Using distance formula Solution 3. Solution 4. Solution 5. Solution 6. cbse sample paper 2021 class 10 and cbse sample paper 2021 class 12

Section-B

Solution 7.
First number divisible by 8 between 200 and 500 is 208.
If form an A.P. = 208,216,224,……..,496.
Here, an = 496, a = 208, d = 8
an = a + (n – l)d  (1)
496 = 208 + (n-l)8
(n-1)8 = 496-208
(n-1) = [latex s=2]\frac { 288 }{ 8 } [/latex] ⇒ n-1=36 ⇒n=37   (1)

Solution 8. Solution 9. Solution 10.
Natural numbers between 101 and 999 divisible by 5 and 2 both, must be divisible by 10.
∴ {110,120,………, 990} are numbers divisible by both 2 and 5.   (1/2)
If forms anA.P., in which a = 110, d = 10 and an = 990.   (1/2)
an = a + (n-1)d ⇒ 990 = 110 + (n- 1) 10
⇒ 99 =11+ (n-1)=>88 + 1= n ⇒n = 89   (1)

Solution 11.
Since number of white balls in the bag = 15
Let the number of black balls in the bag = x
As, P (drawing a black ball) = 3 x P (drawing a white ball)   (1)
[latex s=2]\frac { x }{ 15+x } =3\times \frac { 15 }{ 15+x } [/latex] ⇒ x=45 [∵x+15 ≠ 0]   (1)
Hence, the number ofblack balls in the bag is 45.

Solution 12.
S = {BBB, BBQ BGB, BGQ GBB, GBQ GGB, GGG} ; n(S) = 8
E = {BBB, BBQ BGB, BGQ GBB, GBQ GGB}; n(E) = 7  (1)

Section-C

Solution 13.
Let us first find the H.C.F. of 210and 55.
Applying Euclid’s division lemma on 210 and 55, we get
210=55 x3 + 45 ….(i) (1)
Since the remainder 45 ^ 0. So, we now apply division lemma on the divisor 55 and the remainder 45 to get
55 = 45 × 1 + 10 ….(ii)     (1/2)
We consider the divisor 45 and the remainder 10 and apply division lemma to get
45 = 4 × 10 + 5 …(iii)   (1/2)
We consider the divisor 10 and the remainder 5 and apply division lemma to get
10=5 × 2 + 0….(iv)
We observe that the remainder at this stage is zero. So, the last divisor i.e., 5 is the H.C.F of210 and 55.
∴ 5 = 210 × 5 + 55y ⇒ y = $\frac { -1045 }{ 55 }$ = (-19)   (1)

Solution 14.
As 3x2 – 5 divides f(x) completely
∴ (3x2 – 5) is a factor of f(x)
⇒ 3$\left( { x }^{ 2 }-\frac { 5 }{ 3 } \right)$ is a factor of f(x) Solution 15. Solution 16.  Solution 17. Solution 18.  OR Solution 19.
Since, distance between (x, y) and (5,1) = Distance between (x, y) and (-1,5)
So, $\sqrt { { (x-5) }^{ 2 }+{ (y-1) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { { (x-(-1)) }^{ 2 }+{ (y-5) }^{ 2 } }$  (1)
Squaring on both sides, we get
(x-5)2 + (y- 1)2 = (x+ 1)2+(y-5)2
(x2– lOx + 25) + (y2 -2y + 1) = (x2 + 2x + 1)+ (y2-10y + 25)  (1)
So, -12x = -8y ⇒ 12x = 8y ⇒ 3x = 2y (Hence proved).  (1)
OR
Let A (3,0), B(6,4) and C (-1,3) be the vertices of the triangle.
Using distance formula,
AB = $\sqrt { { (4-0) }^{ 2 }+{ (6-3) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { 25 }$ = 5 units   (1/2)
BC = $\sqrt { { (3-4) }^{ 2 }+{ (-1-6) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { 50 } =5\sqrt { 2 }$  (1/2)
CA = $\sqrt { { (0-3) }^{ 2 }+{ (3+1) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { 25 }$ = 5 units   (1/2)
Now, (5)2 + (5)2 = ${ \left( 2\sqrt { 5 } \right) }^{ 2 }$
=> AB2 + CA2 = BC2 [Follow Pythagoras theorem]   (1)
Also, AB = CA = 5 units
So, ∆ABC is a right-angled isosceles triangle.   (1/2)
Hence, the given points are the vertices of a right-angled isosceles triangle.

Solution 20. Solution 21.
Median and altitude of an equilateral triangle are same and passing through the centre of incircle and centre divides the median in ratio 2:1.
∴ In ∆ABD, ∠D = 90° By Pythagoras theorem
⇒ AD = $\sqrt { 108 }$ = 6$\sqrt { 3 }$ cm
AO:OD = 2: 1   (1)
∴OD = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 3 } [/latex] AD = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 3 } [/latex] × 6$\sqrt { 3 }$ = 2$\sqrt { 3 }$   (1/2)
Now, radius of circle = 2$\sqrt { 3 }$ = 2 × 1.73 = 3.46 cm   (1/2)
Area of shaded region = Area of equilateral ∆ABC – Area of circle   (1)
= $\frac { \sqrt { 3 } }{ 4 }$(12)2 -(2$\sqrt { 3 }$)2 × π
= 1.73 × 36 – 12 × 3.14 = 62.28 – 37.68 = 24.6 cm2.

Solution 22.
Suppose,
r = Radius of the conical vessel = 5 cm
h = Height of the conical vessel = 24 cm
r2 = Radius of the cylindrical vessel = 10 cm
Suppose water rises up to a height h 2 cm in the cylindrical vessel.
A.T.Q,
Volume of the water in cylindrical vessel = Volume of water in conical vessel
⇒[latex ]\pi { r }_{ 2 }^{ 2 }{ h }_{ 2 }=\frac { 1 }{ 3 } \pi { r }_{ 1 }^{ 2 }{ h }_{ 1 }[/latex] (1)
⇒[latex ]3{ r }_{ 2 }^{ 2 }{ h }_{ 2 }={ r }_{ 1 }^{ 2 }{ h }_{ 1 }[/latex] ⇒ 3 × 10 × 10 × h2 = 5 × 5 × 24 (1)
h2 = [latex s=2]\frac { 5\times 5\times 24 }{ 3\times 10\times 10 } [/latex] ⇒ h2 = 2 cm  (1)
Hence, the rise in the water level in the cylindrical vessel = 2 cm.
OR
Increase in the height of water level in the cylindrical vessel due to sphere (h) = [latex s=2]\frac { 32 }{ 9 } [/latex] cm
Radius of the sphere (R) = 6 cm  (1/2)
Suppose radius of the cylindrical vessel be r.
Volume ofwater in cylinder = Volume of sphere  (1)
πr2h = [latex s=2]\frac { 4 }{ 3 } [/latex]πR3
⇒ r2 = [latex s=2]\frac { 4\times { 6 }^{ 3 }\times 9 }{ 3\times 32 } [/latex] ⇒ r = $\sqrt { 27\times 3 }$ = 9cm (1)
Hence, diameter of the cylindrical vessel = 18 cm. (1/2)

Section-D

Solution 23. Solution 24. Suppose the man is standing on the deck of the ship at point A.
Suppose CE be the hill with a base at C.  (1)
Given that the angle of elevation of point E from A is 60° and the angle of depression of point C from A is 30°.
∠DAE = 60°, ∠CAD = 30°  (1/2)
Now, ∠CAD = ∠ACB = 30° [Alternate angles]
AB = 10 m   (1/2)
Let ED = h m and BC = x m.
In ∆EAD, tan 60° = [latex s=2]\frac { ED }{ AD } [/latex] ⇒ $\sqrt { 3 }$ = [latex s=2]\frac { h }{ x } [/latex] ⇒ h = x$\sqrt { 3 }$ …..(i)   (1/2)

In ∆ABC, tan30° = [latex s=2]\frac { AB }{ BC } [/latex] ⇒ $\frac { 1 }{ \sqrt { 3 } }$ = [latex s=2]\frac { 10 }{ x } [/latex] ⇒ x = 10$\sqrt { 3 }$ …(ii)  (1/2)
So, distance of the hill from the ship = 10$\sqrt { 3 }$m
From (i) and (ii), h = 10$\sqrt { 3 }$×$\sqrt { 3 }$ = 30m
Hence, height of the hill = h+ 10 = 30+ 10 = 40 m. (1)
OR
Let A be the reflection of the bird B in the lake, then CB = CA = h metres (say). ∴NB-{h — 50) m and    (1)
AN =(h + 50) m
Let ON be dmetres.
tan 60° = [latex s=2]\frac { h+50 }{ d } [/latex] ⇒ $\sqrt { 3 }$ =[latex s=2]\frac { h+50 }{ d } [/latex] and

tan 30° = [latex s=2]\frac { h-50 }{ d } [/latex] ⇒d = (h-50)$\sqrt { 3 }$

Thus, 3 = [latex s=2]\frac { h+50 }{ h-50 } [/latex] ⇒ h = 100      (1)

Solution 25.
Let a = 50 and h = 20 OR
Less than type frequency distribution We first draw the coordinate x-axis with lower limits of the daily income (in ?) along the horizontal axis and the cumulative frequency along the vertical axis. Then, we plot the points (120, 12), (140, 26), (160,34), (180,40), (200,50) and join these points by a free hand smooth curve. Solution 26.
Let the radius of base and height of the solid right circular cylinder be r cm and h cm, respectively,
Here, r + h = 37 ….(i)  (1/2)
Total surface area = 1628 sq cm
∴ 2πr(r + h)= 1628 …(ii)  (1/2)
From (i) and (ii), we get
2πr(37) =1628 => 2×[latex s=2]\frac { 22 }{ 7 } [/latex]×r = 44
∴ r =7cm  (1)
After substituting the value of r in (i), we get
7 + h = 37
∴ h = 30cm  (1)
Then, volume of the cylinder = πr2h
= [latex s=2]\frac { 22 }{ 7 } [/latex] ×7×7×30 = 4630 cm2    (1)
Therefore, the volume of the cylinder is 4,620 cm3.
