(c) (14, 2), (11, 1), (8, 5)
(d) (15, 3), (12, 2), (9, 6)
Ans: (d)
Explanation: When C is taken as origin, we will take CB as Xaxis and CD as Yaxis.
Then, coordinates of points, P, Q and R are (15, 3), (12, 2)and (9, 6) respectively.
Q5: What are the coordinates of P if D is taken as the origin?
(a) (−15, 5)
(b) (15, 5)
(c) (15, 7)
(d) (15, 3)
Ans: (a)
Explanation: When D is taken as origin, we will take DA as negative Xaxis and DC as positive Yaxis.
Then coordinates of point P is (−15, 5).
All of the persons know that smoking is injurious to health. So, college students decided to make a campaign. To raise social awareness about hazards of smoking, school decided to start "NO SMOKING" campaign. Some students are asked to prepare campaign banners in the shape of triangle as shown in the figure:
Based on the above information, give the answer of the following questions:

Explanation: The coordinates of the vertices Q and R are (2, 3) and (9, 3)respectively.
∴ Midpoint of Q and
Q2: The distance between P and R is:
(a) 3 units
(b) 3.5units
(c) 3√5 units
(d) 5√5 units
Ans: (c)
Explanation: The coordinates of the vertices P and R are (6, 9)and (9, 3)respectively.
Q3: The area of the triangle PQR is:
(a) 21 sq. units
(b) 35 sq. units
(c) 42 sq, units
(d) 45 sq, units
Ans: (a)
Explanation: The coordinates of the vertices P, Q and R(6, 9), (2, 3)and (9, 3) respectively.
Now, base of the
and height of the ΔPQR = Perpendicular distance from the vertex P to the base QR = (9 − 3) = 6 units.
∴ Area of
Q4: The point on Xaxis, which is equidistant from points Q and R is:

(b) (5, 0)
(c) (6, 0)
(d) (5, 3)
Ans: (a)
Explanation:

(b) (6, 5)
(c) (17/3, 4)
(d) (17/3, 5)
Ans: d
Explanation: ∴ Centroid of the
SLV3 was successfully launched on July 18, 1980 from Sriharikota Range (SHAR), when Rohini Satellite, RS1, was placed in orbit, thereby making India the sixth member of an exclusive club of spacefaring nations.
SLV3 employed an open loop guidance (with stored pitch programme) to steer the vehicle in flight along a predetermined trajectory. The successful culmination of the SLV3 project showed the way to advanced launch vehicle projects such as the Augmented Satellite Launch Vehicle (ASLV), Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Students of ClassXth made a mathematical model of a rocket as shown in the figure below:
Based on the above information give the answer of the following questions:
Q1: The coordinates of the point A are:
(a) (4,9)
(b) (5,9)
(c) (92,9)
(d) (4,8)
Ans: (c)
Explanation: As the distance of point A is 9/2 units from the Yaxis and 9 units from the Xaxis, its coordinates are
x = 9/2, y = 9 or (9/2, 9)
Q2: The type of triangle ABC is:
(a) equilateral triangle
(b) isosceles triangle
(c) scalene triangle
(d) right triangle
Ans: (b)
Explanation:
As, two sides AB and AC are equal, it is an isosceles triangle.
Moreover, BC2 ≠ AB2 + AC2
∴ ABC is not a right triangle.
