Circle Multiple Choice Question 1. The area of the circle is 154 cm2. The radius of the circle is

(a) 7 cm

(b) 14 cm

(c) 3.5 cm

d) 17.5 cm

**Answer/ Explanation**

Areas Related To Circles Class 10 MCQ With Answer: dExplaination: Reason: Area of circle = 154 cm²

⇒ nr² = 154 cm2

⇒ \(\frac{22}{7}\) × r² = 154

⇒ r² = 154 × \(\frac{22}{7}\)

⇒ r² = 7 × 7 = 49

∴ r = √49 = 7

2. If angle of sector is 60°, radius is 3.5 cm then length of the arc is

(a) 3 cm

(b) 3.5 cm

(c) 3.66 cm

(d) 3.8 cm

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: c

Explaination: Reason: Here r = 3.5 cm = \(\frac{35}{10}\) = \(\frac{7}{2}\) cm θ = 60°

Length of arc = \(\frac{θ}{360}\) × 2πr = \(\frac{60}{360}\) × 2 × \(\frac{22}{7}\) = × \(\frac{7}{2}\) × \(\frac{1}{6}\) × 22 = \(\frac{11}{6\3}\) = 3.66 cm

Areas Related To Circles MCQs Question 3. The area of a quadrant of a circle whose circumference is 22 cm, is

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: d

Explaination: Reason: Here 2πr = 22 cm

2 × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × r = 22

⇒ r = 22 × \(\frac{7}{22}\) × \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{7}{2}\) cm

∴ Area of quadrant of circle = \(\frac{1}{4}\)πr² = \(\frac{1}{4}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × \(\frac{7}{2}\) × \(\frac{7}{2}\) = \(\frac{77}{8}\) cm²

(b) 37.68 cm²

(c) 18.84 cm²

(d) 19.84 cm²

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: a

Explaination: Reason: Here diameter = 21 cm

∴ Radius r = \(\frac{21}{2}\) cm

Area of the circle, A = πr²

∴ \(A=\frac{22}{7} \times \frac{21}{2} \times \frac{21}{2}=11 \times 3 \times \frac{21}{2}=\frac{693}{2}=346.5 \mathrm{cm}^{2}\)

7. The area of the sector of a circle with radius 6 cm and of angle 60° is

(a) 9.42 cm²

(b) 37.68 cm²

(c) 18.84 cm²

(d) 19.84 cm²

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: c

Explaination: Reason: Here r = 6 cm, θ = 60°

Area of the sector = \(\frac{θ}{360}\)

∴ Area = \(\frac{60}{360}\) × 3.14 × 6 × 6 = \(\frac{1}{6}\) × 3.14 × 6 × 6 = 3.14 × 6 = 18.84 cm²

8. The area of a circle whose circumference is 22 cm, is

(a) 11 cm²

(b) 38.5 cm²

(c) 22 cm²

(d) 77 cm²

9. The area of a circle is 154 cm2. Its diameter is

(a) 7 cm

(b) 14 cm

(c) 21 cm

(d) 28 cm

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: b

Explaination: Reason: Here area of the circle, A = 154 cm², Radius, r = ?

Area of the circle = 154 cm² …(Given)

∴ πr² = 154

⇒ \(\frac{22}{7}\) × r² = 154

⇒ r² = 154 × latex]\frac{7}{22}[/latex] = 7 × 7

⇒ r = 7 cm

∴ Diameter of the circle = 2 × r = 2 × 7 = 14 cm

10. The length of the minute hand of a clock is 14 cm. The area swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes is

(a) 153.9 cm²

(b) 102.6 cm²

(c) 51.3 cm²

(d) 205.2 cm²

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: c

Explaination: Reason: Angle swept by the minute hand in 1 minute = (360° ÷ 60) = 6°

∴ θ = 30°

∴ Angle swept by the minute hand in 5 minutes = 6° × 5 = 30°

Length of minute hand (r) = 14 cm

∴ Area swept = \(\frac{θ}{360}\)πr² = \(\frac{30}{360}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × 14 × 14 = \(\frac{154}{3}\) = 51.3 cm²

MCQ Questions For Class 10 Maths Areas Related To Circles Question 11. The radii of two circles are 19 cm and 9 cm respectively. The radius of the circle which has circumference equal to the sum of the circumference of two circles is

(a) 35 cm

(b) 10 cm

(c) 21 cm

(d) 28 cm

**Answer/ Explanation**

Answer: d

Explaination: Reason: Let the radii of two circles be r_{1} and r_{2} and the radius of large circle be r.

∴ r_{1} = 19 cm, r_{2} = 9 cm

Circumference of two circles = C_{1}+ C_{2} …(where C = circle)

= 2πr_{1} + 2πr_{2} = 2π × 19 + 2π × 9 = 38π + 18π = 56π

∴ Circumference of large circle = 56π

⇒ 2πr = 56π

⇒ r = 28
