1).  Length of hall=100m
         Width of hall=80m
         Side of square design=HCF of 100 and 80.
        HCF of 100 and 80 is 20m
      ∴ Number of designs = (Area of floor)/ (Area of design)
         = (100m*80m)/ (20m*20m) =5*4=20
Answer: (c)

2). Length of rectangular park=98m
        Breadth of rectangular park=84m
d= diameter of the circle=breadth of park=84m
       ∴Radius of the circle= (Diameter/2) =84/2=42m
        Area of the circle=πr²=22/7*42*42=22*42*6=5544m²
       Now, area of the rectangle= (98*84)m²=8232m²
        Area beyond circle=Area of rectangle-Area of circle= (8232-5544)m²=2688m²
Answer: (a)

3). Area of the equilateral triangle= √3/4 side²
        Then, √3/4 side²= √3*484 cm²
        ∴ side²=484*4
         ∴ side=√484*4=22*2=44 cm
         Perimeter of the equilateral triangle=Circumference of the circle
       ∴ perimeter of equilateral triangle=3*side=3*44 cm=132 cm
    Circumference of the circle=132 cm
    We know, circumference of the circle=2πr
    Then, 2*(22/7)*r=132       ∴ r = (132*7)/ (22*2)   or, r=21 cm
     Area of circle=πr²= [(22/7)*21*21) cm²=1386 cm²
Answer: (a)


Diameters of frustum BC=36 cm
        ED=24 cm
        ∴Radius of frustum=d1/2, d2/2=36/2 cm, 24/2 cm =18 cm, 12 cm
         Slant height=10 cm
        R1=18 cm, R2=12 cm
        Total surface area of frustum=π [(R₁+R₂) l+R12+R22] =22/7[ (18+12)10+182+122]
         =22/7[30*10+324+144] =22/7[300+324+144] =22/7[768] = 2413.71 cm2
Answer: (d)

5). Radius of conical pot=18 cm
         Height of conical pot=75 cm
         Volume of conical pot=1/3πr²h
         =1/3*π*18*18*75 cm3
         Radius of cylindrical pot=15 cm
         Base area of cylindrical pot=πr² =π*15 cm *15 cm
         Height of liquid in the cylindrical pot
         = (Volume of liquid in conical pot)/ (Base area of cylindrical pot)
         = (1*π*18*18*75)/ (3*π*15*15) =36 cm
Answer: (a)

Diagonals of the rhombus are 18 cm and 24 cm respectively. AC=24 cm, BD=18 cm
      E is at the center of both diagonals
      Then, AE=1/2 AC=1/2*24 cm=12 cm=EC
       Again, DE=BE=1/2*18 cm=9 cm
      In right-angled triangle DEC
       DC²=DE²+EC²   or, DC²=9²+12²   or, DC²=81+144   or, DC²=225
       ∴DC=15 cm
      ∴Perimeter of rhombus=4*side=4*15 cm=60 cm
Answer: (b)

7). Given sec A=5/3=h/b
      p=√h²-b² =√25-9=√16=4                                               
     Now, (tan A+2cot A-3sin A)/ (4 sin A+5 sec A-2 tan A)
    = [(4/3) +2*(3/4)-3*(4/5)]/ [4*(4/5) +5*(5/3)-2*(4/3)]
    = [(4/3) + (3/2) – (12/5)]/ [(16/5) + (25/3) – (8/3)] = [(40+45-72)/30]/ [(48+125-40)/15]
    = [(85-72)/30]/ [(173-40)/15] = (13/30)/ (133/15) = (13/30) + (15*133) =13/266
Answer: (c)

8). Given value=16 cosec²a+25 sin²a = (16/sin² a) +25 sin² a= (4/sin a)² + (5 sin a)²
      [∵ a²+b²= (a-b)²+2ab]
= [(4/sin a)-5sin a]²+2*(4/sin a)*5 sin a =[(4-5 sin² a)/sin a]²+40
    For least value [(4-5sin²a)/sin a] should be zero.
   Hence the least value is 40.
Answer: (b)

9). Cot36° (cot54°.cos²+1/ (tan 54°.sec58°)
    =tan54° (cot54°.cos²+1/ (tan 54°.sec58°)
    [∵ tan θ=cot (90°-θ)]
    =tan54° [(cos²32°)/ (tan 54°) + (cos²58°)/ (tan 54°)]
    =tan54° [(cos²32°+sin²32°)/ (tan54°)]
    (∵ cos²θ+sin²θ=1)
    =tan 54°*(1/ tan54°) =1
Answer: (a)

10). Given angle=12°15´
      =12° (15/60)° =12°(1/4)° =(49/4)°
      = [(49*4)* (π/180°)]c
Answer: (a)

11). Let α and β be two angles
           Given α + β=105°    ……………..(ⅰ)
            α – β=π/2=90°/2=45°  …………..(ⅱ)
          By solving equations (ⅰ) and (ⅱ), we get
        ∴ a=75°,  b=30°
        Now, the value of greater angle in radians=75*(π/180) =5π/12 radian
Answer: (c)
