**In each of the questions 1 to 21, out of four options only one is correct. Write the correct answer. **

**1. Which amongst the following is not a polyhedron?**

**Solution:- **

(c)

By the definition a polyhedron is regular if its faces are congruent regular polygons and the same number of faces meet at each vertex.

**2. Which of the following will not form a polyhedron? **

**(a) 3 triangles (b) 2 triangles and 3 parallelogram **

**(c) 8 triangles (d) 1 pentagon and 5 triangles**

**Solution:-**

(a) 3 triangles

3 triangles will not form a polyhedron because it must have more than four faces. So, it is not possible in 3 triangles which have 3 faces only.

**3. Which of the following is a regular polyhedron? **

**(a) Cuboid (b) Triangular prism **

**(c) Cube (d) Square prism**

**Solution:-**

(c) Cube

Because, a cube is a platonic solid because all six of its faces are congruent squares.

**4. Which of the following is a two Dimensional figure? **

**Solution:-**

(a) Rectangle

Rectangle is a two dimensional figure. It has length and breadth.

**5. Which of the following can be the base of a pyramid? **

**(a) Line segment (b) Circle (c) Octagon (d) Oval**

**Solution:-**

(c) Octagon

A pyramid is a polyhedron whose base is a polygon and lateral faces are triangles.

**6. Which of the following 3D shapes does not have a vertex? **

**(a) Pyramid (b) Prism (c) Cone (d) Sphere**

**Solution:-**

Sphere.

The faces meet at edges which are line segments and the edges meet at a point called vertex. Since, a sphere has no vertex and no edges.

**7. Solid having only line segments as its edges is a **

**(a) Polyhedron (b) Cone (c) Cylinder (d) Polygon**

**Solution:-**

(a) Polyhedron

A polyhedron is formed by four or more polygons that intersect only at their edges. The faces of a regular polyhedron are all congruent regular polygons and the same number of faces intersect at each vertex.

**8. In a solid if F = V = 5, then the number of edges in this shape is **

**(a) 6 (b) 4 (c) 8 (d) 2**

**Solution:-**

(c) 8

We have,

Eulerâ€™s formula for any polyhedron is, F + V â€“ E = 2

Given, F = V = 5

Where, face (F) = 5, Vertex (V) = 5, Edge (E) =?

Then,

5 + 5 â€“ E = 2

10 â€“ E = 2

10 â€“ 2 = E

Edges (E) = 8

**12. Which of the following is not a prism?**

**Solution:-**

(b)

By observing option (b) figure, bottom and top faces are not congruent polygons.

**13. We have 4 congruent equilateral triangles. What do we need more to make a pyramid? **

**(a) An equilateral triangle. **

**(b) A square with same side length as of triangle. **

**(c) 2 equilateral triangles with side length same as triangle. **

**(d) 2 squares with side length same as triangle.**

**Solution:-**

(b) A square with same side length as of triangle.

We have to add a square with same side length as of triangle to make a pyramid. As we know a pyramid is a polyhedron whose base is a polygon and lateral faces are triangles.

**14. Side of a square garden is 30 m. If the scale used to draw its picture is 1cm: 5m, the perimeter of the square in the picture is **

**(a) 20 cm (b) 24 cm (c) 28 cm (d) 30 cm**

**Solution:-**

(b) 24 cm

Given, side of a square garden = 30m

Scale to draw garden picture is 1cm: 5m

So, perimeter of the square garden is = 4 Ã— 30

= 120m

Then,

Perimeter to draw garden in picture = 120/5

= 24 cm

**15. Which of the following shapes has a vertex.**

**Solution:-**

(c)

The edges meet at a point called vertex.

**16. In the given map, the distance between the places is shown using the scale 1 cm: 0.5 km. Then the actual distance (in km) between school and the book shop is**

**(a) 1.25 (b) 2.5 (c) 2 (d) 1.1**

**Solution:-**

Given, Scale = 1 cm: 0.5km

Then the actual distance between school and the book shop is = 2.2 Ã— 0.5

= 1.1 cm

**17. Which of the following cannot be true for a polyhedron? **

**(a) V = 4, F = 4, E = 6 (b) V = 6, F = 8, E = 12 **

**(c) V = 20, F = 12, E = 30 (d) V = 4, F = 6, E = 6**

**Solution:-**

(d) V = 4, F = 6, E = 6

We have,

Eulerâ€™s formula for any polyhedron is, F + V â€“ E = 2

Where, face (F) = 6, Vertex (V) = 4, Edge (E) =6

Then,

6 + 4 â€“ 6 = 2

LHS 6 + 4 -6

10 â€“ 6

4

RHS= 2

By comparing LHS and RHS

LHS â‰ RHS

**18. In a blueprint of a room, an architect has shown the height of the room as 33 cm. If the actual height of the room is 330 cm, then the scale used by her is **

**(a) 1:11 (b) 1:10 (c) 1:100 (d) 1:3**

**Solution:-**

(b) 1: 10

From the question it is given that,

An architect has shown the height of the room as 33 cm

The actual height of the room is 330 cm

Then, the scale used by an architect is = Drawn size/actual size

= 33/330 â€¦ [divide both by 33]

= 1/10

= 1: 10

**19. The following is the map of a town. Based on it answer question 19-21. **

**The number of hospitals in the town is**

**(a) 1 (b) 2 (c) 3 (d) 4**

**(a) 1 : 2 (b) 2 : 1 (c) 2 : 3 (d) 3 : 2 **

**Solution:-**

(d) 3: 2

By observing the given map,

The number of general stores = 6

The number of ground = 4

Then,

The ratio of the number of general stores and that of the ground is = 6/4

= 3/2

= 3: 2

**21. According to the map, the number of schools in the town is **

**(a) 4 (b) 3 (c) 5 (d) 2**

**Solution:-**

(c) 5

If a solid shape has 12 faces and 20 vertices, then the number of edges in this solid is 30.

We have,

Eulerâ€™s formula for any polyhedron is, F + V â€“ E = 2

Given, F = 12, V = 20

Where, face (F) = 12, Vertex (V) = 20, Edge (E) =?

Then,

12 + 20 â€“ E = 2

32 â€“ E = 2

32 â€“ 2 = E

Edges (E) = 30

**32. If 4 km on a map is represented by 1 cm, then 16 km is represented by ______ cm.**

**Solution:-**

If 4 km on a map is represented by 1 cm, then 16 km is represented by 4 cm.

= 16/4

= 4 cm

**33. If actual distance between two places A and B is 110 km and it is represented on a map by 25 mm. Then the scale used is ______.**

**Solution:-**

If actual distance between two places A and B is 110 km and it is represented on a map by 25 mm. Then the scale used is 1: 4400000

From the question it is given that,

Actual distance between two places A and B is = 110km

Distance is represented on a map by = 25 mm

So, the scale used is = Size drawn on map/ actual distance

= 25 mm/110 km

We know that, 1km = 1000m

1m = 100cm

1cm = 10mm

1 km = 10,00,000

So, 110km = 11,00,00,000 mm

Therefore = 25/11,00,00,000

= 1/4400000

= 1: 4400000
