### MSBSHSE Class 10 Mathematics Question Paper 2019 Paper 2 with Solutions

**1. (A) Solve the following questions (Any four): [4]**

**i. **If ΔABC ~ ΔPQR and ∠A = 60°, then ∠P = ?

**Solution:**

Given,

ΔABC ~ ΔPQR

We know that the corresponding angles of similar triangles are equal.

Therefore, ∠A = ∠P = 60°

**ii.** In right-angled ΔABC, if ∠B = 90°, AB = 6, BC = 8, then find AC.

**Solution:**

Given,

In right-angled ΔABC:

∠B = 90°, AB = 6, BC = 8

AC = Hypotenuse

By Pythagoras theorem,

AC^{2} = AB^{2} + BC^{2}

= (6)^{2} + (8)^{2}

= 36 + 64

= 100

AC = 10

**iii. **Write the length of the largest chord of a circle with a radius of 3.2 cm.

**Solution:**

Given,

Radius of circle = 3.2 cm

We know that the longest chord of a circle is the diameter of that circle.

Diameter = 2 × Radius

= 2 × 3.2

= 6.4 cm

Hence, the length of the largest chord of a circle is 6.4 cm.

**iv. **From the given number line, find d(A, B):

**Solution:**

From the given,

Coordinate of A = -3

Coordinate of B = 3

3 > -3

d(A, B) = Greater coordinate – Smaller coordinate

= 3 – (-3)

= 3 + 3

= 6 units

**v. **Find the value of sin 30° + cos 60°.

**Solution:**

sin 30° + cos 60°

= (½) + (½)

= (1 + 1)/2

= 2/2

= 1

**vi.** Find the area of a circle of radius 7 cm.

**Solution:**

Given,

Radius of circle = r = 7 cm

Area of circle = πr^{2}

= (22/7) × 7 × 7

= 154 cm^{2}

**(B) Solve the following questions (Any two): [4]**

**i. **Draw seg AB of length 5.7 cm and bisect it.

**Solution:**

**ii. **In right-angled triangle PQR, if ∠P = 60°, ∠R = 30°, and PR = 12, then find the values of PQ and QR.

**Solution:**

Given,

∠P = 60°, ∠R = 30°, and PR = 12

∠P + ∠Q + ∠R = 180°

60° + ∠Q + 30° = 180°

∠Q = 180° – 90°

∠Q = 90°

sin 30° = PQ/PR

½ = PQ/12

PQ = 12/2

PQ = 6

cos 30° = QR/PR

√3/2 = QR/12

QR = (12√3)/2 = 6√3

**iii. **In a right circular cone, if the perpendicular height is 12 cm and radius is 5 cm, then find its slant height.

**Solution:**

Given,

The perpendicular height of right circular cone = h = 12 cm

Radius = r = 5 cm

Slant height = l

= √(r^{2} + h^{2})

= √[(5)^{2} + (12)^{2}]

= √(25 + 144)

= √169

= 13 cm

Therefore, the slant height is 13 cm.

**2. (A) Choose the correct alternative: [4]**

**i. **ΔABC and ΔDEF are equilateral triangles. If A(ΔABC) : A(ΔDEF) = 1 : 2 and AB = 4, then what is the length of DE?

(A) 2√2 (B) 4 (C) 8 (D) 4√2

**Solution:**

Correct answer: (D)

A(ΔABC) : A(ΔDEF) = 1 : 2

Area of ΔABC = (√3/4) × (Side)²

= (√3/4) × 4²

= 4√3

Area of ΔDEF = 2 * Area of ΔABC

= 2 * 4√3

= 8√3

Let DE = EF = FD = x

Area of ΔDEF = (√3/4) × x²

8√3 = (√3/4) × x²

x² = 32

x = 4√2

Therefore, DE = 4√2

**ii. **Out of the following which is a Pythagorean triplet?

(A) (5, 12, 14) (B) (3, 4, 2) (C) (8, 15, 17) (D) (5, 5, 2)

**Solution:**

Correct answer: (C)

By Pythagoras theorem,

(8)^{2} + (15)^{2}

= 64 + 225

= 289

= (17)2

Therefore, (8, 15, 17) is a Pythagorean triplet.

**iii. **∠ACB is inscribed in arc ACB of a circle with centre O. If ∠ACB = 65°, find m(arc ACB):

(A) 130° (B) 295° (C) 230° (D) 65°

**Solution:**

Correct answer: (C)

Given,

∠ACB = 65°

∠ACB = 1/2 m(arc AB)

m(arc AB) = 2∠ACB = 2(65°) = 130°

m(arc ACB) = 360° – m(arc AB)

= 360° – 130°

= 230°

**iv. **1 + tan^{2}θ = ?

(A) sin^{2}θ (B) sec^{2}θ (C) cosec^{2}θ (D) cot^{2}θ

**Solution:**

Correct answer: (B)

We know that,

sec^{2}θ – tan^{2}θ = 1

sec^{2}θ = 1 + tan^{2}θ

**(B) Solve the following questions (Any two): [4]**

**i.** Construct a tangent to a circle with centre A and radius 3.4 cm at any point P on it.

**Solution:**

**ii. **Find the slope of a line passing through the points A(3, 1) and B(5, 3).

**Solution:**

Let the given points be:

A(3, 1) = (x_{1}, y_{1})

B(5, 3) = (x_{2}, y_{2})

Slope of the line passing through the points (x_{1}, y_{1}) and (x_{2}, y_{2})

= (y_{2} – y_{1})/ (x_{2} – x_{1})

= (3 – 1)/ (5 – 3)

= 2/2

= 1

Therefore, the slope of the line AB is 1.

**iii. **Find the surface area of a sphere of radius 3.5 cm.

**Solution:**

Given,

Radius of the sphere = r = 3.5 cm

The surface area of the sphere = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × (22/7) × 3.5 × 3.5

= 154 cm^{2}

Therefore, the surface area of the sphere is 154 cm^{2}.

**3. (A) Complete the following activities (Any two): [4]**

**Solution:**

**Solution:**

**iii. **How many solid cylinders of radius 6 cm and height 12 cm can be made by melting a solid sphere of radius 18 cm?

Activity: Radius of the sphere, r = 18 cm

For cylinder, radius R = 6 cm, height H = 12 cm

**Solution:**

**(B) Solve the following questions (Any two): [4]**

**i. **In right-angled ΔABC, BD ⊥ AC.

If AD = 4, DC = 9, then find BD.

**Solution:**

Given,

BD ⊥ AC in the right triangle ABC.

AD = 4, DC = 9

BD^{2} = AD × DC

= 4 × 9

= 36

BD = √36

BD = 6

**ii. **Verify whether the following points are collinear or not:

A (1, -3), B (2, -5), C (-4, 7).

**Solution:**

Given,

A (1, -3) = (x_{1}, y_{1})

B (2, -5) = (x_{2}, y_{2})

C (-4, 7) = (x_{3}, y_{3})

Area of triangle ABC = ½ [x_{1}(y_{2} – y_{3}) + x_{2}(y_{3} – y_{1}) + x_{3}(y_{1} – y_{2})]

= ½ [1(-5 – 7) + 2(7 + 3) – 4(-3 + 5)]

= ½ [-12 + 2(10) – 4(2)]

= ½ [-12 + 20 – 8]

= ½ [20 – 20]

= ½ (0)

= 0

Therefore, the given points are collinear.

**iii. **If sec θ = 25/7, then find the value of tan θ.

**Solution:**

Given,

sec θ = 25/7

We know that,

sec^{2}θ – tan^{2}θ = 1

tan^{2}θ = sec^{2}θ – 1

= (25/7)^{2} – 1

= (625/49) – 1

= (625 – 49)/49

= 576/49

tan^{2}θ = (24/7)^{2}

tan θ = 24/7

**4. Solve the following questions (Any three): [9]**

**i.** In ΔPQR, seg PM is a median, PM = 9 and PQ^{2} + PR^{2} = 290. Find the length of QR.

**Solution:**

Given,

PQ^{2} + PR^{2} = 290

By Apollonius theorem,

PQ^{2} + PR^{2} = 2PM^{2} + 2QM^{2}

290 = 2[(9)^{2} + QM^{2}]

290/2 = 81 + QM^{2}

QM^{2} = 145 – 81

QM^{2} = 64

QM = 8

QR = 2 × QM

= 2 × 8

= 16

**ii.** In the given figure, O is the centre of the circle. ∠QPR = 70° and m(arc PYR) = 160°, then find the value of each of the following:

(a) m(arc QXR)

(b) ∠QOR

(c) ∠PQR

**Solution:**

Given,

∠QPR = 70°

m(arc PYR) = 160°

**(a) **∠QPR = 1/2 m(arc QXR)

70° × 2 = m(arc QXR)

m(arc QXR) = 140°

Now,

**(b)** ∠QOR = 2∠QPR

= 2 × 70°

= 140°

**(c)** ∠PQR = 1/2 m(arc PXR)

= (1/2) × 160°

= 80°

**iii. **Draw a circle with a radius of 4.2 cm. Construct tangents to the circle from a point at a distance of 7 cm from the centre.

**Solution:**

Therefore, PA and PB are the tangents to the circle.

**iv. **When an observer at a distance of 12 m from a tree looks at the top of the tree, the angle of elevation is 60°. What is the height of the tree? (√3 = 1.73)

**Solution:**

Let AB be the tree and C be the point of observation.

In right triangle ABC,

tan 60° = AB/BC

√3 = AB/12

AB = 12√3

= 12 × 1.73

= 20.76 m

Hence, the height of the tree is 20.76 m.

**5. Solve the following questions (Any one): [4]**

**i. **A circle with centre P is inscribed in the ΔABC. Side AB, side BC, and side AC touch the circle at points L, M, and N respectively. Radius of the circle is r.

Prove that: A(ΔABC) = 1/ 2 (AB + BC + AC) × r.

**Solution:**

Given,

P is the centre of the circle.

Construction:

Join PL, PM, PN, and APM, BPN, CPL.

Proof:

PM ⊥ BC

PN ⊥ AC

PL ⊥ AB

PM = PN = PN = r (Radius of incircle)

A(Δ ABC) = A(Δ APB) + (Δ APC) + (Δ BPC)

= (1/2) AB × PL + (1/2) AC × PN + (1/2) BC × PM

= (1/2) AB × r + (1/2) AC × r + (1/2) BC × r

= (1/2) [AB + AC + BC] × r

Hence proved.

**ii. **In ΔABC, ∠ACB = 90°. seg CD ⊥ side AB and seg CE is the angle bisector of ∠ACB.

Prove that: AD/BD = AE^{2}/BE^{2}.

**Solution:**

Given,

In ΔABC, ∠ACB = 90°.

seg CD ⊥ side AB

seg CE is the angle bisector of ∠ACB

AE/EB = AC/CB (property of angle bisector of a triangle)

AE^{2}/BE^{2} = AC^{2}/CB^{2}….(i)

In triangle ACB,

m∠ACB = 90° (given)

seg CD ⊥ hypotenuse AB (given)

By RHS criterion,

Δ ACB ~ Δ ADC ~ Δ CDB….(ii)

Now,

ΔADC ~ ΔACB

AC/AB = AD/AC (corresponding sides of similar triangles)

AC^{2} = AB × AD….(iii)

Also,

ΔCDB ~ ΔACB

CB/AB = DB/CB (corresponding sides of similar triangles)

CB^{2} = AB × CB….(iv)

From (i), (iii), and (iv),

AE^{2}/BE^{2} = (AB × AD)/ (AB × DB)

AE^{2}/BE^{2} = AD/DB

Hence proved.

**6. Solve the following questions (Any one): [3]**

**i. **Show that the points (2, 0), (-2, 0) and (0, 2) are the vertices of a triangle. Also, state with the reason the type of the triangle.

**Solution:**

Let the given points be:

A(2, 0) = (x1, y1)

B(-2, 0) = (x2, y2)

C(0, 2) = (x3, y3)

Using the distance formula,

And

AC = BC

Therefore, ΔABC is an isosceles triangle.

Also,

AC^{2} + BC^{2} = (2√2)^{2} + (2√2)^{2}

= 4(2) + 4(2)

= 8 + 8

= 16

= 4^{2}

= AB^{2}

Hence, it is a right angle isosceles triangle.

**ii.**

In the above figure, XLMT is a rectangle. LM = 21 cm, XL = 10.5 cm. The diameter of the

smaller semicircle is half the diameter of the larger semicircle. Find the area of the non-shaded region.

**Solution:**

Given,

XLMT is a rectangle.

LM = 21 cm

XL = 10.5 cm

Let d be the diameter of the smaller semicircle and D be the diameter of the larger semicircle.

According to the given,

d = D/2….(i)

From the given figure,

OP = LM = 21 cm

OP = D + d

21 = D + (D/2)

21 = (2D + D)/2

3D = 42

D = 42/3

D = 14 cm

d = D/2 = 14/2 = 7 cm

Now,

Radius of the larger semicircle = R = 14/2 = 7 cm

Radius of the smaller semicircle = r = 7/2 cm

Area of the non-shaded region = Area of rectangle – [Area of the smaller semicircle + Area of the larger semicircle]

= LM × XL – [(πr^{2}/2) + (πR^{2}/2)]

= (21 × 10.5) – π [{(7/2)^{2}/ 2} + (7)^{2}/2]

= 220.5 – π [(49/8) + (49/2)]

= 220.5 – 49π [(1/8) + (1/2)]

= 220.5 – 49π [(1 + 4)/8]

= 220.5 – 49 × (22/7) × (5/8)

= 220.5 – (385/4)

= 220.5 – 96.25

= 124.25

Hence, the area of the non-shaded region is 124.25 cm^{2}.
