- A.
55°

- B.
33°

- C.
45°

- D.

Two lines intersect each other and make four angles. Of these, any two adjacent angles are

- A.
Equal

- B.
Complementary

- C.
Supplementary

- D.
None of these

Answer: Option C

**Explanation** :

When two lines intersect each other, any two adjacent angles (of the four angles) make a linear pair and are always supplementary to each other.

Here, ∠1 and ∠2 are adjacent angles. Since they form a linear pair of angles, they are supplementary.

Hence, option (c).

It is given that, m ∠A + m ∠B + m ∠C = 210° and m ∠B is thrice that of m∠C. If ∠B and ∠C are supplementary, the measures of ∠A, ∠B and ∠C respectively are

- A.
30°, 135°, 45°

- B.
30°, 120°, 60°

- C.
45°, 110°, 55°

- D.
30°, 108°, 36°

Answer: Option A

**Explanation** :

m ∠B + m ∠C = 180° (Supplementary angles) … (1) and

m ∠A + m ∠B + m ∠C = 210° …(2)

Solving (1) and (2), we get

∴ m ∠A = 210° − 180° = 30°

Now, m ∠B = 3 × (m ∠C) …(3)

Solving (1) and (3), we get

∴ m ∠B = 135° and m ∠C = 45°

Hence, option (a).

Measure of the supplementary angle of ∠A is 100° more than that of the complementary angle. What is the type of ∠A?

- A.
Acute angle

- B.
Reflex angle

- C.
Obtuse angle

- D.
Not possible

Answer: Option D

**Explanation** :

Let m∠A be x.

Measure of the supplementary angle of ∠A = (180° – x)

Measure of the complementary angle of ∠A = (90° – x)

According to the question,

Measure of the supplementary angle of ∠A = Measure of the complementary angle of ∠A + 100°

∴ (180° – x) = (90° – x) + 100°

∴ 180° – x = 190° − x

⇒ 180° = 190°

This is not possible.

Hence, option (d).

(Note: A complementary angle pair can be formed only by acute angles)

m∠P is 30° more than the measure of its supplementary angle. Which of the following is the measure of ∠P?

- A.
85°

- B.
105°

- C.
125°

- D.
None of these

Answer: Option B

**Explanation** :

Let m ∠P be x°.

∴ Measure of the supplementary angle of ∠P = x − 30°

The sum of these two angles should be 180°.

∴ x + (x − 30°) = 180°

∴ x = 105°

Hence, option (b).

In the given figure, the lines L_{1} and L_{2} are parallel to each other and the line segments PQ and PR are perpendicular to each other. Moreover, m ∠PQR = 55° and lines ST, PQ, and PR intersect at point P. Find m ∠TPR.

- A.
50°

- B.
45°

- C.
35°

- D.
55°

Answer: Option C

**Explanation** :

L_{1} and L_{2} are parallel to each other.

Line PQ is the transversal.

∴ m ∠PQR + m ∠TPQ = 180° ...(∵ ∠PQR and ∠TPQ are interior opposite angles)

⇒ m ∠TPQ = 180° - 55° = 125°

Given, m ∠QPR = 90°

∴ m ∠TPQ = 125° = m ∠QPR + m ∠TPR

⇒ m ∠TPR = 125° - 90° = 35°

Hence, option (c).

A line L_{1} cuts three parallel line segments AB, CD, and EF at points P, Q, and R respectively and another line L_{2} cuts them (AB, CD, and EF) at points S, T, and U respectively. If 3 × PQ = 2 × QR and the length of the segment ST is 4 cm, then what is the length of the segment TU?

- A.
6 cm

- B.
2 cm

- C.
4 cm

- D.
8 cm

Answer: Option A

**Explanation** :

Transversals make intercepts of equal proportions on parallel lines.

Using the Equal Intercept Ratio theorem, we have,

$\frac{\mathrm{PQ}}{\mathrm{QR}}$ = $\frac{\mathrm{ST}}{\mathrm{TU}}$

∴ $\frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{4}{\mathrm{TU}}$

∴ TU = 6 cm

Hence, option (a).

As shown in the figure, line AC and line FG are parallel to each other and m ∠ABF = 55°. If ray BD and segment EF are parallel and m ∠DBF = 30°, then find m ∠EFG.

- A.
25°

- B.
35°

- C.
45°

- D.
40°

Answer: Option A

**Explanation** :

Ray BD and EF are parallel lines and line BF is the transversal.

∴ m ∠DBF = m ∠EFB = 30° (∠DBF and ∠EFB form a pair of Alternate angles)

m ∠ABF = m ∠BFG = 55°, as they form a pair of alternate angles across lines AC and FG with BF as the transversal.

Now, m ∠BFG = m ∠BFE + m ∠EFG

∴ m ∠EFG = 55° − 30° = 25°

Hence, option (a).

In the given figure, lines *l* and *m* are parallel to each other. Transversals AI and BK are also parallel to each other. If m ∠HJI = 50° and m ∠JHI = 45°, then find m ∠CBD.

- A.
105°

- B.
125°

- C.
85°

- D.
120°

Answer: Option C

**Explanation** :

In ∆HJI, m ∠HJI = 50° and m ∠JHI = 45°

Also, m ∠HJI + m ∠JHI + m ∠JIH = 180°

⇒ m ∠JIH = 85° i.e. m ∠JKD = 85° (∠JIH and ∠JKD are corresponding angles)

Now, if we consider lines l and m, BK is the common transversal

∴ ∠JKD = ∠CBD = 85° (alternate interior angles)

Hence, option (c).

In the figure, DE and AE bisect ∠ADC and ∠DAB respectively. AB is parallel to CD. Find m ∠AED.

- A.
60°

- B.
75°

- C.
80°

- D.
90°

- E.
100°

Answer: Option D

**Explanation** :

Let m ∠DAB = 2x and m ∠ADC = 2y

∴ m ∠EAB = m ∠EAD = x and m ∠ADE = m ∠EDC = y

∵ AB and CD are parallel, ∠DAB and ∠ADC are interior angles whose sum is 180°.

∴ 2x + 2y = 180°

∴ x + y = 90°

∴ m ∠AED = 180° − (m ∠EAD + m ∠ADE)

= 180° − (x + y)

= 180° − 90°

= 90°

Hence, option (d).

The lines AB, CD, EF and GH are parallel. It is known that AE : CG = 3 : 5 and AC : AG = 1 : 4. If the length of BD is 10 cm, what is the length (in cm) of FH?

- A.
15

- B.
18

- C.
22

- D.
12

Answer: Option C

**Explanation** :

AC : AG = BD : BH = 1 : 4

But, BD = 10 cm

∴ BH = 40 cm

∴ DH = BH − BD = 40 − 10 = 30 cm

Now, AE : CG = BF : DH = 3 : 5

∴ BF/30 = 3/5

∴ BF = 18 cm

∴ FH = BH − BF = 40 − 18 = 22 cm

Hence, option (c).

130°

- B.
135°

- C.
140°

- D.
145°

- E.
150°

Answer: Option B

**Explanation** :

∠BFE and ∠AEJ are corresponding angles.

∴ m ∠BFE = m ∠AEJ = 55°

∠CBF and ∠BFE are alternate angles.

∴ m ∠CBF = m ∠BFE = 55°

∵ BI is the bisector of ∠CBF, we have,

∴ m ∠IBC = (m ∠CBF)/2 = 27.5°

∴ m ∠ICB = 180° − (m ∠BIC + m ∠IBC)

= 180° − (130° + 27.5°)= 22.5°

m ∠BCG = 2 × m ∠ICB = 45°

∴ m ∠CGF = 180° − m ∠BCG = 135°

m ∠DHG = m ∠CGF = 135° (∵ m∠DHG and m∠CGF form a pair of Corresponding angles)

Hence, option (b).

- B.
115°

- C.
130°

- D.
135°

- E.

Answer: Option D

**Explanation** :

Construct a line EF parallel to both AB and CD.

∴ m ∠CEF = m ∠ECD = 20° (∵ ∠CEF and ∠ECD form a pair of Alternate angles)

Also, m ∠AEG = m ∠EAB = 45° (∵ ∠AEG and ∠EAB form a pair of Alternate angles)

∴ m ∠GED = 70° − 45° = 25°

But, m ∠GED + m ∠CED + m ∠CEF = 180°

∴ 25° + m ∠CED + 20° = 180°

∴ m ∠CED = 135°

Hence, option (d).

Answer: Option D

**Explanation** :

Draw a line OP parallel to LK.

∵ LK and MN are parallel lines, line OP is parallel to both the lines..

∴ m ∠LKO = m ∠KOP = 65° (∵ ∠LKO and ∠KOP form a pair of Alternate angles)

But, m ∠KON = m ∠KOP + m ∠PON
