2. A fly is trapped inside a hollow cube. It moves from A to B along the edges of the cube, taking the shortest possible route.

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

Solution

1. B

Geometry Problems

It is clear that o
 Geometry ProblemsAT = 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

Geometry Problems= 360 – 140

[o, calculated earlier]

Geometry ProblemsGeometry Problems = 220/2 = 1100

2. C

Geometry Problems

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

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

3.  A

Geometry Problems

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

Since Geometry ProblemsDCQ and Geometry ProblemsBQE are similar,

Geometry Problems

or Ar(Geometry ProblemsBQE) = 36 x 4/9 = 16

4.    B
     Geometry Problems

5. D

Here as given that PQ = R

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

Geometry Problems

6. B

Geometry Problems

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

7. E

Geometry Problems

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

Geometry Problems 0 . Now in Geometry ProblemsBCF , 350 + (x+900) + y = 1800

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

8. B

Geometry Problems

Geometry Problems

9. A

Geometry Problems

Similarly, Geometry Problems

Geometry Problems

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.
