10. If A (–2, –1), B(a, 0), C(4, b) and D(1, 2) are the vertices of a parallelogram, find the values of a + b.

A. 3
B. 4
C. 5
D. 6
E. 8


1. B

It is clear that o
 AT = AM and BR = BM
(Length of the tangents from an external point)
Hence, angle at the centre of the circle must be equal.
So We have to find

= 360 – 140

[o, calculated earlier]

= 220/2 = 1100

2. C

As cube shown in the figure where to reach from A to B by the shortest route will be 2x (if x be the length of the side of the cube), and the longest route from B to A will be 6x.

Hence, 2x + 6x = 5040;  x = 5040/8 = 360m

 Area of a face = x2 = (630)2 = 396900 m2

3.  A

It is given that 3BE = 2DC or BE/DC = 2/3

Since DCQ and BQE are similar,

or Ar(BQE) = 36 x 4/9 = 16

4.    B

5. D

Here as given that PQ = R

Let us assume r be the radius of the inner circle.

6. B

Interior angle DCB = 3600 –b. Now, in quadrilateral ABCD, a + x + 3600 –b +c = 3600 => x = b – a - c.

7. E

 Angles drawn on the same arc and in the same segment are equal).

0 . Now in BCF , 350 + (x+900) + y = 1800

=> x + y =1800 - 1250 = 550.

8. B

9. A


10. B

We know that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other. So, the coordinates of the mid-point of AC are same as the coordinates of the mid-point of BD.
