**Answer each of the following questions either in one word or one sentence or as per requirement of the questions :**

**Question 1.**

**Define an identity.**

**Solution:**

An identity is an equation which is true for all values of the variable (s) involved.

**Question 2.
**

**What is the value of (1 – cos**

^{2}θ) cosec^{2}θ?**Solution:**

**Question 3.
**

**What is the value of (1 + cot**

^{2}θ) sin^{2}θ ?**Solution:**

(1 + cot

^{2}θ) sin

^{2}θ = cosec

^{2}sin

^{2}θ {1 + cot

^{2}θ = cosec

^{2}θ}

= (cosec θ sin θ)

^{2}= (l)

^{2}= 1 (∵ sin θ cosec θ=1)

**Question 4. **

**Solution:**

**Question 5.
**

**If sec θ + tan θ = x, write the value of sec θ – tan θ in terms of x.**

**Solution:**

sec θ+ tan θ = x

We know that

sec

^{2}θ – tan

^{2}θ=1 .

⇒ (sec θ + tan θ) (sec θ – tan θ) = 1 {a

^{2}– b

^{2}= (a + b) (a – b)}

⇒ x (sec θ – tan θ) = 1

⇒ sec θ – tan θ = \(\frac { 1 }{ x }\)

**Question 6.
**

**If cosec θ – cot θ = α, write the value of cosec θ + cot α.**

**Solution:**

cosec θ – cot θ = α

We know that,

cosec

^{2 }θ – cot

^{2 }θ=1

⇒ (cosec θ – cot θ) (cosec θ + cot θ) = 1

⇒ a (cosec θ + cot θ) = 1 {a

^{2}– b

^{2}= (a + b) (a – 6)}

⇒ cosec θ + cot θ = 1/α

**Question 7.
**

**Write the value of cosec**

^{2}(90° – θ) – tan^{2}θ^{ }**Solution:**

**Question 8.
**

**Write the value of sin A cos (90° – A) + cos A sin (90° – A)**

**Solution:**

**Question 9.**

**Solution:**

**Question 10.
**

**If x = a sin θ and y = b cos θ, what is the value of b**

^{2}x^{2}+ a^{2}y^{2}?**Solution:**

x = a sin θ, y = b cos θ

**Question 11.
**

**If sin θ = \(\frac { 4 }{ 5 }\), What is the value of cot θ + cosec θ ?**

**Solution:**

**Question 12.
**

**What is the value of 9 cot**

^{2 }θ-9 cosec^{2 }θ?**Solution:**

9 cot

^{2 }θ – 9 cosec

^{2 }θ

= -(9cosec

^{2 }θ – 9cot

^{2 }θ)

= -9 (cosec

^{2 }θ – cot

^{2}θ) = -9 x 1

= -9 {∵ cosec

^{2 }θ – cot

^{2}θ=1}

**Question 13.**

**Solution:**

**Question 14.**

**Solution:**

**Question 15.
**

**What is the value of (1 + tan**

^{2}θ) (1 – sin θ) (1 + sin θ) ?**Solution:**

**Question 16.
**

**If cos A = \(\frac { 7 }{ 25 }\), find the value of tan A +**

*cot A. (C.B.S.E. 2008)*

**Solution:**

**Question 17.
**

**If sin θ = \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\), then find the value of 2 cot**

^{2}θ + 2. (C.B.S.E. 2009)**Solution:**

**Question 18.
**

**If cos θ = \(\frac { 3 }{ 4 }\), then find the value of 9 tan**

^{2}θ + 9.**Solution:**

**Question 19.
**

**If sec**

^{2 }θ (1 + sin θ) (1 – sin θ) = k, then find the value of k. (C.B.S.E. 2009)**Solution:**

**Question 20.
**

**If cosec**

^{2 }θ (1 + cos θ) (1 – cos θ) = λ, then find the value of λ.**Solution:**

cosec

^{2 }θ (1 + cos θ) (1 – cos θ) = λ

⇒ cosec

^{2}θ (1 – cos

^{2}θ) = λ {(a + b) (a – b) = a

^{1}– b

^{2})}

⇒ cosec

^{2}θ x sin θ = λ (1 – cos

^{2}θ = sin

^{2}θ)

⇒ 1 = λ (sin θ cosec θ=1)

∴ λ = 1

**Question 21.
**

**If sin**

^{2}θ cos^{2}θ (1 + tan^{2}θ) (1 + cot^{2}θ) = λ, then find the value of λ.**Solution:**

sin

^{2}θ cos

^{2}θ (1+ tan

^{2}θ) (1 + cot

^{2}θ) = λ

sin

^{2}θ cos

^{2}θ (sec

^{2}θ) (cosec

^{2}θ) = λ

**Question 22.
**

**Solution:**

**Question 23.
**

**If cosec θ = 2x and cot θ = \(\frac { 2 }{ x }\), find the value of 2 ( x**

^{2}– \(\frac { 1 }{ x2 }\) [CBSE 2010]**Solution:**

**Question 24.
