= 360° – 245°
= 115°
∠DBC = 115° – 30°
= 85°

(a) 40°
(b) 35°
(c) 50°
(d) 45°
Solution:
(b) 35°
Hint:
3x – 40 + x + 20 + 2x – 10 = 180° (Sum of the angles of a triangle is 180°)
6x – 30 = 180°
6x = 180°+ 30°
x = $$\frac{210°}{6°}$$
= 35° Question 11.
PQ and RS are two equal chords of a circle with centre O such that ∠POQ = 70°, then ∠ORS = ……….
(a) 60°
(b) 70°
(c) 55°
(d) 80°
Solution:
(c) 55°
Hint: ∠POQ = 70° (Vertically opposite Angle)
∠ORS and ∠OSR are equal. (OR = OS radius of the circle)
∠ORS + ∠OSR + ∠ROS = 180°
x° + x° + 70° = 180°
2x + 70° = 180°
2x = 180° – 70° = 110°
x = $$\frac{110°}{2}$$ = 55°
∴ ∠ORS = 55° Question 12.
A chord is at a distance of 15cm from the centre of the circle of radius 25cm. The length of the chord is ……….
(a) 25cm
(b) 20cm
(c) 40cm
(d) 18cm
Solution:
(c) 40cm
Hint: In the right triangle OAC,
AC² = OA² – OC²
= 25² – 15²
= (25 + 15) (25 – 15)
= 40 × 10
AC² = 400
AC = $$\sqrt{400}$$
= 20
Length of the chord AB = 20 + 20 = 40 cm. Question 13.
In the figure, O is the centre of the circle and ∠ACB = 40° then ∠AOB = ……… (a) 80°
(b) 85°
(c) 70°
(d) 65°
Solution:
(a) 80°
Hint:
∠AOB = 2∠ACB (The angle subtended by an arc of the circle at the centre is double the angle subtended at the remaining part of the circle.)
= 2 × 40° = 80°

Question 14.
In a cyclic quadrilaterals ABCD, ∠A = 4x, ∠C = 2x the value of x is ……..
(a) 30°
(b) 20°
(c) 15°
(d) 25
Solution:
(a) 30°
Hint: ∠A + ∠C = 180° (Sum of the opposite angle of cyclic quadrilateral is 180°)
4x + 2x = 180°
x = $$\frac{180°}{6}$$
= 30° Question 15.
In the figure, O is the centre of a circle and diameter AB bisects the chord CD at a point E such that CE = ED = 8 cm and EB = 4cm. The radius of the circle is ……… (a) 8cm
(b) 4cm
(c) 6cm
(d) 10cm
Solution:
(i) 10cm
Hint: Let the radius OD be x.
OE = OB – BE
= x – 4 (OB radius of the circle)
In the ΔOED,
OD² = OE² + ED²
x² = (x – 4)² + 8²
x² = x² + 16 – 8x + 64
8x = 80
x = $$\frac{80}{8}$$
= 10 cm
Radius of the circle = 10 cm. Question 16.
In the figure, PQRS and PTVS are two cyclic quadrilaterals, If ∠QRS = 80°, then ∠TVS = ……… (a) 80°
(b) 100°

(d) 90°
Solution:
(a) 80°
Hint:
∠SPQ = 180° – 80° (Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral PQRS)
= 100°
∠V = 180° – 100° = 80° (Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral)

Question 17.
If one angle of a cyclic quadrilateral is 75°, then the opposite angle is ………
(a) 100°
(b) 105°
(c) 85°
(d) 90°
Solution:
(b) 105°
Hint:
Opposite angles = 180° – 75°

In the figure, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral in which DC produced to E and CF is drawn parallel to AB such that ∠ADC = 80° and ∠ECF = 20°, then BAD = ? (a) 100°
(b) 20°
(c) 120°
(d) 110°
Solution:
(c) 120°
Hint:
∠BAD = ∠ABC + ∠ECF (By exterior angle property)
= 100° + 20°
= 120° Question 19.
AD is a diameter of a circle and AB is a chord If AD = 30cm and AB = 24cm then the distance of AB from the centre of the circle is ………
(a) 10cm
(b) 9cm
(c) 8cm
(d) 6cm
Solution:
(b) 9cm
Hint: In ΔAOC,
AO = 15 cm
AC = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ AB
= $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 24
= 12 cm
In ΔAOC,
OC² = AO² – AC²
= 15² – 12²
= 225 – 144
= 81
OC = $$\sqrt{81}$$
= 9 cm Question 20.
In the given figure, If OP = 17cm, PQ = 30cm and OS is perpendicular to PQ, then RS is ………. (a) 10cm
(b) 6cm
(c) 7cm
(d) 9cm
Solution:
(d) 9cm
Hint:
In ΔOPR, OP = 17cm, PR = 30/2 = 15 cm.
OR² = OP² – PR²
= 17² – 15²
= (17 + 15) (17 – 15)
= 32 × 2
OR² = $$\sqrt{64}$$
= 8 cm
RS = OS – OR
= 17 – 8
= 9 cm
