Part – A
Section-I

Section I has 16 questions of 1 mark each. Internal choice is provided in 5 questions.

Question 1.
Express 5005 as a product of its prime factors.
Solution :
5005 = 5 × 7 × 11 ×13 Question 2.
Find the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial 6x2 – 3 – 7x
Solution :
Here, p (x) = 6x2 – 3 – 7x = 6x2 – 7x – 3
= 6x2 – 9x + 2x – 3 = 3x (2x – 3) + 1  (2x – 3) +1 (2x- 1)
(2x – 3) (3x + 1)
=$$6\left(x-\frac{3}{2}\right)\left[x-\left(-\frac{1}{3}\right)\right]$$
∴ Zeroes of p (x) are $$\frac{3}{2} \text { and }-\frac{1}{3}$$

Question 3.

6x – 3y + 10 = 0
and 2x-y + 9 = 0 are consistent or inconsistent.
Solution : .

Question 5.
Two numbers are in the ratio 21 : 17. If their HCF is 5, find the numbers. 1
Solution :
Let numbers be 21x and 17 x So, common factors of 21 x and 17 x = x
Also, HCF = 5
⇒ x = 5
∴ Numbers are 21 x 5 and 17 x 5 i.e.: 105 and 85.

Question 6.
In a circle of radius 21 cm, an arc subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. Find the area of sector formed by the arc.      OR
A horse is tied to a peg at one comer of a square shaped grass field of side 15 m by means of a 5 m long rope. Find the area of that part of the field in which the horse can graze.
Solution : OR
Length of the rope = Radius, r = 5 m
Angle of sector = 90°
Area of the field that can graze
$$=\frac{\pi r^{2} \theta}{360^{\circ}}=\frac{22}{7} \times \frac{5 \times 5 \times 90^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}$$
= 19.64 sq. m

Two friends Mohan and Sohan drive a car. The shaded portion of the given figure represents an area swept by the wiper of the car. If OA = 7 cm and AB = 21 cm then Mohan said that area swept by the wiper is 192.5 cm2. Is he right? Explain.
Solution :
Let r = 7 cm be the radius of the sector OAD and R = 7 + 21=28cm be the radius of sector OBC.
The area swept by the wiper = Area of the shaded portion = Area of the sector OBC – Area of the sector OAD
$$=\pi \mathrm{R}^{2} \frac{\theta}{360^{\circ}}-\pi r^{2} \frac{\theta}{360^{\circ}}$$ Question 9.

A metallic sphere of radius 4.2 cm is melted and recast into the shape of a cylinder of radius 6 cm. Find the height of the cylinder.
Solution : Let the height of the cylinder = h
Radius of the cylinder (R) = 6 cm
∴ Volume of the cylinder = πR2 h = n x (6)2 x h
Since, Volume of the cylinder = Volume of the sphere Question 11.
Find the mode for the frequency distribution table

 Class 0-10 10-20 20-30 30-40 40-50 Total Frequency 8 16 36 34 6 100

Solution :
The highest frequency is 36, which belongs to class 20 – 30.
So, it will be a modal class. Question 12.
Draw a circle and two lines parallel to a given line such that one is a tangent and the other a secant to the circle.
Solution :
We have the required figure.
Here, l is the given line and a circle with centre O is drawn. The line PT is drawn which is parallel to l and tangent to the circle.
Also, AB is drawn parallel to line l and is a secant to the circle.

Question 13.
For what value of p, the pair of linear equations
px = 2y
2x – y + 5 = 0 has unique solution?
OR
For what value of k, does the given equation (k + 1 )x2 – 2(k – 1 )x + 1 = 0 have real and equal roots?
Solution :
We have:
px = 2y ⇒ px – 2y = 0
2x—y + 5=0 ⇒  2x-y = -5 OR
(k + 1 )x2 – 2(k – 1) x + 1 = 0 ⇒ a = k + 1, b = -2(k – 1), c = 1
For equal roots, b2 – 4ac = 0 ⇒ [-2(k – 1)]2 – 4 x (k + 1) x 1=0
⇒ 4(k – 1)2 – 4{k + 1) = 0 ⇒ 4{k2 + 1 – 2k) -4k-4 = 0
⇒ 4k2 + 4 – 8k – 4k – 4 = 0 ⇒ 4k2-12k = 0 ⇒ 4k(k – 3) = 0
Either  4k = 0 ⇒ k = 0 or k- 3 = 0 = k = 3
Hence k= 0 or k = 3.

Question 14.
Two dice are thrown at the same time and the product of numbers appearing on them is noted. Find the probability that the product is a prime number.
OR
Two dice are thrown at the same time. Find the probability of getting different numbers on the dice.
Solution :
Now for the product of the numbers on the dice is a prime number can be in these possible ways—(1, 2), (2, 1), (1, 3), (3, 1), (5, 1), (1, 5)
So, number of possible ways = 6
∴ Required probability $$=\frac{6}{36}=\frac{1}{6}$$
OR
Since the two dice are thrown simultaneously.
Total number of outcomes = 6 x 6 = 36
Number of outcomes for getting same numbers on both dice = 6
⇒ P (same numbers) = $$\frac{6}{36}=\frac{1}{6}$$
Now, P (different numbers) + P (same numbers) = 1
⇒ P (different numbers) = 1 – P (same numbers)
$$=1-\frac{1}{6}=\frac{5}{6}$$

Question 15.
A ladder long just reaches the top of a vertical wall. If the ladder makes an angle of with the wall find the height of the wall
Solution : Question 16.
It is given that a group of 3 students, the probability of 2 students not having the same birthday is 0.992. What is the probability that the 2 students have the same birthday?
Solution :
We have P(E) + P(not E) = 1 ⇒ P(E) + 0.992 = 1
∴ P(E) = 1 – 0.992 = 0.008.

(ii) (c): 10 km
AC2 + BC2 = AB2 ⇒ (2x)2 + 22[x + 7]2 = (26)2
⇒ 4x2 + 4(x2 + 14x + 49) = 676
⇒  x2 + 1x – 60 = 0
⇒  (x + 12)(x – 5) = 0
x = -12 or 5(x = -12 neglected as distance cannot be negative).
AC = 2x = 2 x 5 = 10 km.

(iii) (d): 24 km
x = 5
BC = 2(x + 7)
= 2(5 + 7) = 24 km

(iv) (b): 8 km
AC + CB = 10+ 24 = 34 km  AB = 26 km
Difference = 34 km – 26 km = 8 km

(v) (c): 60°
AC ⊥ BC ⇒∠C = 90°
∴ ∠A + ∠B = 90°
⇒ 30° + ∠B = 90°
∠B = 90° – 30° = 60°

(ii) (d) : 3
Since the graph v =f(x) crosses the x-axis at three different points. So, numbers of zeroes is 3.

(iii) (b): -5, -2, 2
Here graphy -fix) intersects the x-axis in (-5, 0), (-2, 0) and (2, 0). So, zeroes of f (x) are x-coordinate of these points.
∴ Zeroes of y(x) are -5, -2 and 2.

(iv) (a): x3 + 5x2 – 4x – 20
∵  Zeroes of f(x) are -5, -2 and 2.
So, factors of f(x) are (x + 5)(x + 2) and (x – 2)
∴ Expression of the polynomial
= (x + 5)(x + 2)(x – 2)
= x3 + 5x2 – 4x – 20.

(v) (c): 0
Put  x = -5 in /(x) = x3 + 5x2 – 4x – 20
⇒ A-5) = (-5)3 + 5(-5)2 – 4( 5) -20

∵  Tangents from an external point to a circle are equal,
∴ AP = AS
BP = BQ RC = QC DR = DS
⇒ (AP + PB) + (RC + DR) = (AS + DS) + (BQ + QC)
⇒ AB + CD = AD + BC
i.e., ABCD is a rhombus.

For cylindrical part:
We have, radius (r) = 52.5 m
Curved Surface area = 2πrh

For the conical part:
Slant height (l) = 53 m
Curved surface area = nπl
Area of the canvas = 2nπh + πrl = πr (2h + l) Question 32.

Solution : Question 33.
Find two numbers whose sum is 27 and product is 182.
OR
The two numbers differ by 2 and their product is 360. Find the numbers.
Solution :
Here, sum of the numbers is 27.
Let one of the numbers be x.
∴ Other number = 21 -x According to the condition,
Product of the numbers = 182 ⇒
⇒  x (27 – x) = 182
⇒ 27x – x2 = 182
⇒ -x2 + 27x – 182 = 0
⇒ x2 – 27x+ 182 = 0
⇒ x2 – 13x – 14x + 182 = 0 ∵ – 27 = (- 13) + (- 14) and (- 13) x (- 14)= 182
⇒ x(x- 13)- 14 (x- 13)= 0
Either x – 13 = 0 ⇒ x = 13
or x – 14 = 0 ⇒ x = 14
when first number is 13, then other number = 27-13 = 14
and when first number is 14 then other number is 27 – 14 = 13.
Thus, the required numbers are 13 and 14.
OR
Let the two numbers be x and x + 2 According to the questions,
x(x + 2) = 360
⇒ x2 + 2x = 360 ⇒ x2 + 2x – 360 = 0
Splitting the middle term, we get
x2 + 20x -18x – 360 = 0 ⇒ x(x + 20) – 18(x + 20) = 0
⇒(x + 20)(x — 18) = 0 ⇒ x = -20 or x = 18
When x = -20, x + 2 = -20 + 2 = -18
When x = 18,x + 2 = 18 + 2 = 20
Hence, the required numbers are -20, -18 or 18, 20.
