Geometry Questions and Answers Part-1

1. \[k_{1},k_{2},k_{3}\]   are parallel lines. AD = 2 cm, BE = 8 cm and CF = 32 cm
I. (AB) × (EF)
II. (BC) × (DE)
a) I > II
b) I < II
c) I = II
d) Nothing can be said

Answer: c

2. Which one of the following cannot be the ratio of angles in a right angled triangle?
a) 1 : 2 : 3
b) 1 : 1 : 2
c) 1 : 3 : 6
d) None of these

Answer: c
Explanation: Clearly option (a) shows the angles would be 30, 60 and 90. It can be the ratio of angle in a right angled triangle.
Option (b) shows the angles would be 45, 45 and 90, then it can be the ratio of angle in a right angled triangle.
But option (c) cannot form the ratio of angles of right angled triangle.
