Solutions

Section – A

Solution 1.
Since the given number ends in 5. which means it is a multiple of 5. Hence it is a composite number. (1)

Solution 2.
(4x2 – 4a2 + a4) – b4 = 0 (1/2)
⇒ (2x – a2)2 – (b2)2 = 0
∴ (2x – a2 + b2) (2x – a2 – b2) = 0
(∵a2 – b2 = (a + b) (a – b))
⇒ x = [latex s=2]\frac { { a }^{ 2 }-{ b }^{ 2 } }{ 2 } [/latex] ,[latex s=2]\frac { { a }^{ 2 }+{ b }^{ 2 } }{ 2 } [/latex] (1/2)

Solution 3.
Suppose the triangles be ∆ABC and ∆DEF
[latex s=2]\frac { ar(\triangle ABC) }{ ar(\triangle DEF) } [/latex] = ([latex s=2]\frac {5 }{ 6 } [/latex])2 = [latex s=2]\frac {25 }{ 36 } [/latex] (1)
Hence, required ratio is 25 : 36

Solution 4.
It is given that Sn = 3n2 + 2n
∴Sn-1 = 3 (n-1)2 + 2(n- 1) = 3n2-4n + 1, nthterm, tn (1/2)
= (Sum ofnterms)-[Sumof(n-1)terms]
= Sn – Sn-1 = (3n2 + 2n) – (3n2 – 4n + 1) = (6n -1) (1/2)

Solution 5.
Since, the coordinates of given triangle are A(1, 3), B (-1,0) and C (4,0). So, the area of triangle ABC
= [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 2 } [/latex][1(0-0)+(-1)(0-3)+(3-0)] (1/2)
= [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 2 } [/latex] [3+12] = [latex s=2]\frac { 15 }{ 2 } [/latex] = 7.5.sp. unis. (1/2)

Solution 6.
LHS = cosec2θ – tan2(90° -θ)
= cosec2θ – cot2θ  (∵ cot θ = tan(90° -0))  (1/2)
= 1 = sin2θ + cos2θ
= sin2θ + sin2(90° – θ) = RHS (1/2)

Section – B

Solution 7.
Let if possible [latex ]\sqrt { 5 } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { p }{ q } [/latex], where p and q are co-prime.
∴5 × q2 = p2 ….(i)
⇒ 5 divides p
⇒ p = 5 × P1; p1 is an integer. ….(ii)  (1/2)
From (i) and (ii),
5 × q2 = (5 ×p1)2 = 52 × p12
⇒ q2 = 5 × p12 ⇒ 5 divides q (1/2)
⇒ q = 5 × q1; q1 is an integer …..(iii) (1/2)
From (ii) and (iii), we find 5 a common factor of p and q. It contradicts that p and q are co-prime. Hence, [latex]\sqrt { 5 } [/latex] is an irrational number. (1/2)

Solution 8.
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 10 Maths Paper 1 img 6

Solution 9.
Total number of events = 52  (1/2)
In a pack of 52 playing cards, there are 2 red queens and 2 black queens, respectively.
Number of cards that are neither red nor queen = 52 – (26 + 2) = 24  (1/2)
Now, favourable number of events = 24
So, required probability = [latex s=2]\frac { 24 }{ 52 } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 6 }{ 13 } [/latex]  (1)

Solution 10.

Solution 11.
CBSE Sample Papers for Class 10 Maths Paper 1 img 9

Solution 12.
P (Product = 6) = P [(1,6), (2,3), (3,2), (6,1)] (1)
Probability = [latex s=2]\frac { 4 }{ { 6 }^{ 2 } } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 4 }{ 36 } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 9 } [/latex]  (1)
Hence, the probability that the product of the two numbers on the top of the dice is 6, will be [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 9 } [/latex].

Let the policeman catch the thief at a distance of x metres from the police station.
By the time policeman starts, the thief is at a distance of 100 m.
So, by the time thief travels x -100 more distance with a speed of 100 m/min, the policeman travels x m to catch him, increasing speed by 10 m every minute.  (1/2)
Time taken by the thief to come to the catch point from the time the policeman starts,
t = [latex s=2]\frac { x-100 }{ 100 } [/latex] ….(i)   (1)
Distance travelled by the policeman in first minute = 100 m, and in second minute = 110, in third minute = 120.
and in tth minute = 100 +(t – 1) 10
Total distance covered by the policeman in t minutes is x [latex s=2]\frac { t }{ 2 } [/latex]{200+(t-1)10} (1)
