1. Question
1 pointsIn ΔABC,∠B = 90°, AB = 18cm and BC = 24cm. Calculate the length of AC.
CorrectExplanation:
By Pythagoras Theorem, AC^{2} = AB^{2}+ BC^{2}
= 18^{2} + 24^{2}
= 324 + 576
= 900
AC = √900
= 30cmIncorrectExplanation:
By Pythagoras Theorem, AC^{2} = AB^{2}+ BC^{2}

2. Question
1 pointsA square has the perimeter 40cm. What is the sum of the diagonals?
CorrectLet ‘a’ be the length of the side of the square ∎ABCD and AC is a diagonal of the square.
Perimeter of square ∎ABCD = 4 a units
4a = 40cm
a = 4
40 = 10cm
We know that in a square each angle is 90° and the diagonals are equal.
In ΔABC, AC^{2} = AB^{2} + BC^{2} = 10^{2} + 10^{2} = 100 + 100 = 200
∴AC = √200= 10√2 = 10 × 1.414 = 14.14cm
Diagonal AC = Diagonal BD
Hence, Sum of the diagonals = 14.14 + 14.14 = 28.28cmIncorrectLet ‘a’ be the length of the side of the square ∎ABCD and AC is a diagonal of the square.

4. Question
1 pointsIn a parallelogram, the lengths of adjacent sides are 12cm and 14cm respectively. If the length of one diagonal is 16cm, find the length of the other diagonal.
CorrectIn a parallelogram,
The sum of the squares of the diagonals = 2 × (Sum of the squares of the two adjacent sides)
D_{1}^{2} + D_{2}^{2} = 2 (a^{2} + b^{2})
16^{2} + D_{2}^{2} = 2(12^{2} + 14^{2})
256 + D_{2}^{2} = 2(144 + 196)
D_{2}^{2} = 680 – 256 = 424
∴ D_{2} = √424 = 20.6cmIncorrectIn a parallelogram,

7. Question
1 pointsA 5100 cm^{2} trapezium has the perpendicular distance between the two parallel sides 60 m. If one of the parallel sides be 40 m then find the length of the other parallel side.
CorrectA = 1/2 (a + b)h
5100 = 1/2 (40 + b)×60
∴ b= 130 mIncorrectA = 1/2 (a + b)h
5100 = 1/2 (40 + b)×60
∴ b= 130 mUnattemptedA = 1/2 (a + b)h

1 pointsWhat is the area of a rectangle if it is 23 meters 7 decimeters long and 14 meters and 4 decimeters 8 centimeters wide?
CorrectExplanation:
Length of the rectangle (l) = 23.7 meters
Breadth of the rectangle (b) = 14.48 meters
∴ Area of the rectangle (A) = (l × b) = (23.7 × 14.48) meter^{2}
= 343.18 meter^{2}IncorrectExplanation:
Length of the rectangle (l) = 23.7 meters
Breadth of the rectangle (b) = 14.48 meters
∴ Area of the rectangle (A) = (l × b) = (23.7 × 14.48) meter^{2}
= 343.18 meter^{2}UnattemptedExplanation:
Length of the rectangle (l) = 23.7 meters
Breadth of the rectangle (b) = 14.48 meters

1 pointsHow many paving stones each measuring 2.5 meter × 2 meter are required to pave a rectangular courtyard 30 meter long and 16.5 meter wide?
CorrectNumber of tiles required = (length × breadth of courtyard)/(length × breadth of each tile)
= (30 × 16.5 )/(2.5 × 2)
= 99IncorrectNumber of tiles required = (length × breadth of courtyard)/(length × breadth of each tile)
= (30 × 16.5 )/(2.5 × 2)

11. Question
1 pointsIf the length of rectangle increases by 9% and the breadth of that rectangle decrease by 7%, then find the % change in area.
Correct% change in area = (% Change in length)+ (% Change in breadth)+ ((% change in length)× (% change in breadth))/100%
∴ % change in area = 9 – 7 + (9 × (7))/90 = 2 – (63/100) = 1.37%
Since there is +ve sign, the area increased by 1.37%.
Incorrect% change in area = (% Change in length)+ (% Change in breadth)+ ((% change in length)× (% change in breadth))/100%
∴ % change in area = 9 – 7 + (9 × (7))/90 = 2 – (63/100) = 1.37%
Since there is +ve sign, the area increased by 1.37%.
Unattempted% change in area = (% Change in length)+ (% Change in breadth)+ ((% change in length)× (% change in breadth))/100%
∴ % change in area = 9 – 7 + (9 × (7))/90 = 2 – (63/100) = 1.37%
Since there is +ve sign, the area increased by 1.37%.
