15th SSC CGL Tier II level Question Set, 4th on Geometry

ssc cgl tier 2 question set 15 geometry 4

The ten SSC CGL Tier II level geometry questions in this set are on,

  • median ratio at centroid,
  • properties of a rhombus,
  • properties of diagonals of a parallelogram,
  • equilateral triangle,
  • angle subtended by an arc of a circle,
  • cyclic quadrilateral,
  • similar triangles,
  • isosceles triangle,
  • right angled triangle and much more.

These geometry questions are specially selected for variety and depth with no two questions of same type.

For best results,

  1. this set should be used as a mini-mock test and
  2. after timed completion and self-scoring from answers,
  3. the difficulties faced should be cleared up from the corresponding solution set.

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 be solved quickly by identifying key geometric patterns and applying corresponding methods that are based on core concepts. In a few cases, awareness of algebraic patterns and methods becomes important for quick solution.

Answers to the questions, link to the detailed solutions and an useful guide to how best to take the test are given at the end.

Preferably you should go through the first three tutorials listed in the guide to refresh your knowledge before going through this mini-mock test.
