2. The question paper consists of 30 questions divided into four sections - A, B, C and D. Section A comprises of ten questions of 1 mark each, Section B comprises of five questions of 2marks each, Section C comprises of ten questions of 3 marks each and Section D comprises of five questions of 6marks each.
3. All questions in Section A are to be answered in one word, one sentence or as per the exact requirement of the question.
There is no overall choice. However, an internal choice has been provided in one question of 2 marks each, three questions of 3 marks each and two questions of 6 marks each. You have to attempt only one of the alternatives in all such questions.
4. In question on construction, the drawing should be neat and as per the given measurements.
5. Use of calculators is not permitted.
Q1 :

Write a rational number between and.


Answer :

The approximate values of and are:

= 1.414

= 1.732

We know that the decimal representation of a rational number may be either terminating or non-terminating repeating. Since the terminating decimal 1.5 lies between 1.414 and 1.732, 1.5 is a rational number between and.

Q2 :

Write the number of zeroes of the polynomial y= f(x) whose graph is given in figure.


Answer :

The graph of the polynomial y= f(x) intersects x-axis at three points. Thus, the polynomial y= f(x) has three zeroes.

Q3 :

Is x= −2 a solution of the equation x2− 2x+ 8 = 0?


Answer :

Onsubstituting x= −2 in the L.H.S. of the given equation, we obtain

x2− 2x+ 8 = (−2)2− 2(−2) + 8

= 4 + 4 + 8

= 16 0

Thus, x= −2 is not a solution of the given equation.
