Multiple choice Questions

Question 3

ABCD is a parallelogram and AP and CQ are perpendiculars from vertices A and C on diagonal

BD

Which of the following is true based on given information

a)

b)

c)

d)

Solution

All are correct

In Triangle and

Angle P= Angle

Alternate interior angles of

So AAS congruence

Also as they are congruent, we get and

Now let’s see the triangles and

Angle P= Angle

Alternate interior angles of

So

Question 4

The angles of the quadrilateral are in the ratio 2:5:4:1?

Which of the following is true?

a) Largest angle in the quadrilateral is

b) Smallest angle is

c) The second largest angle in the quadrilateral is

d) None of these

Solution (a) and (b)

Angles are

Now

Or

Angles are

Question 5

Two adjacent angles in a parallelogram are in the ration 2:4. Find the values?

a)

b)

c)

d) None of the above

Solution (e)

Adjacent angles

are adjacent angles

Question 6

ABCD is a trapezium with and?

Find the area of the ABCD

a)

b)

c)

d) None of these

Solution (a)

B

BC is the altitude between the two parallel sides AB and DC

So Area of trapezium will be given by

Question 7

PQRS is a quadrilateral whose diagonal bisect each other at right angles

a) PQRS is a Square

b) PQRS is a rectangle

c) PQRS is a rhombus

d) None of these

Solution (c)

Question 8

ABCD is a trapezium where. BD is the diagonal and E is the midpoint of AD. A line is draw from point E parallel to AB intersecting BC at F. Which of these is true?

a)

b)

c)

d) None of these

Solution (a)

Let’s call the point of intersection at diagonal as G

Then in triangle DAB

and E is the midpoint of DA, So by converse of mid point theorem,

G is the midpoint of BD

Now in triangle DBC

G is the midpoint of DB

So by converse of mid-point theorem

F is the midpoint of BC

Question 9

ABCD is a rectangle and P, Q, R and S are mid-points of the sides AB. BC, CD and DA respectively

a) PQRS is a rectangle

b) PQRS is a parallelogram

c) PQRS is a rhombus

d) None of these

Solution (C)

a) 80

b) 90

c) 45

d) None of the above

Solution (b)
