**Choose the correct answer from the given four options (3 to 19):**

**Question 3. Sum of all interior angles of a 11-sided polygon is**

(a) 1620°

(b) 1440°

(c) 1260

(d) none of these

**Answer:**

Sum of all interior angles of an 11-sided polygon is

= (2 × n – 4 ) × 90°

= (2 × 11 – 4) × 90°

= 18 × 90 = 1620 (a

**Question 4. If each interior angle of a regular polygon is 144°, then number of sides of polygon is**

(a) 8

(b) 9

(c) 10

(d) 11

#### Answer:

Each interior angle of a regular polygon is 144°

Then 2n-4/n × 90° = 144°

⇒ 2n-4/n = 144°/90°

⇒ 10n – 20° = 8n

⇒ 10n – 8n = 20°

⇒ 2n = 20°

⇒ n = 10

∴ It is 10-sided polygon. (c)

**Question 5. If the sum of all interior angles of a polygon is 1260°, then number of sides of polygon is**

(a) 6

(b) 7

(c) 8

(d) 9

#### Answer

Sum of all interior angles of a polygon = 1260°

∴ (2n – 4) × 90° = 1260°

⇒ 2n – 4 =1260°/90°

⇒ 2n = 14 + 4 = 18

⇒ n = 18/2 = 9

∴ Polygon is 9-sided. (d)

**(ML Aggarwal Quadrilaterals Shapes MCQs Class 8 ICSE Maths)**

**Question 6. The sum of all exterior angles of a pentagon is**

(a) 590°

(b) 360°

(c) 180°

(d) none of these

**Answer:**

Sum of exterior angles of a pentagon = 360° (b)

**Question 7. If the ratio between an exterior and interior angle of a regular polygon is 1 : 5, then the number of sides of the polygon is**

(a) 11

(b) 12

(c) 13

(d) 14

**Answer:**

Ratio between exterior angle and interior angle

of a regular polygon = 1 : 5

But sum of angles = 180°

∴ Exterior angle = 180°/(1+5) × 1

= 180°/6 = 30°

∴ Number of sides = 360°/30 =12 (b)

(Sum of exterior angles = 360°)

**Question 8. In the given figure, the value of x is**

(a) 140°

(b) 50°

(c) 130°

(d) 40°

**Answer:**

In the given figure,

Sum of exterior angles of a triangle = 360°

∴ 140° + x + 90° = 360°

⇒ x + 230° = 360°

∴ x = 360° – 230° = 130° (c)

**Question 9. In the given figure, the value of x is**

(a) 120°

(b) 130°

(c) 140°

(d) 150°

**Answer:**

In the given figure,

Sum of angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

∴ 60° + (180° – 120°) + 110° + x = 360°

⇒ 60° + 60° + 110° + x = 360°

230° + x = 360°

∴ x = 360°- 230° = 130° (b)

**Question 10. In the given figure, the value of x + y + z + w is**

(a) 180°

(b) 270°

(c) 300°

(d) 360°

**Answer:**

In the given figure,

Sum of exterior angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

∴ x + y + z + w = 360° (d)

**Question 11. In the given figure, the value of x + y is**

(a) 180°

(b) 190°

(c) 170°

(d) 160°

**Answer:**

In the given figure,

Sum of interior angles of a quadrilateral = 360°

60° + y + 110° + x = 360°

⇒ x + y + 170° = 360°

⇒ x + y = 360° – 170°

x + y = 190° (b)

**Question 12. The lengths of two adjacent sides of a parallelogram are in the ratio 1 : 2. If the perimeter of parallelogram is 60 cm, then length of its sides are**

(a) 6 cm, 12 cm

(b) 8 cm, 16 cm

(c) 9 cm, 18 cm

(d) 10 cm, 20 cm

**Answer:**

Ratio in the length of two adjacent sides of a parallelogram = 1 : 2

Perimeter = 60 cm

∴ Sum of two adjacent sides = 60/2 = 30 cm

Let first side = x, then second side = 2x

∴ x + 2x = 30 ⇒ 3x = 30

x = 30/2 = 10 cm

First side = 10 cm

and second side = 10 × 2 = 20 cm (d)

**Question 13. In the given figure, ABCD is a parallelogram, the values of x and y respectively are**

(a) 1 cm, 1 cm

(b) 2 cm, 1 cm

(c) 1 cm, 2 cm

(d) 2 cm, 2 cm

**Answer:**

In the given figure, ABCD is a parallelogram

∵ Diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other

∴ AO = OC and BO = OD

∴ 6 = 5x + 1

⇒ 5x = 6 – 1 = 5

⇒ x = 5/5

and y + 3 = 4

⇒ y = 4 – 3 = 1

∴ x = 1, y = 4 (a)

**Question 14. In the given figure, ABCD is a parallelogram, the values of x, y and z respectively are**

(a) 60°, 60°, 70°

(b) 60°, 70°, 60°

(c) 70°, 60°, 60°

(d) none of these

**Answer:**

In the given figure,

ABCD is a parallelogram, BD is its one diagonal

∠ABD + ∠DBC +∠CBE = 180°

(Angles on one side of a line)

⇒ 50° + x + 70° = 180°

x + 120° = 180°

∴ x = 180° – 120° = 60°

But y = x (Alternate angles)

∴ y = 60°

z = 70° (Alternate angles)

∴ x = 60°, y = 60°, z = 70° (a)

**(ML Aggarwal Quadrilaterals Shapes MCQs Class 8 ICSE Maths)**

**Question 15. In the given figure, ABCD is a rectangle, the value of angle x is**

(a) 60°

(b) 90°

(c) 120°

(d) none of these

**Answer:**

In the given figure, ABCD is a rectangle

∴ ∠OBA = ∠OAB = 30°

In ∆AOB,

∠AOB = ∠COD (Vertically opposite angles)

∠AOB = x

∠AOB + ∠OBA + ∠OAB = 180° (Angles of a triangle)

⇒ x + 30° + 30° = 180°

⇒ x = 180°- 30°- 30° = 120°

∴ x = 120° (c)

**Question 16. In a rhombus ABCD, the diagonals AC and BD are respectively 8 cm and 6 cm. The length of each side of the rhombus is**

(a) 7 cm

(b) 5 cm

(c) 6 cm

(d) 8 cm

**Answer: Each side of rhombus = 5 cm (b)**

**Question 17. In the given figure, ABCD is a square, the value of angle x is**

(a) 30°

(b) 45°

(c) 60°

(d) not possible to find

**Answer: **∴ x = 1/2 × ∠B = 1/2× 90° = 45° (b)

**Question 18. In the given figure, ABCD is a kite, the value of angle x is**

(a) 86°

(b) 100°

(c) 104°

(d) none of these

**Answer:**

In the given figure, ABCD is a kite whose

diagonals AC and BD intersect at O at right angles.

In ∆OAB, ∠O = 90°

∴ ∠OAB + ∠ABO = 90°

⇒ ∠OAB + 36° = 90°

⇒ ∠OAB = 90° – 36° = 54°

But ∠OAD = ∠OCD = 50°

x = ∠DAO + ∠AOB

⇒ x = 50° + 54°= 104° (c)

**(ML Aggarwal Quadrilaterals Shapes MCQs Class 8 ICSE Maths)**

**Question 19. In the given figure, ABCD is an isosceles trapezium. The values of x, y and z respectively are**

(a) 110°, 110°, 70°

(b) 110°, 70°, 110°

(c) 70°, 110°, 110°

(d) none of these

**Answer:**

In isosceles trapezium ∠A = 70°

But ∠B = ∠A = 70° ⇒ z = 70°

But x + 70° = 180°

⇒ x = 180°-70°= 110°

But y = x = 110°

∴ 110°, 110°, 70° (a)

**Question 1. In the given figure, ABCDEF is a regular hexagon. Prove that quadrialterals ABDE and ACDF are parallelograms. Also prove that quadrilateral AGDH is a parallelogram.**

**Answer:**

In the given figure, ABCDEF is a regular hexagon.

AC, AE, DF, DB are joined.

To prove: ABDE, ACDF and AGDH are ||gm

Proof: In ∆BCD,

BC = CD

∴ ∠CBD = ∠CDB = 30° (∵ ∠C = 120° angle of hexagon)

But ∠B = ∠D (Angles of a regular hexagon)

∴ ∠B – ∠CBD = ∠D – ∠CDB

⇒ ∠ABD = ∠BDE = 90°

Similarly, ∠FAB = ∠AED = 90°

∴ ∠ABD + ∠BDE = 90° + 90° = 180°

But they are cointerior angle.

∴ AB || DE

∴ ABDE is a ||gm

Similarly we can prove that ACDF is a parallelogram.

∵ AC || DF and BD || AC

∴ AGDH is a parallelogram.

**Question 2. In the given figure, ABCD is a parallelogram and M, N are the mid-points of sides BC, AD respectively. Prove that EA = AB = BF.**

**Answer:**

In the given figure,

ABCD is a parallelogram M and N are

midpoints of the sides BC and AD respectively.

To prove : EA = AB = BF.

Proof: In ∆AFD,

M is the midpoint of BC and BC || AD

∴ B is mid-point of AF

∴ AB = BF …(i)

Similarly in ∆EBC,

N is the midpoint of AD and AD || BC

∴ A is the midpoint of EB

∴ EA = AB …(ii)

From (i) and (ii),

EA = AB = BF

**Question 3. Prove that the quadrilateral formed by joining the mid-points of the adjacent sides of a rectangle is a parallelogram.**

**Answer:**

Given : ABCD is a rectangle.

P, Q, R and S are the mid points of the sides

AB, BC, CD and DA respectively.

PQ, QR, RS and SP are joined.

To prove : PQRS is a parallelogram.

Construction : Join AC and BD.

Proof: In ∆ABC,

P and Q are mid points of AB and BC respectively

∴ PQ || AC and PQ = 1/2 AC …(i)

Similarly in ∆ADC

SR mid points of AD and CD respectively

∴ SR || AC and SR = 1/2 AC …(ii)

From (i) and (ii),

SR || PQ and SR = PQ

∴ PQRS is a parallelogram.
