**In questions 1 to 41, there are four options out of which one is correct. Write the correct one. **

**1. The angles between North and West and South and East are **

**(a) complementary (b) supplementary **

**(c) both are acute (d) both are obtuse **

**Solution:-**

(b) supplementary

The angle between North and West is 90^{o}, angle between South and East is 90^{o} as shown in the figure above. So, 90^{o} + 90^{o} = 180^{o}.

Then, the angles between North and West and South and East are supplementary.

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 180Â°, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

**2. Angles between South and West and South and East are **

**(a) vertically opposite angles (b) complementary angles **

**(c) making a linear pair (d) adjacent but not supplementary**

**Solution:-**

(c) making a linear pair

A linear pair is a pair of adjacent angles whose non-common sides are opposite rays.

**3. In Fig. 5.9, PQ is a mirror, AB is the incident ray and BC is the reflected ray. If âˆ ABC = 46 ^{o}, then âˆ ABP is equal to **

**(a) 44 ^{o} (b) 67^{o} (c) 13^{o} (d) 62^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(b) 67^{o}

As we know that, the angle formed by the incident ray and angle formed by the reflected ray is equal.

From the given figure,

PQ is a straight line,

So, âˆ ABP + âˆ ABC + âˆ CBQ = 180^{o}

Let us assume the âˆ ABP = âˆ CBQ = x

Then,

x + 46^{o }+ x = 180^{o}

2x + 46^{o} = 180^{o}

2x = 180^{o} â€“ 46^{o}

2x = 134^{o}

x = 134^{o}/2

x = 67^{o}

Therefore, the âˆ ABP = âˆ CBQ = 67^{o}

**4. If the complement of an angle is 79 ^{o}, then the angle will be of **

**(a) 1 ^{o} (b) 11^{o} (c) 79^{o} (d) 101^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(b) 11^{o}

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 90Â°, the angles are called complementary angles. Each of them is called complement of the other.

The given complement of an angle is 79^{o}

Let the measure of the angle be x^{o}.

Then,

x + 79^{o} = 90^{o}

x = 90^{o} â€“ 79^{o}

x = 11^{o}

Hence, the measure of the angle is 11^{o}.

**5. Angles which are both supplementary and vertically opposite are **

**(a) 95 ^{o}, 85^{o} (b) 90^{o}, 90^{o} (c) 100^{o}, 80^{o} (d) 45^{o}, 45^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(b) 90^{o}, 90^{o}

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 180Â°, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

**6. The angle which makes a linear pair with an angle of 61 ^{o} is of **

**(a) 29 ^{o} (b) 61^{o} (c) 122^{o} (d) 119^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(d) 119^{o}

A linear pair is a pair of adjacent angles whose non-common sides are opposite rays.

We know that, measure of sum of adjacent angles is equal to 180^{o}.

Let the measure of other angle be x^{o}.

Then,

x + 61^{o} = 180^{o}

x = 180^{o} â€“ 61^{o}

x = 119^{o}

**7. The angles x and 90 ^{o} â€“ x are **

**(a) supplementary (b) complementary **

**(c) vertically opposite (d) making a linear pair**

**Solution:-**

(b) complementary

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 90^{o}, then the angles are called complementary angles.

x + 90^{o} â€“ x = 90^{o}

90^{o} = 90^{o}

LHS = RHS

**8. The angles x â€“ 10 ^{o} and 190^{o} â€“ x are **

**(a) interior angles on the same side of the transversal **

**(b) making a linear pair **

**(c) complementary **

**(d) supplementary**

**Solution:-**

(d) supplementary

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 180^{o}, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

x â€“ 10^{o} + 190^{o} â€“ x = 180^{o}

190^{o} â€“ 10 = 180^{o}

180^{o} = 180^{o}

LHS = RHS

**9. In Fig. 5.10, the value of x is **

**(a) 110 ^{o} (b) 46^{o} (c) 64^{o} (d) 150^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(d) 150^{o}

Sum of all angles about a point given in the figure are equal to 360^{o}.

Then, 100^{o}Â + 46^{o} + 64^{o} + x = 360^{o}

210^{o} + x = 360^{o}

x = 360^{o}Â â€“ 210^{o}

x = 150^{o}

**10. In Fig. 5.11, if AB || CD, âˆ APQ = 50 ^{o} and âˆ PRD = 130^{o}, then âˆ QPR is **

**(a) 130 ^{o} (b) 50^{o} (c) 80^{o} (d) 30^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(c) 80^{o}

We know that, âˆ APR = âˆ PRD â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

âˆ APQ + âˆ QPR = 130^{o}

50^{o} + âˆ QPR = 130^{o}

âˆ QPR = 130^{o} â€“ 50^{o}

âˆ QPR = 80^{o}

**11. In Fig. 5.12, lines l and m intersect each other at a point. Which of the following is false? **

**(a) âˆ a = âˆ b (b) âˆ d = âˆ c **

**(c) âˆ a + âˆ d = 180 ^{o} (d) âˆ a = âˆ d**

**Solution:-**

(d) âˆ a = âˆ d

âˆ a â‰ âˆ d

âˆ a = âˆ b [because vertically opposite angles]

âˆ d = âˆ c [because vertically opposite angles]

âˆ a + âˆ d = 180^{o} [Linear pair of angles]

**12. If angle P and angle Q are supplementary and the measure of angle P is 60 ^{o}, then the measure of angle Q is **

**(a) 120 ^{o} (b) 60^{o} (c) 30^{o} (d) 20^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 120^{o}

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 180^{o}, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

P + Q = 180^{o}

60^{o} + Q = 180^{o}

Q = 180^{o} â€“ 60^{o}

Q = 120^{o}

**13. In Fig. 5.13, POR is a line. The value of a is **

**(a) 40 ^{o} (b) 45^{o} (c) 55^{o} (d) 60^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 40^{o}

We know that, when the sum of the measures of two angles is 180^{o}, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

(3a + 5)^{o}Â + (2a – 25)^{o} = 180^{o}

3a + 5 + 2a â€“ 25 = 180^{o}

5a â€“ 20 = 180^{o}

5a = 180^{o} + 20

5a = 200

a = 200/5

a = 40^{o}

**14. In Fig. 5.14, POQ is a line. If x = 30Â°, then âˆ QOR is**

**(a) 90 ^{o} (b) 30^{o} (c) 150^{o} (d) 60^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 90^{o}

Sum of all angles about a straight line given in the figure are equal to 180^{o}.

Then, 30^{o}Â + 2y + 3y = 180^{o}

30^{o} + 5y = 180^{o}

5y = 180^{o}Â â€“ 30^{o}

5y = 150^{o}

y = 150/5

y = 30^{o}

So, 2y = 2 Ã— 30 = 60^{o}

3y = 3 Ã— 30 = 90^{o}

Therefore, âˆ QOR = 90^{o}

**15. The measure of an angle which is four times its supplement is **

**(a) 36 ^{o} (b) 144^{o} (c) 16^{o} (d) 64^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(b) 144^{o}

We know that, when the sum of the measures of two angles is 180^{o}, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

Let us assume the angle be x.

Then, its supplement angle = (180^{o} – x)

As per the condition given in the question, x = 4 (180^{o} – x)

x = 720^{o} â€“ 4x

x + 4x = 720^{o}

5x = 720^{o}

x = 720^{o}/5

x =144^{o}

**16. In Fig. 5.15, the value of y is **

**(a) 30 ^{o} (b) 15^{o} (c) 20^{o} (d) 22.5^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(c) 20^{o}

Sum of all angles about a straight line given in the figure are equal to 180^{o}.

Then, 6yÂ + y + 2y = 180^{o}

9y = 180^{o}

y = 180/9

y = 20^{o}

So, value of y is 20^{o}.

**17. In Fig. 5.16, PA || BC || DT and AB || DC. Then, the values of a and b are respectively.**

**(a) 60 ^{o}, 120^{o} (b) 50^{o},130^{o} (c) 70^{o},110^{o} (d) 80^{o},100^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(b) 50^{o},130^{o}

We know that, âˆ PAB = âˆ ABC = 50^{o} â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

Given, AB || DC so consider it as parallelogram,

In parallelogram adjacent angles of a parallelogram are supplementary.

So, âˆ ABC + âˆ BCD = 180^{o}

50^{o}Â + âˆ BCD = 180^{o}

âˆ BCD = 180^{o}Â â€“ 50^{o}

âˆ BCD = 130^{o}

âˆ BCD = âˆ CDT = 130^{o}Â â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

Therefore, a = 50^{o}Â and b = 130^{o}

**18. The difference of two complementary angles is 30 ^{o}. Then, the angles are **

**(a) 60 ^{o}, 30^{o} (b) 70^{o}, 40^{o} (c) 20^{o}, 50^{o} (d) 105^{o}, 75^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 60^{o}, 30^{o}

When the sum of the measures of two angles is 90^{o}, then the angles are called complementary angles.

So, 60^{o} + 30^{o} = 90^{o}

As per the condition in the question, 60^{o}Â â€“ 30^{o} = 30^{o}

**19. In Fig. 5.17, PQ || SR and SP || RQ. Then, angles a and b are respectively **

**(a) 20 ^{o}, 50^{o} (b) 50^{o}, 20^{o} (c) 30^{o}, 50^{o} (d) 45^{o}, 35^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 20^{o}, 50^{o}

âˆ QRP = âˆ RPS = 50^{o}Â â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

âˆ SRP = âˆ RPQ = 20^{o} â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

Therefore, angle a = 20^{o} and angle b = 50^{o}

**20. In Fig. 5.18, a and b are**

** **

**(a) alternate exterior angles **

**(b) corresponding angles **

**(c) alternate interior angles **

**(a) 120 ^{o} (b) 125^{o} (c) 110^{o} (d) 90^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 120^{o}

We know that, when the sum of the measures of two angles is 180^{o}, then the angles are called supplementary angles.

Let us assume two angles be 1x and 2x.

1x + 2x = 180^{o}

3x = 180^{o}

x = 180^{o}/3

x = 60^{o}

Then the bigger angle is 2x = 2 Ã— 60^{o} = 120^{o}

**22. In Fig. 5.19, âˆ ROS is a right angle and âˆ POR and âˆ QOS are in the ratio 1: 5. Then, âˆ QOS measures **

**(a) 150 ^{o} (b) 75^{o} (c) 45^{o} (d) 60^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(b) 75^{o}

Sum of all angles about a straight line given in the figure are equal to 180^{o}.

Given, âˆ ROS is a right angle = 90^{o}

Let us assume âˆ POR = x and âˆ QOS = 5x.

Then, âˆ PORÂ + âˆ ROS + âˆ QOS = 180^{o}

x + 90^{oÂ }+ 5x = 180^{o}

6x = 180^{o} â€“ 90^{o}

6x = 90^{o}

x = 90^{o}/6

x = 15^{o}

So, âˆ QOS measures = 5x = 5 Ã— 15^{o} = 75^{o}

**23. Statements a and b are as given below: **

(d) 10^{o}

âˆ AOF = âˆ COD = 90^{o} [because vertically opposite angles]

Sum of all angles about a straight line given in the figure are equal to 180^{o}.

Then, âˆ BOCÂ + âˆ COD + âˆ DOE = 180^{o}

40^{o} + 90^{o} + 5a = 180^{o}

130^{o} + 5a = 180^{o}

5a = 180^{o}Â â€“ 130^{o}

5a = 50^{o}

a = 50/5

a = 10^{o}

**27. In Fig. 5.23, if QP || SR, the value of a is **

**(a) 40 ^{o} (b) 30^{o} (c) 90^{o} (d) 80^{o}**

To find out the value of â€˜aâ€™, draw a line XY, to cut at â€˜aâ€™.

So, XY || SR

âˆ XTS =Â âˆ TSR = 30^{o} â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

âˆ PQT =Â âˆ QTX = 60^{o} â€¦ [because interior alternate angles]

Then, a = âˆ XTS + âˆ QTX

= 30^{o} + 60^{o}

= 90^{o}

**Solution:-**

(b) 144^{o}

Sum of all angles about a straight line given in the figure are equal to 180^{o}.

PQ is a straight line.

Then, âˆ PORÂ + âˆ ROT + âˆ TOQ = 180^{o}

Given, x : y = 3 : 2

Let us assume x = 3a, y = 2a

90^{o} + 3a + 2a = 180^{o}

90^{o} + 5a = 180^{o}

5a = 180^{o}Â â€“ 90^{o}

5a = 90^{o}

a = 90/5

a = 18^{o}

So, x = 3a = 3 Ã— 18 = 54^{o}

y = 2a = 2 Ã— 18 = 36^{o}

From the figure SOT is a straight line,

Then, z+ y = 180^{o}

z + 36^{o}Â = 180^{o}

z = 180^{o} â€“ 36^{o}

z = 144^{o}

**31. In Fig. 5.26, POQ is a line, then a is equal to **

**(a) 35 ^{o} (b) 100^{o} (c) 80^{o} (d) 135^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(c) 80^{o}

From the figure POQ is a straight line,

Then, 100 + a = 180^{o}

a = 180^{o} â€“ 100

a= 80^{o}

**32. Vertically opposite angles are always **

**(a) supplementary (b) complementary **

**Solution:-**

(a) 20^{o}

Given, a = 40^{o}

Then, 2a = 2 Ã— 40 = 80^{o}

From the figure, angles formed on the straight line are equal to 180^{o},

Then, 5b + 2a = 180^{o}

5b + 80^{o} = 180^{o}

5b= 180^{o} – 80^{o}

5b = 100^{o}

b = 100/5

b = 20^{o}

**34. If an angle is 60 ^{o} less than two times of its supplement, then the greater angle is **

**(a) 100 ^{o} (b) 80^{o} (c) 60^{o} (d) 120^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(a) 100^{o}

Let us assume the angle be P.

Then, its supplement is 180^{o}Â â€“ P

As per the condition in the question,

P = 2(180^{o} – P) â€“ 60^{o}

P = 360^{o} â€“ 2P â€“ 60^{o}

P + 2P = 300^{o}

3P = 300^{o}

P = 300/3

P = 100^{o}

So, its supplement is 180^{o}Â â€“ P = 180^{o} â€“ 100^{o} = 80^{o}

Therefore, the greater angle is 100^{o}.

**35. In Fig. 5.28, PQ || RS. If âˆ 1=(2a+b) ^{o} and âˆ 6=(3aâ€“b)^{o}, then the measure of âˆ 2 in terms of b is **

**(a) (2+b) ^{o} (b) (3â€“b)^{o} (c) (108â€“b)^{o} (d) (180â€“b)^{o}**

**Solution: –**

(c) (108â€“b)^{o}

From the question it is given that, âˆ 1 = (2a + b)^{o} and âˆ 6 = (3a – b)^{o}

SinceÂ âˆ 5 andÂ âˆ 6 forms a linear pair of angles

Then,

âˆ 5 = (180-3a + b)^{o} â€¦ [equation 1]

âˆ 5 =Â âˆ 1 = (180-3a + b)^{o} [Because Corresponding angles] â€¦equation (2)

From equation (2) we get,

2a + b = 180-3a + b

Â 5a = 180

Â a = 36^{0}

SinceÂ âˆ 1 andÂ âˆ 2 forms a linear pair so

âˆ 2 = 180^{0}–Â 2a-b

Substituting the value of a

âˆ 2 = 180^{0}–Â 72^{0} â€“ b

âˆ 2 = 108^{0}–Â b

**(a) 36 ^{o} (b) 108^{o} (c) 72^{o} (d) 144^{o}**

**Solution: –**

(b) 108^{o}

From the figure, PQ||RS.

From the question it is given that, a: b = 3: 2

So, let us assume a = 3m and b = 2m

We know that, sum of angles on the straight line is equal to 180^{o}

Then, âˆ a + âˆ b = 180^{o}

3m + 2m = 180^{o}

5m = 180^{o}

m = 180^{o}/5

m = 36^{o}

So, a = 3m = 3 Ã— 36^{o} = 108^{o}

b = 2m = 2 Ã— 36^{o} = 72

Therefore, âˆ a = âˆ f = 108^{o} [because corresponding angles]

**(b) âˆ 2 + âˆ 5 = 180 ^{o} **

**(c) âˆ 3 + âˆ 8 = 180 ^{o}**

**(d) âˆ 2 + âˆ 3 = 180 ^{o}**

**Solution:-**

(d) âˆ 2 + âˆ 3 = 180^{o}

We know that, interior opposite angles are equal

âˆ 2 = âˆ 3

**(a) 125 ^{o} (b) 135^{o} (c) 145^{o} (d) 120^{o}**

**Solution: –**

(b) 135^{o}

From the figure, PO is a straight line

We know that, sum of angles on the straight is equal to 180^{o}.

Then,

y +Â âˆ Â PQR = 180^{0}Â

y + 130^{0}Â = 180^{0}

y = 50^{o}

Then,

âˆ Â QOS =Â âˆ Â TSO [Co-interior angle]

x = 85^{0}

x + y = 135

**41. In Fig. 5.32, if PQ||RS and QR||TS, then the value a is **
