Subjects:Class X Maths 1. A circle of radius 2 cm touches a circle of radius 10 cm internally. The length of a tangent segment drawn from the centre of
the larger circle to the smaller circle is :

(A). (C).

cm cm

(B). (D).

cm cm

Correct Answer

C
Let the circle with radius 2 cm have centre Q and circle with radius 10 cm have centre P. Both the circles touch each other internally at T and the tangent from P to the smaller circle touches it at S. Now, PQ + QT = PT

Explanation

QS = QT = 2 cm.

are opposite in sign, the root with the greater absolute value being negative ?

(A). (C).

a and c have the same sign a and b have the same sign

(B). (D).

a, b and c are all negative c is necessarily positive

Correct Answer

C
As the roots have different signs their product must be negative. (c/a) must be negative.

Explanation As the one with the larger absolute value is negative, hence sum is negative
(-b/a) is negative b, a same sign. (Marks: 3.0, Negative Marks : 0.0).

Subjects:Class X Maths 11. An ant starts from the top rim of the cylinder section of a pipe and reaches a point directly below its starting point
after making three complete revolutions around the pipe. The distance traveled by the ant if the height of the cylinder is 24 cm and radius of the pipe is cm is :

(A). (C).

30 cm 100 cm

(B). (D).

20 cm 120 cm

Correct Answer

A
The surface area of a cylinder will become a rectangle on cutting along its height. The path on which the ant has travelled is shown in the figure. The height of the cylinder is trisected, dividing the rectangle into 3 equal smaller rectangles. The height of each right angled triangle part is 8 cm and the base is 6 cm. So, the hypotenuse will be 10 cm. The distance travelled is 30 cm

12. 9 consecutive integers, each having two digits are selected. On reversing each of these integers we get two-digit

integers. However, on reversing the digits the average increases by 36. The number of prime numbers in the first sequence of integers is :

(C).

(D).

Cannot be determined

Correct Answer

C
Sum of integers with digits reversed - Sum of original integers = As upon reversing all digits we get two-digit integer the first sequence of integers does not consist of any integers with zero in the units place. Let the integers be : 10a + 1, 10a+ 2, . . . . . . . ., 10a + 9.

Explanation After reversing the digits, the integers will be


10 +

a, 20 + a, 30 + a, . . . . . . . , 90 + a
We have

a = 1.
