**Solution of Sample Paper**

**Section – A**

1. 20^{th} term from the end = 1 – ( n – 1 ) d ½

= 253 – 19 x 5 1

= 158 ½

**Detailed Solution : **

Given , A.P .: 3 , 8 , 13 , ……….. 253

Here , first term ( a ) = 3 , common difference ( d ) = 8 – 3 = 5 and last term ( l ) = 253 1

Then , 20^{th} term from the end of the A.P.

= l – ( n – 1 ) d

= 253 – ( 20 – 1 ) 5

= 253 – 95

= 158 1

OR

7a_{7} = 11a_{11}

⇒ 7 (a + 6d ) = 11 ( a + 10d ) 1

⇒ a + 17d = 0

∴ a_{18} = 0 1

**Detailed Solution : **

Given , 7a_{7} = 11a_{11}

∴ a_{n} = a + ( n – 1 ) d

Then , 7 [ a + ( 7 – 1 ) d ] = 11 [ a + ( 11 – 1 ) d ]

⇒ 7 ( a + 6d ) = 11 ( a + 10d )

⇒ 7a + 42d = 11a + 110 d

⇒ 11a – 7a = 42d – 110d

⇒ 4a = -68d

⇒ a = -17d 1

⇒ a + 17d = 0

i.e., a + ( 18 – 1 ) d = 0

Hence , a_{18} = 0 . 1

2. Total distance of the journey = 600 km

Let speed of fast train = x km / h ,

then speed of slow train = ( x – 10 ) km / h

According to question ,

Either , x = 50 or x = -40

∴ speed can not be negative .

So , the speed of fast train = 50 km / h ,

and the speed of slow train = 50 – 10 = 40 km / h . 1

3. Here , PQ = 6 cm , OP = OQ = 6 cm ( radii )

∴ PQ = OP = OQ

∠POQ = 60 ° ( angle of equilateral △ ) ½

∠OPT = ∠OQT = 90 ° ( radius ⊥ tangent )

∴ ∠PTQ + 90 ° + 90 ° + 60 ° = 360 ° ( angle sum property ) ½

∠PTQ = 120 ° 1

4. Diameter of well = 4 m

Radius of well , r = 2 m

Depth of well , h = 21 m ,

Volume of earth dug out = πr²h

22 / 7 x 2 x 2 x 21

= 264 m³ ½

Width of embankment = 3 m

Outer radius of ring = 2 + 3 = 5 m

Let the height of embankment be h

∴ Volume of embankment = Volume of earth dug out

∴ Height of embankment = 4 m . 1

5. Modal class is 30-40

= 36. 2

**Detailed Solution : **

Modal – class = 30 – 40

⇒ l = 30 , *f*_{0} = 10 , *f*₁ = 16 , *f*₂ = 12 , h = 10

6. Since roots of the equation x² + 4x + k = 0 are real

⇒ 16 – 4k ≥ 0

⇒ k ≤ 4 2

**Detailed Solution : **

Given x² + 4x + k = 0 .

Comparing the given equation with

ax² + bx + c = 0 ,

we get a = 1 , b = 4 , c = k 1

Since , given the equation has real roots

⇒ D ≥ 0

⇒ b^{2} – 4ac ≥ 0

⇒ 4² – 4 × 1 × k ≥ 0

⇒ 4k ≤ 16

⇒ k ≤ 4 1

OR

**Given :** 2x² – 4x + 3 = 0

On comparing above with ax² + bx + c = 0 ,

we get , a = 2 , b = -4 , c = 3 1

Now , D = b² – 4ac

So , D = ( -4 ) ² – 4 ( 2 ) × ( 3 )

= -8 < 0 or ( -ve )

Hence , the given equation has no real roots . 1

9.

1½

Hence , mean daily : wages are ₹ 170.182 ( Approx.) ½

10. Let two poles be AB and CD ,

then AB = CD = h

∴ Height of poles is 20 √3 m

and the distances of P are 20 m and 60 m from poles . ½

OR

Let AB be a tower and BC be a flagstaff .

According to question ,

In △PAC , ∠A = 90 °

AC / AP = tan 45 ° = 1

½

**Section – C**

11. Surface area of block

1½ + 1½

= 225.625 cm² . 1

**Detailed Solution : **

Given , Side of cube = 6 cm

Diameter of hemisphere = 3.5 cm

Radius of hemisphere = 3.5 / 2 ½

Total surface area of cube = 6a²

= 6 x ( 6 ) ² = 216 cm² ½

Total surface area of solid = TSA of cube – Area of circle + CSA of hemisphere .

1½

12 . ∠AOQ = 58 ° ( Given )

∠ABQ = = 1/2 ∠AOQ ( Angle on the circumference of the circle by the same arc ) 1½

= 1 / 2 x 58 °

= 29 ° 1

∠BAT = 90 ° ( ∴ OA ⊥ AT )

∠ATQ = 90 ° – 29 °

= 61 ° 1½

OR

**Given :** A circle with centre O is inscribed in a quadrilateral ABCD .

In △AEO and △AFO ,

OE = OF ( radii of circle )

∠OEA = ∠OFA = 90 ° ( radius is ⊥ to tangent ) ½

½

The point of contact is perpendicular to the tangent .

OA = OA ( common side )

△AEO ≅ △AFO ( R.H.S. congruency )

∠7 = ∠8 ( By cpct ) ……( i ) 1½

Similarly ,

∠1 = ∠2 …..( ii )

∠3 = ∠4 ..…( iii )

∠5 = ∠6 …..( iv )

∠1 + ∠2 + ∠3 + ∠4 + ∠5 + ∠6 + ∠7 + ∠8 = 360 ° ( angle around a point is 360 ° ) ½

2∠1 + 2∠8 + 2∠4 + 2∠5 = 360 °

∠1 + ∠8 + ∠4 + ∠5 = 180 °

( ∠1 + ∠8 ) + ( ∠4 + ∠5 ) = 180 ° 1

∠AOB + ∠COD = 180 °

Hence Proved .

**Case Study – 1**

13. ( i ) Clearly , distance covered by the artist is equal to the length of the rope AC .

Let AB be the vertical pole of height 12 m .

It is given that ∠ACB = 30 °

Thus , in right – angled triangle ABC , 1

sin 30 ° = AB / AC

⇒ 1 / 2 = 12 / AC

∴ AC = 24 m . 1

( ii ) In △ ABC , ∠B = 90 °

tan 30 ° = AB / BC

⇒ 1 / √3 = 12 / BC

⇒ BC = 12√3 m . 2

**Case Study – 2**

14. ( i ) The amount paid by him in 25^{th} installment is :

T_{25} = a + 24d 1

= 1000 + 24 × 100

= 1000 + 2400

= ₹ 3400 . 1

( ii ) The amount paid by him in 30^{th} installment ,

T_{30} = a + 29d 1

= 1000 + 29 x 100

= 1000 + 2900

= ₹ 3900 . 1
