**Solution of Sample Paper**

**Section – A**

1. Given that ∠SPT = 120°

or, ∠OPS = 120° / 2 = 60°

(as OP bisects ZSPT) ½

Also, ∠PSO = 90° (as radius ⊥ tangent) ½

∴ In right triangle POS,

cos 60° = PS/OP

or, 1/2 = PS/OP

or, OP = 2PS. Hence Proved. 1

Let the length of cylindrical wire be h the

OR

Given, PA = PB ½

or, ∠PAB= ∠PBA = 60° ½

∴ APAB is an equilateral triangle. ½

Hence, AB = PA = 5 cm. ½

**Detailed Solution:**

Given, AP and BP are tangents with centre O.

½

Given AP = 5 cm

∴ AP = BP = 5 cm

(∴ Tangents are equal from external point P)

In ΔΑΡΒ,

∠ PAB = ∠PBA (Isosceles property)

∴ ∠PAB + ∠PBA + ∠APB = 180° (Angle sum property of a triangle)

⇒ 2 ∠PAB+ 60° = 180°

⇒ ∠PAB = 60°

i.e., ∠PAB= ∠PBA = ∠APB (each 60°) ½

So, △APB is an equilateral triangle.

∴ AP = BP = AB = 5 cm (Sides are equation in an equilateral triangle)

Hence, the length of chord AB is 5 cm. 1

2. Volume of spherical ball of radius 6 cm = 3 x volume of spherical balls of radius ‘r’ cm

OR

Given, volume of copper = 6 m³

Radius of cylindrical wire (r) = 2 m

Volume of copper = Volume of cylindrical wire 1

6 m³ = π(2)²h

h = 0.48 m 1

3.

4. (a) There are three measures of central tendency

Mean, Median and mode 1

(b) According to the empirical relationship between mean, median and mode..

2 Mean = 3 Median – Mode

or Mode = 3 Median – 2 Mean

= 3(138.57) – 2(145.20)

= 415.71 – 290.40

= 125.31 1

5. Let two parts be x and 27 – x.

The sum of reciprocals of both parts = 3/20

⇒ (x-15) (x – 12) = 0 1

⇒ x = 12 or 15.

Hence, The two parts are 12 and 15. 1

6. Let ‘L’ be the length of string

From the figure, BC = 108 m, ∠A = 60°

∠B = 90°

**Section – B**

7. Given, first term, a = 5 and last term, l = a_{n} = 45 ½

Given given, sum S_{n} = 400

So, n = 16 1

Now, n^{th} terms of an A.P.,

a_{n} = a + (n − 1)d

45 = 5 + (16 – 1)d

40 = 15d

⇒ d = 8/3 1

Hence, the number of terms and common difference are 16 and 8/3.

8. Let first odd integer = x

second odd integer = x + 2 and

third odd integer = x + 4

According to the question,

(x)² + (x + 2)² + (x + 4)² = 371 1

or x² + x² + 4 + 4x + x² + 16 + 8x = 371

or 3x² + 12x + 20 = 371

or 3x² + 12x – 351 = 0

or x² + 4x – 117 = 0 1

or x² + 13x – 9x – 117 = 0

or x(x +13) – 9 (x + 13) = 0

or (x + 13) (x – 9) = 0

or x = -13

or x = 9

∴ x is odd positive integer so – 13 is rejected.

Therefore, the numbers are 9, 11, 13. 1

9. A vertical tower is surmounted by flag staff.

Distance between observer and the tower DC = 90

Therefore, the height of tower is 51.96 m and the height of flag staff = 38.04 m. 1

OR

Height of the electric pole = 21 m = AB

1

The angle made by steel wire with ground (horizontal) θ = 60°

Let length of wire = L = AC

So, from the figure formed we have ABC as a right triangle.

Hence, Length of the wire (L) = 14√3 m. 1

**Steps of construction:**

1. Draw a circle with centre O and radius 3.5 cm.

2. Draw any radius OC.

3. Construct ∠COB = 180° – 120° = 60°

4. Draw XB ⊥ OB and CX ⊥ OC

5. Thus XB and XC are the required tangents which are intersecting at X at an angle of 120°. 1

**Section – C**

11.

Substituting the value of x in equation (i),

y = 24 – 9 = 15

Hence, x = 9 and y = 15. 1

OR

= 40 + 4.70

= 44.70 2

12. **Given :** A rectangle ABCD circumscribe a circle which touches the circle at P, Q, R, S.

**To Prove:** ABCD is a square.

**Proof:** As tangents from external point are equal.

AP = AS …(1) ½

PB = BQ …(2) ½

DR = DS …(3) ½

RC = QC …(4) ½

Adding eq. (1), (2), (3) and (4), we get

On AP + PB + DR + RC = AS + BQ + DS + QC

AB + CD = AD + BC

2AB = 2BC 1

[Opposite sides of a rectangle are equal]

∴ AB = BC

Tense, adjacent sides are equal so ABCD is a square.

13. (i) For cuboid,

Length = 12 cm, breadth = 8 cm and height = 4.5 cm

∴ Volume of cuboid = Length x Breadth

= 12 x 8 x 4.5

= 432 cm³. 1

(ii) For conical depression,

Radius, (r) = 0.6 cm

And Depth (h) = 2.1 cm

∴ Volume of conical depression

= (1/3)πr^{2}h 1

= 1/3 x 22/7 x 0.6 x 0.6 x 2.1

= 0.792 cm^{3} 1
