Q1 :

The perimeter (in cm) of a square circumscribing a circle of radius acm, is

A. 8 a

B. 4 a

C. 2 a

D. 16 a


Answer :

The radius of the circle is given as acm.

Diameter of the circle = 2 × acm = 2acm

Side of the circumscribing square = Diameter of the circle = 2acm

Perimeter of the circumscribing square = 4 × 2acm = 8acm

The correct answer is A.

Q2 :

If A and B are the points (−6, 7) and (−1, −5) respectively, then the distance 2AB is equal to

A. 13

B.26

C.169

D.238


Answer :

The given points are A (−6, 7) and B (−1, −5).

2AB = 2 × 13 = 26

Thus, the distance 2AB is 26 units.

The correct answer is B.

Q3 :

If the common differences of an A.P. is 3, then a 20a 15 is

A. 5

B. 3

C. 15

D. 20


Answer :

Let the first term of the A.P. be a.

The correct answer is C.

Q4 :

If is the mid-point of the line-segment joining the points A (−6, 5) and B(−2, 3), then the value ofais
