**Solution of Sample Paper**

**Section – A**

1. Given , 4x² – 4a²x + ( a^{4} – b^{4} ) = 0

Comparing with Ax^{2} + Bx + C = 0 , we get

Here , A = 4 , B = -4a² and C = ( a^{4} – b^{4} )

OR

Since , x² + 2√2 kx + 18 = 0 has equal roots then discriminant , D = 0

Comparing x² + 2√2 kx + 18 = 0 with ax² + bx + c = 0 ,

Now , a = 1 , b = 2√2 k and c = 18

D = 0

⇒ b² = 4ac 1

( 2√2k ) ² = 4 × 1 × 18

4 × 2 × k² = 72

k² = 72 / 8

k² = 9 ⇒ k = √9

k = ± 3 . 1

2. Given , ( a – b ) ² , ( a² + b² ) and ( a + b ) ²

Common difference ,

d₁ = ( a² + b² ) – ( a – b ) ²

= a² + b² – ( a² + b² – 2ab )

= a² + b² – a² – b² + 2ab

= 2ab ½

and d_{2} = ( a + b ) ² – ( a² + b² )

= a² + b² + 2ab – a² – b²

= 2ab ½

Since , d₁ = d₂

Hence , ( a – b ) ² , ( a² + b² ) and ( a + b ) ² are in an A.P.

Hence Proved . 1

OR

a_{n} = a_{21} + 120

= ( 3 + 20 x 12 ) + 120

= 363 1

∴ 363 = 3 + ( n – 1 ) x 12

⇒ n = 31 1

or 31^{st} term is 120 more than a_{21}

**Detailed Solution :**

Given A.P. is : 3 , 15 , 27 , 39

Here , first term , a = 3 and common difference , d = 12

Now , 21^{st} term of A.P. is

t_{21} = a + ( 21 – 1 ) d

∴ t_{21} = 3 + 20 x 12 = 243

Therefore , 21^{st} term is 243

We need to calculate term which is 120 more than 21^{st} term

i.e., it should be 243 + 120 = 363 1

Therefore , t_{n} = 363

∴ t_{n} = a + ( n – 1 ) 12

363 = 3 + ( n – 1 ) 12

360 = 12 ( n – 1 )

n – 1 = 30

n = 31

So , 31^{st} term is 120 more than 21^{st} term . 1

3. ∠A = ∠OPA = ∠OSA = 90 ° ½

Hence , ∠SOP = 90 °

Also , AP = AS

Hence , OSAP is a square .

AP = AS = 10 cm ½

CR = CQ = 27 cm

BQ = BC – CQ

= 38 – 27 = 11 cm ½

BP = BQ = 11 cm

x = AB = AP + BP

= 10 + 11 = 21 cm ½

**Detailed Solution : **

With O as centre , draw a perpendicular OP on AB .

Now , in quadrilateral APOS ,

∠SAP = 90 ° ( Given )

∠APO = 90 ° ( By construction )

and ∠ASO = 90 ° ( Angle between tangent and radius )

Finally ∠SOP = 360 ° – ( 90 ° + 90 ° + 90 ° )

= 90 ° ½

AP = AS ( Tangents from external point A )

∴ OSAP is a square .

AP = AS = SO = 10 cm ½

∵ CR = CQ ( Tangents from external point C )

∴ CR = CQ = 27 cm

But BC = 38 cm ( Given )

∴ BQ = BC – CQ = ( 38 – 27 ) cm

BQ = 11 cm ½

BP = BQ ( Tangent from external point B )

∴ BP = 11 cm

So, x = AB = AP + PB

= ( 10 + 11 ) cm = 21 cm

Hence , the value of x is 21 cm . ½

4. Given ,

x^{2} + 5x – ( a² + a – 6 ) = 0

**Detailed Solution : **

x² + 5x – ( a² + a – 6 ) = 0

⇒ x² + 5x – ( a² + 3a – 2a – 6 ) = 0 ½

⇒ x² + 5x – [ a ( a + 3 ) -2 ( a + 3 ) ] = 0

⇒ x² + 5x – ( a + 3 ) ( a – 2 ) = 0

⇒ x² + [ ( a + 3 ) – ( a – 2 ) ] x – ( a + 3 ) ( a – 2 ) = 0

⇒ x² + ( a + 3 ) x – ( a – 2 ) x – ( a + 3 ) ( a – 2 ) = 0

⇒ x [ x + ( a + 3 ) ] – ( a – 2 ) [ x + ( a + 3 ) ] = 0 ½

⇒ [ x + ( a + 3 ) ] [ x – ( a – 2 ) ] = 0

⇒ x = – ( a + 3 ) or x = a – 2

Hence , roots of given equation are – ( a + 3 ) and a – 2 . 1

5. Radius of conical vessel = 5 cm

and its height = 24 cm

Volume of cone vessel = 1/3πR²H

= 1/3 x π x 5 × 5 × 24

= 200 cm³ . 1

Internal radius of cylindrical vessel = 10 cm

Let the height of emptied water be h .

∴ Volume of water in cylinder

= 3/4 x Volume of cone

⇒ πr^{2}h = 3/4 x Volume of cone

⇒ π x 10 x 10 x h = 150π

⇒ h = 1.5 cm

Hence the height of water = 1.5 cm 1

8. **Steps of construction : **

( i ) Draw a line segment OP = 6.5 cm .

( ii ) Taking O as centre and radius 2 cm , draw a circle .

( iii ) Draw perpendicular bisector of OP , intersect at OP at S.

( iv ) Taking S as centre draw another circle which intersects the first circle at Q and R.

( v ) Join P to Q and P to R.

Hence PQ and PR are two tangents . 2

9 . Modal class = 60 – 80

Empirical relationship ,

Mode = 3 median – 2 mean ½

Mode = 68 and mean = 53 ( given )

∴ 3 Median = Mode + 2 Mean

3 Median = 68 + 2 × 53

Median = 174/3 = 58 1

Hence , Median = 58 .

10. Let the speed of car by x m / minute

In △ABC , ∠B = 90 °

⇒ y = 6x ( √3 + 1 ) …..(ii)

Hence , time taken from C to B = 6 ( √3 + 1 ) minutes .

OR

Let AB = 50 m be the height of the tower and CD be the height of hill .

Now , in △ABC ,

∠ABC = 90 °

**Section – C**

11. Diameter of tent = 14 m and height = 24 m

∴ radius of tent = 7 m

= 550 m² 1

Surface area of 10 tents = 550 × 10

= 5500 m²

Hence , the amount by which Rampal helped the centre = ₹ 1,10,000 1

12. Let ∠OPQ be θ , then

∠TQP = 90 ° – θ 1

Since , TP = TQ

∴ ∠TPQ = 90 ° – θ ( opposite angles of equal sides ) 1

Now , ∠TPQ + ∠TQP + ∠PTQ = 180 ° ( Angle sum property of a Triangle ) 1

⇒ 90 ° – θ + 90 ° – θ + ∠PTQ = 180 °

⇒ ∠PTQ = 180 ° – 180 ° + 2θ

⇒ ∠PTQ = 2θ

Hence , ∠PTQ = 2∠OPQ 1

Hence Proved .

OR

½

Let circle touches CB at M , CA at N and AB at P.

Now OM ⊥ CB and ON ⊥ AC ( radius ⊥ tangent )

OM = ON ( radii )

CM = CN ( Tangents ) ½

∴ OMCN is a square .

Let OM = r = CM = CN 1

AN = AP , CN = CM and BM = BP ( tangent from external point )

AN = AP

⇒ AC – CN = AB – BP 1

b – r = c – BM

b – r = c – ( a – r )

b – r = c – a + r

2r = a + b – c

r = a + b – c / 2 1

Hence Proved .

14. ( i ) First term a = 1000

Common difference d = 100

30^{th} term , a_{30} = a + ( n – 1 ) d

= 1000 + 2900

= ₹ 3900 2
