16th SSC CGL Tier II level Question Set, 5th on Geometry

This is the 16th question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL Tier II exam and the 5th on topic Geometry.

A few of the problems look simple but deceptively so. In the same way, a few of the problems seem to be quite difficult, but can nevertheless be solved quickly by applying strategic rules in geometry problem solving.

The answers to the questions and the link to the detailed solutions are given at the end followed by important related tutorials, question sets and solution sets on Geometry.

  4. $68^0$

Problem 6.

Two circles touch each other externally at A. PQ is a direct common tangent to the two circles with P and Q as points of contact. If $\angle APQ=35^0$ then $\angle PQA$ is,

  1. $75^0$
  2. $65^0$
  3. $35^0$
  4. $55^0$

Problem 7.

  1. $90^0$
  2. $110^0$
  3. $120^0$
  4. $60^0$

Problem 8.

  1. $36^0$
  2. $28^0$
  3. $32^0$
  4. $56^0$

Problem 10.

A square is inscribed in a quarter circle in such a manner that two of its adjacent vertices lie on two radii at an equal distance from the centre, while the other two vertices lie on the circular arc. If the square has sides of length $x$, then the radius of the circle is,

  1. $\displaystyle\frac{\sqrt{5}x}{\sqrt{2}}$
  2. $\sqrt{2}x$
  3. $\displaystyle\frac{16x}{\pi + 4}$
  4. $\displaystyle\frac{2x}{\sqrt{\pi}}$
