1. The perimeter of a circle having radius 5cm is equal to:

(a)30 cm

(b)3.14 cm

(c)31.4 cm

(d)40 cm

Explanation: The perimeter of the circle is equal to the circumference of the circle.

Circumference = 2πr

=2 x 3.14 x 5

= 31.4 cm

2. Area of the circle with radius 5cm is equal to:

(a)60 sq.cm

(b)75.5 sq.cm

(c)78.5 sq.cm

(d)10.5 sq.cm

Area = πr2 = 3.14x5x5 = 78.5 sq.cm

3. The largest triangle inscribed in a semi-circle of radius r, then the area of that triangle is;

(a)r2

(b)1/2r2

(c)2r2

(d)√2r2

Explanation: The height of the largest triangle inscribed will be equal to the radius of the semi-circle and base will be equal to the diameter of the semi-circle.

Area of triangle = ½ x base x height

= ½ x 2r x r

= r2

4. If the perimeter of the circle and square are equal, then the ratio of their areas will be equal to:

(a)14:11

(b)22:7

(c)7:22

(c)11:14

Explanation: Given,

The perimeter of circle = perimeter of the square

2πr = 4a

a=πr/2

Area of square = a2 = (πr/2)2

Acircle/Asquare = πr2/(πr/2)2

= 14/11

5. The area of the circle that can be inscribed in a square of side 8 cm is

(a)36 π cm2

(b)16 π cm2

(c)12 π cm2

(d)9 π cm2

Explanation: Given,

Side of square = 8 cm

Diameter of a circle = side of square = 8cm

Therefore, Radius of circle = 4 cm

Area of circle

= π(4)2

= π (4)2

= 16π cm2

6. The area of the square that can be inscribed in a circle of radius 8 cm is

(a)256 cm2

(b)128 cm2

(c)642 cm2

(d)64 cm2

Explanation: Radius of circle = 8 cm

Diameter of circle = 16 cm = diagonal of the square

Let “a” be the triangle side, and the hypotenuse is 16 cm

Using Pythagoras theorem, we can write

162= a2+a2

256 = 2a2

a2= 256/2

a2= 128 = area of a square.

7. The area of a sector of a circle with radius 6 cm if the angle of the sector is 60°.

(a)142/7

(b)152/7

(c)132/7

(d)122/7

Explanation: Angle of the sector is 60°

Area of sector = (θ/360°)×π r2

∴ Area of the sector with angle 60° = (60°/360°) × π r2 cm2

= (36/6) π cm2

= 6 × (22/7) cm2 = 132/7 cm2

8. In a circle of radius 21 cm, an arc subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. The length of the arc is;

(a)20cm

(b)21cm

(c)22cm

(d)25cm

Explanation: Length of an arc = (θ/360°) × (2πr)

∴ Length of an arc AB = (60°/360°) × 2 × 22/7 × 21

= (1/6) × 2 × (22/7) × 21

Or Arc AB Length = 22cm

9. In a circle of radius 21 cm, an arc subtends an angle of 60° at the centre. The area of the sector formed by the arc is:

(a)200 cm2

(b)220 cm2

(c)231 cm2

(d)250 cm2

Explanation: The angle subtended by the arc = 60°

So, area of the sector = (60°/360°) × π r2 cm2

= (441/6) × (22/7) cm2

= 231 cm2

10. Area of a sector of angle p (in degrees) of a circle with radius R is

(a)p/180 × 2πR

(b)p/180 × π R2

(c)p/360 × 2πR

(d)p/720 × 2πR2
