NCERT Solutions: Basic Geometrical Ideas (Exercise 4.4, 4.5 & 4.6)

# NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 4 - Basic Geometrical Ideas (Exercise 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6)

### Exercise 4.4 (Old NCERT)

Ques 1: Draw a rough sketch of a triangle ABC. Mark a point P in its interior and a point Q in its exterior. Is the point A in its exterior or in its interior?
Ans:

A is neither interior of the figure nor exterior of triangle. It is a vertex
Ques 2:

(a) Identify three triangles in the figure.
(b) Write the names of seven angles.
(c) Write the names of six line segments.
(d) Which two triangles have ∠B as common?
Ans: (a) The three triangles are: ΔABC, ΔABD, ΔADC
(c) Line segments are:
(d) Triangles having common ∠B: ΔABC, ΔABD,

### Exercise 4.5 (Old NCERT)

Ques 1: Draw a rough sketch of a quadrilateral PQRS. Draw its diagonals. Name them. Is the meeting point of the diagonals in the interior or exterior of the quadrilateral?
Ans:

Diagonal PR and diagonal SQ meet at O, which is inside the quadrilateral.

Ques 2: Draw a rough sketch of a quadrilateral KLMN. State,
(a) Two pairs of opposite sides.
(b) Two pairs of opposite angles.
(c) Two pairs of adjacent sides.
(d) Two pairs of adjacent angles.
Ans: (a) Pair of opposite sides: KL and MN, KN and LM
(b) Pair of opposite angles: ∠K and ∠M, ∠L and ∠N
(c) Pair of adjacent sides: KN and NM, KL and LM
(d) Pair of adjacent angles: ∠K and ∠N, ∠L and ∠M

Ques 3: Investigate:
Use strip and fasteners to make a triangle and a quadrilateral.
Try to push inward at any one vertex of the triangle. Do the same to the quadrilateral. Is the triangle distorted? Is the quadrilateral distorted? Is the triangle rigid?
Why is it that structures like electric towers make use of triangular shapes and not quadrilateral?
Ans: O is common to both the angles ∠AOC and ∠BOC.
No, the triangle is not distorted but the quadrilateral is distorted and also the triangle is rigid.
Structures like electric towers make use of triangular shape so that they could not be distorted and they could be rigid.

### Exercise 4.6 (Old NCERT)

Ques 1: From the figure, identify:

(a) The centre of circle
(c) a diameter
(d) a chord
(e) Two points in the interior
(f) a point in the exterior
(g) a sector
(h) a segment
Ans:

(a) O is the centre.
(b) Three radii: OA, OB and OC
(c) A diameter: AC
(d) A chord: ED
(e) Interior points: O, P
(f) Exterior point: Q
(g) A sector: OAB
(h) A segment: ED

Ques 2: (a) Is every diameter of a circle also a chord?
(b) Is every chord of circle also a diameter?
Ans: (a) Yes, every diameter of a circle is also a chord.
(b) No, every chord of a circle is not a diameter.

Ques 3: Draw any circle and mark:
(a) Its centre.
(c) A diameter.
(d) A sector.
Ans:

(a) Its centre is O.
(c) A diameter is AC.
(d) A sector OAB.

Ques 4: Say true or false:
(a) Two diameters of a circle will necessarily intersect.
(b) The centre of a circle is always in its interior.
Ans: (a) True
(b) True

## FAQs on NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 4 - Basic Geometrical Ideas (Exercise 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6)

 1. What are some basic geometric shapes?
Ans. Some basic geometric shapes are point, line, line segment, ray, angle, triangle, quadrilateral, circle, square, rectangle, and polygons.
 2. What is the difference between a line segment and a ray?
Ans. A line segment is a part of a line that has two endpoints, whereas a ray is a part of a line that has only one endpoint and extends infinitely in one direction.
 3. What is an acute angle?
Ans. An acute angle is an angle that measures less than 90 degrees.
 4. What are the properties of a rectangle?
Ans. A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles, opposite sides that are parallel and congruent, and diagonals that are congruent and bisect each other.
 5. What is a polygon?
Ans. A polygon is a closed figure made up of line segments that are joined together. It has three or more straight sides and angles.
