**OR**

The following table shows the marks obtained by 100 students of class X in a school during a particular academic session. Find the mode of this distribution.

**Solutions**

**(Section-A)**

**Solution 1.**

Since: [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 7 } [/latex] × [latex s=2]\frac { 7 }{ 100 } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 100 } [/latex] = 0.01

The smallest rational number is [latex s=2]\frac { 7 }{ 100 } [/latex]** (1)**

**Solution 2.**

**Solution 3.**

**Solution 4.**

Let x = [latex]\sqrt { 6+\sqrt { 6 } +\sqrt { 6+ } } [/latex] ….Then, x = [latex]\sqrt { 6+x } [/latex]

On squaring both the sides, we get

x^{2} = 6+ x ⇒x^{2}-x-6 = 0

⇒ (x-3)(x + 2) = 0 ⇒ x = 3 or x = -2.

∵ x > 0

So, x = 3 **(1)**

**Solution 5.**

Since, a_{21} – a_{7} = 84 …(i)

Let the first term and common difference of

given A.P. be a and d respectively.

So, a_{21} = a+ (21 – 1)d = a + 20d

Now, a_{7}= a + (7 – 1)d = a + 6d

From equation (i),

(a + 20d) – (a + 6d) = 84

⇒ (20-6)d= 84 ⇒ 14d= 84 ⇒d = 6

Hence, the common difference of given A.P. is 6. **(1)**

**Solution 6.**

Let ABC and DEFbe two triangles such that ∆ABC ~ ∆DEF

Let AL, DM be their medians respectively

Hence required corresponding median = 8.8 cm.

**(Section-B)**

**Solution 7.**

The largest possible amount of cheque will betheHCF (6075,8505).

Applying Euclid’s division lemma to 8505 and 6075, we have,

8505 = 6075 × 1 +2430 **(1/2)**

Since remainder 2430 ≠ 0 again applying division lemma to 6075 and 2430

6075 = 2430 × 2+1215 **(1/2)**

Again remainder 1215 ≠ 0

So, again applying the division lemma to 2430 and 1215

2430=1215 × 2 +0 **(1/2)**

Here the remainder is zero

So,H.C.F= 1215 **(1/2)**

Therefore, the largest possible amount of each cheque will be 1215.

**Solution 8.**

Series: 70 + 68 + 66 + +40

Here a = 70, d = 68 – 70 = -2, tn = 1 = 40.

Now, tn = a + (n-1)d =70 + (n-1)(-2) ⇒ 40 = 70 – 2n + 2 ⇒n= 16** (1)**

∴ S_{n} =[latex s=2]\frac { n }{ 2 } [/latex][a + l] ⇒S_{n} = [latex s=2]\frac { 16 }{ 2 } [/latex][70 + 40] = 880 **(1)**

**Solution 9.**

S = {S, M, T, W, Th, F, Sa} **(1/2)**

n(S)=7

A non-leap year contains 365 days,

i.e., 52 weeks + 1 day.

E={Sa}

n(E)=1 **(1/2)**

∴ P(E) = [latex s=2]\frac { n(E) }{ n(S) } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 7 } [/latex] **(1)**

**Solution 10.**

Let there be x blue, y green and z white marbles in the jar.

Then, x+y+ z=54 …(i) **(1/2)**

∴ P(selecting a blue marble) = [latex s=2]\frac { x }{ 54 } [/latex] ⇒[latex s=2]\frac { x }{ 54 } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 3 } [/latex] ⇒ x = 18 **(1/2)**

Similarly, /’(selecting a green marble) = [latex s=2]\frac { y }{ 54 } [/latex] ⇒ [latex s=2]\frac { y }{ 54 } [/latex]= [latex s=2]\frac { 4 }{ 9 } [/latex] ⇒y = 24 **(1/2)**

Substituting thevaluesofxandyin(i),z= 12

Hence, the jar contains 12 white marbles. **(1/2)**

**Solution 11.**

Given lines,

3x + 2ky- 2 = 0

and 2x+ 5y-1 =0

Here, a_{1} =3,b_{1} =2k, c_{1} =-2

a_{2} = 2, b_{2} = 5, c_{2} =-1 **(1)**

Condition for parallel lines is [latex s=2]\frac { 3 }{ 2 } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 2k }{ 5 } [/latex] ⇒k = [latex s=2]\frac { 15 }{ 4 } [/latex] **(1)**

**Solution 12.**

Since points are collinear,

so, x_{1}(y_{2} – y_{3}) + x_{2}(y_{3} – y_{1}) + x_{3}(y_{1} – y_{2}) = 0 (1/2)

Taking (7, -2) as (x_{1}, y_{1}), (5,1) as (x_{2}, y_{2}) and (3, k) as (x_{3}, y_{3}), we have

7(1 – k) + 5(k + 2) + 3 (-2 -1) = 0 (1/2)

or, 7 – 7k + 5k + 10 – 9 = 0 ⇒ 2k = 8 ⇒k = 4. **(1)**

**(Section-C)**

**Solution 13.**

a^{2} – b^{2} = (a-b)(a +b) ….(1)

∵ a^{2} -b^{2} is a prime number** (1)**

∴One of the two factors = 1

So, a — b= 1 [∵a – b< a+b]

∵ The only divisors of a prime number are 1 and it self. **(1)**

(1) become a^{2} -b^{2}= 1 (a + b)

or a^{2} – b^{2} = a + b

e.g., 3^{2} – 2^{2} = 5 (which is prime)

⇒ 3^{2} – 2^{2} = 3 +2 **(1)**

**Solution 14.**

**Solution 15.**

**OR**

**Solution 16.**

**Solution 17.**

**Solution 18.**

Let there be a circle with centre O whereas AB, BC, CD and DA are tangents at P, Q, R and S respectively.

Here,

AP = AS …(i)

BP = BQ …(ii)

CR=CQ …(iii)

DR=DS …(iv)

[Tangents drawn from a point (outside the circle) on a given circle are equal in lengths]

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

**(1)**

(AP +BP) + (CR + DR) = (BQ + CQ) + (DS + AS)

AB + CD = BC + DA (Hence proved.)

**(1)**

**Solution 19.**

**Solution 20.**

**OR**

**Solution 21.**

**OR**

**Solution 22.**

**OR**

Since the coordinates of the mid-points of diagonals AC and BD are same.

∴ They bisect each other.

Hence, ABCD is a parallelogram.

**(1)**

**(Section-D)**

**Solution 23.**

**Solution 24.**

**Solution 25.**

Steps of construction:

(i) Draw a line AB of length 8 cm.

(ii) With centre A and radius 4 cm, draw a circle, which intersect AB at point P.

(iii) With centre B and radius 3 cm, draw the second circle.
