SSC CGL level Question Set 21, Geometry 3

Twentyfirst SSC CGL level Question Set, 3rd on topic Geometry

SSC CGL level question set 21 geometry 3

This is the twentyfirst question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 3rd on topic Geometry. The questions generally are on circles but involve concepts on triangles and quadrilaterals also.

Method for taking the test and get the best results from the test set:

  1. Before start, go through the three relevant tutorials, Geometry basic concepts part 1, Geometry basic concepts part 2,  Geometry basic and rich concepts part 3 on Circles, Basic and Rich concepts Geometry Part 4 on Arc angle subtending concepts, Basic and Rich Concepts Geometry Part 5 on Proof of Median relations or any other short but good material to refresh your concepts if you so require. This question set is in fact the set of exercise problems at the end of the third tutorial. Don't do the exercise as you are preparing for a hard competitive test. For you, taking the test will involve a different and more stringent method.
  2. Answer the questions in an undisturbed environment with no interruption, full concentration and alarm set at 12 minutes.
  3. When the time limit of 12 minutes is over, mark up to which you have answered, but go on to complete the set.
  4. At the end, refer to the answers given at the end to mark your score at 12 minutes. For every correct answer add 1 and for every incorrect answer deduct 0.25 (or whatever is the scoring pattern in the coming test). Write your score on top of the answer sheet with date and time.
  5. Identify and analyze the problems that you couldn't do to learn how to solve those problems.
  6. Identify and analyze the problems that you solved incorrectly. Identify the reasons behind the errors. If it is because of your shortcoming in topic knowledge improve it by referring to only that part of concept from the best source you get hold of. You might google it. If it is because of your method of answering, analyze and improve those aspects specifically.
  7. Identify and analyze the problems that posed difficulties for you and delayed you. Analyze and learn how to solve the problems using basic concepts and relevant problem solving strategies and techniques.
  8. Give a gap before you take a 10 problem practice test again.

Important: both practice tests and mock tests must be timed, analyzed, improving actions taken and then repeated. With intelligent method, it is possible to reach highest excellence level in performance.

Now set the stopwatch alarm and start taking this test. It is not difficult.

  4. 18

Problem 3.

In an isosceles $\triangle ABC$, $AB=AC$. A circle passing through $B$ and touching AC at its middle point, intersects $AB$ at $P$. Then $AP : AB$ is,

  1. 2 : 3
  2. 4 : 1
  3. 1 : 4
  4. 3 : 5

Problem 4.

In  $\triangle ABC$, $\angle C$ is an obtuse angle. The bisectors of exterior angles at $A$ and $B$ meet extended $BC$ and $AC$ at $D$ and $E$ respectively. If $AB = AD=BE$ then $\angle ACB$ is

  1. $105^0$
  2. $110^0$
  3. $135^0$
  4. $108^0$

Problem 5.

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4

Problem 6.

In right $\triangle ABC$, $BL$ and $CM$ are two medians with right angle at $\angle A$ and $BC=5cm$. If $BL = \displaystyle\frac{3\sqrt{5}}{2}$, then the length of $CM$ is,

  1. $2\sqrt{5}$cm
  2. $10\sqrt{2}$cm
  3. $5\sqrt{2}$cm
  4. $4\sqrt{5}$ cm

Problem 7.

In $\triangle ABC$, $D$ and $E$ are two points on the sides $AC$ and $BC$ respectively, such that $DE=18$cm, $CE=5$cm and $\angle DEC = 90^0$. If $tan \angle ABC = 3.6$, then $AC : CD$ is

  1. $2BC : CE$
  2. $BC : 2CE$
  3. $CE : 2BC$
  4. $2CE : BC$

Problem 8.

$AB$ is a chord to a circle and $TAP$ is the tangent to the circle at $A$. If $\angle BAT = 75^0$ and $\angle BAC= 45^0$, where $C$ is a point on the circle, then $\angle ABC$ is,

  1. $40^0$
  2. $60^0$
  3. $70^0$
  4. $45^0$

Problem 9.

  1. $\sqrt {140}$cm
  2. $\sqrt {145}$cm
  3. $\sqrt {135}$cm
