### Tick (✔) the correct answer in each of the following

1. From the given options, which parallelogram two diagonals are not necessarily equal ………………..

(a) square
(b) rectangle
(c) isosceles trapezium
(d) rhombus

(d) rhombus

Explanation: rhombus two diagonals are not necessarily equal.

2. A rhombus has diagonals of 16 cm and 12 cm. Find the length of each side?

(a) 8cm
(b) 12cm
(c) 10cm
(d) 9cm

(c) 10cm

Explanation:
Given that One diagonal is 16 and another 12 then half of both is 8 and 6. Diagonal of a rhombus bisect at 90º.
By pythogaurus theorem
h² = 8² + 6²
h² = 64 + 36=100
h = √100 = 10

Side = 10

3. Two adjacent angles of a parallelogram are (4b + 15)° and (2b – 10)°. The value of b is ………………. .

(a) 29.16
(b) 32
(c) 42
(d) 36

(a) 29.16

Explanation: sum of the adjacent angles of parallelogram=180
4b + 15 + 2b – 10=180
6b + 5 = 180
6b =180 – 5
6b = 175
b = 175/6

b = 29.16

4. From the given options, which parallelogram two diagonals do not necessarily intersect at right angles ………………..

(a) rhombus
(b) rectangle
(c) kite
(d) parallelogram

(d) parallelogram

Explanation: The diagonals do not necessarily intersect at right angles in a parallelogram.

5. The length and breadth of a rectangle are in the ratio 8 : 6. If the diagonal measures 50 cm. Find the perimeter of a rectangle?

(a) 800 cm
(b) 700 cm
(c) 600 cm
(d) 560 cm

(b) 700 cm

Explanation: Let m be the common multiple.
Length = 8m
According to Pythagoras theorem,
(8m)² + (6m)²=(50)²
64m²+ 36m² = 2500
100m² = 2500
m² = 2500/100
m = 25
So, Length = 8m = 200 cm
Breadth = 6m = 150 cm
Perimeter = 2 (l × b)
= 2 (200 + 150)
= 700 cm

So, perimeter of rectangle is 700 cm.

6. The bisectors of any two adjacent angles of a parallelogram intersect at ………………..

(a) 90°
(b) 30°
(c) 60°
(d) 45°

(a) 90°

Explanation: The bisectors of any two adjacent angles of a parallelogram intersect at 90°.

7. If an angle of a parallelogram is 2/3 of its adjacent angle find the angle of a parallelogram.

(a) 72°
(b) 54°
(c) 108°
(d) 81°

(a) 72°

Explanation: Let m and n be the adjacent angles of a parallelogram.
Now, as we know that adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary
Therefore, the sum of angles a and b will be 180º.
m + n = 180º
One angle is 2/3rd of the other.
m = 2/3 . n
2/3 . n + n = 180º
5/3 . n = 180º
n = 108º
m = 2/3 . 108º = 72º

8. The diagonals do not necessarily bisect the interior angles at the vertices in a ………………..

(a) square
(b) rectangle
(c) rhombus
(d) all of these

(b) rectangle

Explanation: The diagonals do not necessarily bisect the interior angles at the vertices in a rectangle.

9. In a square PQRS, PQ = (3a + 5) cm and RS = (2a – 2) cm. Find the value of a?

(a) 4
(b) 5
(c) 7
(d) 8

(c) 7

Explanation: We know all the sides of a square are equal.
3a + 5 = (2a – 2)
3a – 2a = 5 + 2
a = 7

Hence, solved

10. If one angle if a parallelogram is 24º less than twice the smallest angle then the largest angle if parallelogram is?

(a) 68°
(b) 112°
(c) 102°
(d) 176°
