Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:

Question 1.

If the length of a chord of a circle is 16 cm and is at a distance of 15 cm from the centre of the circle, then the radius of the circle is

(a) 15 cm

(b) 16 cm

(c) 17 cm

(d) 34 cm

Solution:

Length of chord AB of circle = 16 cm

Distance from the centre OL = 15 cm

Let OA be the radius, then in right ∆OAL,

OA^{2} = OL^{2} + AL^{2}

16

= (15)^{2} + \(\frac { 16 }{ 2 }\) = 15^{2} + 8^{2}

= 225 + 64 = 289 = (17)^{2}

∴ OA = 17 cm

Hence radius of the circle = 17 cm (c)

Question 2.

The radius of a circle Js 6 cm. The perpendicular distance from the centre of the circle to the chord which is 8 cm in length, is

Solution:

Radius of the cirlce (r) = 6 cm

Perpendicular distance from centre = ?

Length of chord = 8 cm

Let AB be chord, OL is the distance

In right ∆OAL

OA^{2} = AL^{2} + OL^{2}

Question 3.

If O is the centre of a circle of radius r and AB is a chord of the circle at a distance \(\frac { r }{ 2 }\) from O, then ∠BAO =

(a) 60°

(b) 45°

(c) 30°

(d) 15°

Solution:

r is the radius of the circle with centre O

AB is the chord, at a distance of \(\frac { r }{ 2 }\) from the centre

Question 4.

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral such that ∠ADB = 30° and ∠DCA = 80°, then ∠DAB=

(a) 70°

(b) 100°

(c) 125°

(d) 150°

Solution:

ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral ∠DCA = 80° and ∠ADB = 30°

∵∠ADB = ∠ACB (Angles in the same segment)

∴ ∠ACB = 30°

∴ ∠BCD = 80° + 30° = 110°

∵ ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral

∴∠BAD + ∠BCD = 180°

⇒ ∠BAD + 110°= 180°

⇒ ∠BAD = 180°- 110° = 70°

or ∠DAB = 70° (a)

Question 5.

A chord of length 14 cm is at a distance of 6 cm from the centre of a circle. The length of another chord at a distance of 2 cm from the centre of the circle is

(a) 12 cm

(b) 14 cm

(c) 16 cm

(d) 18 cm

Solution:

In a circle AB chord = 14 cm

and distance from centre OL = 6 cm

Let r be the radius of the circle, then OA^{2} = AL^{2} + OL^{2}

⇒ r^{2} = (7)^{2} + (6)^{2} = 49 + 36 = 85

In the same circle length of another chord CD = ?

Distance from centre = 2 cm

∴ r^{2} = OM^{2} + MD^{2}

⇒ 85 = (2)^{2} + DM^{2}

⇒ 85 = 4 + DM^{2}

⇒ DM^{2} = 85-4 = 81 = (9)^{2}

∴ DM = 9

∴ CD = 2 x DM = 2 x 9 = 18 cm

∴Length of another chord = 18 cm (d)

Question 6.

One chord of a circle is known to be 10 cm. The radius of this circle must be

(a) 5 cm

(b) greater than 5 cm

(c) greater than or equal to 5 cm

(d) less than 5 cm

Solution:

Length of chord of a circle = 10 cm

Length of radius of the circle greater than half of the chord

More than \(\frac { 10 }{ 2 }\) = 5 cm (b)

Question 7.

ABC is a triangle with B as right angle, AC = 5 cm and AB = 4 cm. A circle is drawn with O as centre and OC as radius. The length of the chord of this circle passing through C and B is

(a) 3 cm

(b) 4 cm

(c) 5 cm

(d) 6 cm

Solution:

In right ∆ABC, ∠B = 90°

AC = 5 cm, AB = 4 cm

∴ BC^{2} = AC^{2 }-AB^{2}

= 5^{2} – 4^{2} = 25 – 16

= 9 = (3)^{2}

∴ BC = 3 cm

∴ Length of chord BC = 3 cm (a)

Question 8.

If AB, BC and CD are equal chords of a circle with O as centre, and AD diameter then ∠AOB =

(a) 60°

(b) 90°

(c) 120°

(d) none of these

Solution:

In a circle chords AB = BC = CD

O is the centre of the circle

∴ ∠AOB = cannot be found (d)

Question 9.

Let C be the mid-point of an arc AB of a circle such that m \(\breve { AB }\) = 183°. If the region bounded by the arc ACB and line segment AB is denoted by S, then the centre O of the circle lies

(a) in the interior of S

(b) in the exterior of S

(c) on the segment AB

(d) on AB and bisects AB

Solution:

\(\breve { AB }\) = 183°

∴ AB is the diameter of the circle with centre O and C is the mid point of arc AB

Line segment AB = S

∴ Centre will lie on AB (c)

Question 10.

In a circle, the major arc is 3 ti.nes the minor arc. The corresponding central angles and the degree measures of two arcs are

(a) 90° and 270°

(b) 90° and 90°

(c) 270° adn 90°

(d) 60° and 210°

Solution:

In a circle, major arc is 3 times the minor arc i.e. arc ACB = 3 arc ADB

∴ Reflex ∠AOB = 3∠AOB

But angle at O = 360°

and let ∠AOB = x

Then reflex ∠ADB = x

x + 3x – 360°

⇒ 4x = 360°

⇒ x = \(\frac { { 62 }^{ \circ } }{ 2 }\) = 90°

∴ 3x = 90° x 3 = 270°

Here angles are 270° and 90° (c)

Question 11.

If A and B are two points on a circle such that m(\(\breve { AB }\)) = 260°. A possible value for the angle subtended by arc BA at a point on the circle is

(a) 100°

(b) 75°

(c) 50°

(d) 25°

Solution:

A and B are two points on the circle such that reflex ∠AOB = 260°

∴ ∠AOB = 360° – 260° = 100°

C is a point on the circle

∴ By joining AC and BC,

∠ACB = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)∠AOB = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x 100° = 50° (c)

Question 12.

An equilateral triangle ABC is inscribed in a circle with centre O. The measures of ∠BOC is

(a) 30°

(b) 60°

(c) 90°

(d) 120°

Solution:

∆ABC is an equilateral triangle inscribed in a circle with centre O

∴ Measure of ∠BOC = 2∠BAC

= 2 x 60° = 120° (d)

Question 13.

If two diameters of a circle intersect each other at right angles, then quadrilateral formed by joining their end points is a

(a) rhombus

(b) rectangle

(c) parallelogram

(d) square

Solution:

Two diameter of a circle AB and CD intersect each other at right angles

AD, DB, BC and CA are joined forming a quad. ABCD.

∵ The diagonals are equal and bisect each other at right angles

∴ ACBD is a square (d)

Question 14.

(a) 1 : 4

(b) 3 : 4

(c) 3 : 8

(d) 1 : 2

Solution:

Arc ABC of a circle and ∠ABC = 135°

Join OA and OC

∴ Angle subtended by arc ABC at the centre = 2 x ∠ABC = 2 x 135° = 270°

Angle at the centre of the circle = 360°

∴ Ratio with circumference = 270° : 360° = 3:4 (b)

Question 15.

The chord of a circle is equal to its radius. The angle subtended by this chord at the minor arc of the circle is

(a) 60°

(b) 75°

(c) 120°

(d) 150°

Solution:

The chord of a circle = radius of the circle In the figure OA = OB = AB

∴ ∠AOB = 60°

(Each angle of an equilateral = 60°) (a)

Question 16.

PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral such that PR is a diameter of the circle. If ∠QPR = 67° and ∠SPR = 72°, then ∠QRS =

(a) 41°

(b) 23°

(c) 67°

(d) 18°

Solution:

PQRS is a cyclic quadrilateral with centre O and ∠QPR = 67°

∠SPR = 72°

∴ ∠QPS = 67° + 72° = 139°

∵ ∠QPS + ∠QRS = 180° (Sum of opposite angles of a cyclic quad.)

⇒ 139° + ∠QRS = 180°

⇒ ∠QRS = 180° – 139° = 41° (a)

Question 17.

If A, B, C are three points on a circle with centre O such that ∠AOB = 90° and ∠BOC = 120°, then ∠ABC =

(a) 60°

(b) 75°

(c) 90°

(d) 135°

Solution:

A, B and C are three points on a circle with centre O

∠AOB = 90° and ∠BOC = 120°

∴ ∠AOC = 360° – (120° + 90°)

= 360° -210°= 150°

But ∠AOC is at the centre made by arc AC and ∠ABC at the remaining part of the circle

∴ ∠ABC = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) ∠AOC

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x 150° = 75° (b)

In the figure, if chords AB and CD of the circle intersect each other at right angles, then x + y =

(a) 45°

(b) 60°

(c) 75°

(d) 90°

Solution:

In the circle, AB and CD are two chords which intersect each other at P at right angle i.e. ∠CPB = 90°

∠CAB and ∠CDB are in the same segment

∴ ∠CDB = ∠CAB = x

Now in ∆PDB,

Ext. ∠CPB = ∠D + ∠DBP

⇒ 90° = x + y (∵ CD ⊥ AB)

Hence x + y = 90° (d)

Question 22.

In the figure, if ∠ABC = 45°, then ∠AOC=

(a) 45°

(b) 60°

(c) 75°

(d) 90°

Solution:

∵ arc AC subtends

∠AOC at the centre of the circle and ∠ABC

at the remaining part of the circle

∴ ∠AOC = 2∠ABC

= 2 x 45° = 90°

Hence ∠AOC = 90° (d)

Question 23.

In the figure, chords AD and BC intersect each other at right angles at a point P. If ∠D AB = 35°, then ∠ADC =

(a) 35°

(b) 45°

(c) 55°

(d) 65°

Solution:

Two chords AD and BC intersect each other at right angles at P, ∠DAB = 35°

AB and CD are joined

In ∆ABP,

Ext. ∠APC = ∠B + ∠A

⇒ 90° = ∠B + 35°

∠B = 90° – 35° = 55°

∵ ∠ABC and ∠ADC are in the same segment

∴ ∠ADC = ∠ABC = 55° (c)

Question 24.

In the figure, O is the centre of the circle and ∠BDC = 42°. The measure of ∠ACB is

(a) 42°

(b) 48°

(c) 58°

(d) 52°

Solution:

In the figure, O is the centre of the circle

∠BDC = 42°

∠ABC = 90° (Angle in a semicircle)

and ∠BAC and ∠BDC are in the same segment of the circle.

∴ ∠BAC = ∠BDC = 42°

Now in ∆ABC,

∠A + ∠ABC + ∠ACB = 180° (Sum of angles of a triangle)

⇒ 42° + 90° + ∠ACB = 180°

⇒ 132° + ∠ACB – 180°

⇒ ∠ACB = 180° – 132° = 48° (b)

Question 25.

In a circle with centre O, AB and CD are two diameters perpendicular to each other. The length of chord AC is

Solution:

AB and CD are two diameters of a circle with centre O

If AB is a chord of a circle, P and Q are the two points on the circle different from A and B,then

(a) ∠APB = ∠AQB

(b) ∠APB + ∠AQB = 180° or ∠APB = ∠AQB

(c) ∠APB + ∠AQB = 90°

(d) ∠APB + ∠AQB = 180°

Solution:

AB is chord of a circle,

P and Q are two points other than from points A and B

∵ ∠APB and ∠AQB are in the same segment of the circle

∴ ∠APB = ∠AQB (a)

Question 28.

AB and CD are two parallel chords of a circle with centre O such that AB = 6 cm and CD = 12 cm. The chords are on the same side of the centre and the distance between them is 3 cm. The radius of the circle is

Solution:

AB and CD are two parallel chords of a circle with centre O

Let r be the radius of the circle AB = 6 cm, CD = 12 cm

and distance between them = 3 cm

Join OC and OA, LM = 3 cm

Let OM = x, then OL = x + 3

Question 29.

In a circle of radius 17 cm, two parallel chords are drawn on opposite side of a diameter. This distance between the chords is 23 cm. If the length of one chord is 16 cm then the length of the other is

(a) 34 cm

(b) 15 cm

(c) 23 cm

(d) 30 cm

Solution:

Radius of a circle = 17 cm

The distance between two parallel chords = 23 cm

AB || CD and LM = 23 cm

Join OA and OC,

∴ OA = OC = 17 cm

Let OL = x, then OM = (23 – x) cm

AB = 16 cm

Now in right ∆OAL,

OA^{2} = OL2^{2} + AL^{2}

⇒ (17)^{2} = x^{2} + AL^{2}

⇒ 289 = x^{2} + AL^{2}

Question 30.

In the figure, O is the centre of the circle such that ∠AOC = 130°, then ∠ABC =

(a) 130°

(b) 115°

(c) 65°

(d) 165°

Solution:

O is the centre of the circle and ∠AOC = 130°

Reflex ∠AOC = 360° – 130° = 230°

Now arc ADB subtends ∠AOC at the centre and ∠ABC at the remaining part of the circle

∴ ∠ABC = \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)reflex ∠AOC

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) x 230°= 115° (b)
