Board Paper Four Mark Question Video Explanations
Section D contains 11 questions of 4 marks each. Scroll down for explanatory answer and video solution to the 4-mark questions that appeared in CBSE Board Exam in 2016.
  1. Due to heavy floods in a state, thousand were rendered homeless. 50 schools collectively offered to the state government to provide place and the canvas for 1500 tents to be fixed by the government and decided to share the whole expenditure equally. The lower part of each tent is cylindrical of base radius 2.8 m and height 3.5 m, with conical upper part of same base radius but of height 2.1 m. If the canvas used to make the tents costs 120 per sq.m, find the amount shared by each school to set up the tents. What value is generated by the above problem? (use = π \\frac{22}{7})

  2. Prove that the lengths of two tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.

  5. Solve for x: \\frac{1}{x+1}) + \\frac{2}{x+2}) = \\frac{4}{x+4}), x ≠-1,-2,-4.

  6. The angle of elevation of the top Q of a vertical tower PQ from a point x on the ground is 600. From a point y, 40 m vertically above x, the angle of elevation of the top Q of tower is 450. Find the height of the tower PQ and the distance PX. (Use \\sqrt3) = 1.73).

  7. The houses in a row are numbered consecutively from 1 to 49. Show that there exists a value of x such that sum of numbers of houses proceeding the house numbered x is equal to sum of the numbers of houses following x.

  8. In the figure below, the vertices of ∆ ABC are A (4, 6), B(1, 5) and C (7, 2). A line -segment DE is drawn to intersect the sides AB and AC at D and E respectively such that \\frac{AD}{AB}) = \\frac{AE}{AC}) = \\frac{1}{3}) calculate the area of ∆ ADE and compare it with area of ∆ABC.
