**1. Find the volume of a cube whose perimeter of each face is 20 feet.**

A. 125

B. 64

C. 216

D. 81

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

The perimeter of one face of a cube = 20 feet

The face of a cube has 4 edges.

The length of an edge of the cube = 20/4 = 5 feet.

The volume of the cube having A as an edge is A^{3} unit^{3}.

Then volume = 53 = 125 feet^{3}.

Hence the answer is 125.

**2. The length of diagonal of a cube is (14 x) cm. The volume of the cube is:**

A. 2748 cm3

B. 2744 cm3

C. 588 cm3

D. 3528 cm3

**Answer**

No explanation

**3. The maximum length of a pencil that can be kept in a rectangular box of dimension 8 cm x 6 cm x 2 cm, is :**

A. 2 cm

B. 5 cm

C. 8 cm

D. 10 cm

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

No explanation

**4. Find the total surface area of the cube whose volume is 1000cm ^{3}.**

A. 600 cm^{2}

B. 100 cm^{2}

C. 200 cm^{2 }

D. 586 cm^{2}

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

The volume of a cube having side a = a3.

Given a^{3} = 1000

Then a = 10 cm

Total surface area = 6a^{2}cm^{2}

= 6 x (10)^{2} = 6 x 100 = 600cm^{2}.

Hence the answer is 600cm^{2}.

**5. A river 2 m deep and 45 m wide is running at the rate of 3 km/hr. The amount of water that runs into the sea per minute, is:**

A. 4500 m^{3}

B. 27000 m^{3}

C. 3000 m^{3}

D. 2700 m^{3}

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

No explanation

**6. A hall is 15 m long and 12 m broad. If the sum of the areas of the floor and the ceiling is equal to the sum of the areas of four walls, the volume of the hall is:**

A. 720

B. 900

C. 1200

D. 1800

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option C

** Explanation:**

2(15 + 12) x h = 2(15 x 12)

h = 180/27 m = 20/3 m.

Volume = (15 x 12 x 20/3)m^{3} = 1200 m^{3}.

**7. The volume of a wall. 5 times as high as it is broad and 8 times as long as it is high, is 12.8 m3. The breadth of the wall is:**

A. 30 cm

B. 40 cm

C. 22.5 cm

D. 25 cm

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option B

** Explanation:**

No explanation

**8. A right triangle with sides 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm is rotated the side of 3 cm to form a cone. The volume of the cone so formed is:**

A. 12 π cm3

B. 15 πcm3

C. 16 π cm3

D. 20 π cm3

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

Clearly, we have r = 3 cm and h = 4 cm.

Volume = 1/3 x π x r^{2} x h

= (1/3 x π x 3^{2} x 4 )cm3

= 12 cm3.

**9. The area of the base of a rectangular tank is 6500 sq. cm. and the volume of water contained in it 2.6 cubic meters. The depth of water is :**

A. 3.5 m

B. 4 m

C. 5 m

D. 8 m

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option B

** Explanation:**

No explanation

**10. A cylinder of radius 5m and height 7m is melted to form 11 equal cuboids. Find the volume of the cuboid.**

A. 10 m³

B. 20 m³

C. 50 m³

D. 100 m³

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option C

** Explanation:**

Volume of the cylinder =pir²h = 550m³

Volume of the cuboid

= volume of the cylinder/no of cuboid formed

= 550/11 = 50 m³

**11. If each side of a cube is doubled, then its volume :**

A. is doubled

B. becomes 4 times

C. becomes 6 times

D. becomes 8 times

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option D

** Explanation:**

No explanation

**12. The number of revolutions a wheel of diameter 21cm takes in travelling a distance of 396m is**

A. 600m

B. 300m

C. 150m

D. 115m

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

Diameter(d)=21cm, Distance=396m=39600cm

No. of revolutions = Distance travelled/Circumference

= 39600/ *π**d = 600

**13. The area of the largest square that can be inscribed in a circle of radius 5cm is**

A. 12.5 cm²

B. 25 cm²

C. 50 cm²

D. 100 cm²

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option C

** Explanation:**

Radius=5cm

So, side of the square is 5cm,Therefore

Diagonal of the square = Diameter of the circle

2a = 2r = 10cm

a²=50 cm²

**14. The area of the largest circle that can be inscribed in a square of side a is**

A. ?a²/4

B. ?a²/2

C. ?a²/8

D. ?a²

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option A

** Explanation:**

Let, the radius of the circle is r

Diameter of the Circle=Side of the square=2r=a

Area = pia²/4

**15. A 3 cm cube is cut into as many 1 cm cubes as possible. What is the ratio of the surface area of the larger cube to that of the sum of the surface areas of the smaller cubes?**

A. 3:1

B. 1:3

C. 1:9

D. 27:1

**Answer**

**Ans:**Option B

** Explanation:**

Surface area of a 3 cm cube =6*3² = 54 cm²,

Surface area of a 1 cm cube =6*1² = 6 cm²

No. of smaller cubes formed = Volume of larger cube/Volume of smaller cube

=3³/1³ = 27 Ratio = 54/(27*6) = 1(cat)
