 21 ∴ sum of zeroes = -b / a
Product of zeroes = (2 / 3)(-1 / 7) = -2 / 21
c / a = -2 / 3(1 / 7) = -2 / 21 ∴ Product = c / a
Detailed Solution :
Given, polynomial isClass 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10...(i)
⇒ 21y2 – 11y – 2 = 0
⇒ 21y2 – 14y + 3y – 2 = 0
⇒ 7y (3y – 2) +1 (3y – 2) = 0
⇒ (3y – 2)(7y + 1) = 0
⇒ y = 2 / 3 or y = -1 / 7
Hence, zeros of given polynomial are
y = 2 / 3 and y = -1 / 7
On comparing eq(i) with ax2 + bx + c = 0, we get
a = 21, b = –11 and c = –2
Now, Sum of roots = 2 / 3 + (-1 / 7)
= 2 / 3 - 1 / 7
= 14 - 3 / 7
= 11 / 21
= -b / a
Hence verified
and Product of roots = 2 / 3 x (-1 / 7)
= -2 / 21
= c / a
Hence verified.

Q.29. ad ≠ bc, then prove that the equation. (a2 + b2)x2 + 2(ac + bd)x + (c2 + d2) = 0 has no real roots.   (3 Mark)
Ans. We have, A = (a2 + b2), B = 2(ac + bd) and C = (c2 + d2)
For no real roots, D < 0
i.e., D ⇒ b2 – 4ac < 0
b2 – 4ac = [2(ac + bd)]2 – 4(a2 + b2)(c2 + d2)]
= 4[a2c2 + 2abcd + b2d2] – 4[a2c2 + a2d2 + b2c2 + b2d2]
= 4[a2c2 + 2abcd + b2d2 – a2c2 – a2d2 – b2c2 – b2d2]
= – 4[a2d2 + b2c2 – 2abcd]
= – 4(ad – bc)2
Since, ad ≠ bc
Therefore, D < 0
Hence, the equation has no real roots.

Q.30. If the sum of the first 14 terms of an A.P. is 1050 and its first term is 10, find its 20th term.   (3 Mark)

= 1050
20 + 13d = 1050 / 7 = 150
13d = 130
d = 130 / 13 = 10
an = a + (n – 1)d
a20 = 10 + 19 × 10 = 200
Hence, a20 = 200.

Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10In ΔDOA and ΔCOA
DA = AC
[Tangents drawn from common point]
∠ODA = ∠OCA = 90° 

[angle between tangent and radius]
OD = OC ( radius of circle)
∴ ΔDOA ≅ ΔCOA (By SAS)
Hence, ∠1 = ∠2 i.e., ∠DOA = ∠COA (By cpct) ...(i)
Similarly, ΔBOC ≅ ΔBOE (By SAS)
∴ ∠3 = ∠4 i.e., ∠COB = ∠BOE (By cpct.) ...(ii)

Now, ∠1+ ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 = 180° (angles on a straight line)
2∠2 + 2 ∠3 = 180°
[from eq(i) & eq(ii)] ∠2 + ∠3 = 90°
i.e., ∠AOC + ∠BOC = 90° or ∠AOB = 90°
Hence Proved.

Q.32. sinθ + cosθ = √3 , then prove that tanθ + cotθ = 1   (3 Mark)
Ans. sinθ + cosθ = √3 ⇒ (sinθ + cosθ)2 = 3
⇒ 1 + 2sinθ cosθ = 3 ⇒ sinθ cosθ = 1
∴ tanθ + cotθ = sinθ / cosθ + cosθ / sinθ = 1
Detailed Solution :
Given sinθ + cosθ = √3
Squaring on both sides,
(sinθ + cosθ)2 = (√3)2
sin2θ + cos2θ + 2sinθ cosθ = 3
1 + 2sinθ cosθ = 3  
2sinθ cosθ = 2
sinθ cosθ = 1 ... (i)
∴ tanθ + cotθ = sinθ / cosθ + cosθ / sinθ

The angle of depression of two ships from an aeroplane flying at the height of 7500 m are 30° and 45°. If both the ships are in the same line that one ship is exactly behind the other, find the side such distance between the ships.   (5 Mark)

Ans. 
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10In ΔAPQ
PQ / AP = sin 30° = 1 / 2
PQ = (200) (1 / 2) = 100 m
PQ = 100 – 50 = 50 m
In ΔPRD, PR / PD = sin 45° = 1 / √2

PD = (PR) (√2)
= 50√2 m
Detailed Solution :
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10

Let O be the position of the bird, A be the position for Amit, D be the position for Deepak and FD be the building at which Deepak is standing at height 50m.

Given, AO = 200m and FD = 50m
In ΔOLA, ∠L = 90°
sin 30° = OL / OA
⇒ 1 / 2 = OL / 200
⇒ OL = 200 / 2
= 100m
∴ OM = OL – LM

= OL – FD

= (100 – 50)m = 50m
In ΔOMD, ∠M = 90°
sin 45° = OM / OD
⇒ 1 / √2 = 50 / OD
⇒ OD = 50√2
= 50 × 1.414
= 70.7m
Thus, the distance of the bird from Deepak is 70.7 m.
OR
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10In ΔABC, AB / BC = tan 45°
⇒ 7500 / y = 1
⇒ y = 7500
In ΔABD, AB / BD = tan 30°
7500 / x + y = 1 / √3
⇒ x + y = 7500√3
x + 7500 = 7500√3
x = 7500√3 − 7500
= 7500 (√3 −1)
= 7500(1·73 – 1)
= 7500 × 0·73
= 5475 m
Hence, the distance between two ships
= 5475 m

Given,
Class 10 Mathematics: CBSE Sample Question Paper (2020-21) (Standard) - 4 Notes | Study CBSE Sample Papers For Class 10 - Class 10
Let 2x / (x - 5) = y
∴ y2 + 5y – 24 = 0
⇒ (y + 8) (y – 3) = 0
y = 3 or – 8
Putting y = 3 we get
2x / x - 5 = 3
2x = 3x – 15
⇒ x = 15
Again, for y = – 8, 2x / x - 5 = -8
2x = – 8x + 40
10x = 40
x = 4
Hence, x = 15 or 4
