Your answers are highlighted below.
Question 1
If the medians of two equilateral triangles are in the ratio 1:2 then what is the ratio of their sides?
A
1: 2
B
2: 3
C
3: 2
D
√3: √2
Question 1 Explanation: 
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}Median\text{ }of\text{ }an\text{ }equilateral\text{ }triangle=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}a\\By\text{ }given\text{ }condition\\\frac{\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}{{a}_{1}}}{\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}{{a}_{2}}}=\frac{1}{2}\\\therefore \,\,\frac{{{a}_{1}}}{{{a}_{2}}}=\frac{1}{2}\end{array}$
Question 2
The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 3√10 unit. If the smaller side is tripled and the longer side is doubled, new hypotenuse becomes 9√5 unit. What are the lengths of the smaller and longer sides of the right triangle respectively?
A
5 unit and 9 units
B
5 units and 6 units
C
3 units and 9 units
D
3 units and 6 units
Question 2 Explanation: 
Let the sides be x , y where x<y
x2 + y2 =(3√10)2 = 90
9x2 + 4y2 =(9√5)2 = 405
Solving the two equations
x = 3 and y=9
Question 3
In the figure given above, PQ = QS and QR = RS. If ∠SRQ = 100°, how many degrees is ∠QPS? cat-geometry-and-mensuration-10-png-1
A
40°
B
30°
C
20°
D
15°

Question 4
ABC is a right angled triangle, right angled at C and p is the length of the perpendicular from C on AB. If a, b and c are the lengths of the sides BC, AC and AB respectively, then which one of the following is correct?
A
(a2 + b2)p2 = a2b2
B
a2 + b2 = a2b2p2
C
p2= a2 + b2
D
p2= a2 –b2
Question 4 Explanation: 
45
$ \begin{array}{l}\frac{1}{2}pc=\frac{1}{2}ab\,\,\left( Since\text{ }area\text{ }of\text{ }same\text{ }triangles \right)\\{{p}^{2}}{{c}^{2}}={{a}^{2}}{{b}^{2}}\\=>{{p}^{2}}({{a}^{2}}+{{b}^{2}})={{a}^{2}}{{b}^{2}}\end{array}$
Question 5
AB, EF and CD are parallel lines. Given that, EF= 5 cm GC = 10 cm, AB = 15 cm and DC = 18 cm. What is the value of AC?
46
A
20 cm
B
24 cm
C
25 cm
D
28 cm
Question 5 Explanation: 
47
$ \begin{array}{l}\because AB||EF||CD\\\frac{EF}{CD}=\frac{EG}{GC}\\=>\frac{EF}{18}=\frac{5}{10}\\=>EF=9\\In\vartriangle ABC\text{ }and\vartriangle EFC\text{ }\left( similar\text{ }triangles \right),\\\frac{EF}{AB}=\frac{EC}{AC}\\=>9/15=15/AC\\AC=(15\times 15)/9=25cm\end{array}$
