**Class 9 Maths MCQs on Chapter 10-Circle with Solutions**

**Q1.The radius of a circle is 25 cm and the length of one of its chords is 14 cm. The distance of the chord from the centre is**

**(a) 12.5 cm (b) 13 cm (c) 7 cm (d) 24 cm**

Ans. The given radius of the circle is 25 cm and chord 14 cm

The distance of the chord from the centre is perpendicular to the chord from the centre which bisects the chord

Therefore

The distance of the chord from the centre =√(25² -7²) = √(625 -49)= √576= 24 cm

**Q2.A chord is at a distance of 12 cm from the centre of a circle of radius 13 cm. The length of the chord is**

**(a) 12 cm (b) 13 cm (c) 10 cm (d) 26 cm**

Ans.The given radius of the circle is 13 cm and the distance of chord from the centre of the circle is 12 cm

The distance of the chord from the centre bisects the chord

Therefore

Length of chord/2 =√(13² -12²) = √(169 -144)= √25= 5 cm

Length of chord = 2×5 = 10 cm

**Q3.In the given figure, POQ is a diameter of a circle and PR = QR. Then, ∠QPR=**

**(a) 60° (b) 50° (c) 40° (d) 45° **

Ans.POQ is the given diameter

∠QRP = 90° (angle made on the semi-circle)

Since we are given

PR = QR

Therefore

∠PQR = ∠QPR (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

∠QRP + ∠PQR +∠QPR =180°(angle sum property of Δ)

∠QPR + ∠PQR +∠QPR =180°

2∠QPR + 90° = 180°

2∠QPR = 90°

∠QPR = 45°

**Q4.In the given figure, O is the centre of a circle. If ∠OPQ = 30° and R is a point on the circle, then ∠QRP =**

**(a) 60° (b) 50° (c) 30° (d) 55°**

Ans. The given ∠OPQ = 30° in ΔPOQ

OP = OQ (radii of the circle)

∴∠OPQ =∠OQP= 30° (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

∠OPQ + ∠OQP +∠POQ =180°(angle sum property of Δ)

∠OPQ + ∠OPQ +∠POQ = 180°

2 ∠OPQ +∠POQ = 180°

2 ×30° +∠POQ= 180°

∠POQ = 180°- 60°= 120°

∠PRQ = ∠POQ/2 =120°/2 = 60°

**Q5.An equilateral triangle of side 9 cm is inscribed a circle. The radius of the circle is**

**(a) 4.5 cm (b) 5 cm (c) 9 cm (d) 3√3 cm**

Ans. The side of the given equilateral triangle is 9 cm

Let the centre of the circle is O and the equilateral triangle is ΔABC,O will also be the centre of the equilateral triangle.

Drawing OD ⊥BC

OD bisects BC (The perpendicular from the centre to chord bisects the chord)

Joining O to A,therefore AD will also bisects BC

ΔABD is a right triangle in which AB = 9 cm,BD =9/2 =4.5 cm

∴ AD =√(AB² -BD²) = √(9² -(9/2)²)=√(81 -81/4) =√[(324-81)/4] =√[243/4] =9√3/2 cm

OA = (2/3)AD (centre of the triangle divides its median into the 2 : 1)

OA = (2/3)× 9√3/2 = 9/√3 = 9√3/3 = 3√3 cm

**Q6.In figure, O is the centre of a circle and ∠AOB = 130°, then ∠ACB =**

**(a) 130° (b) 140° (c) 145° (d) 115°**

Ans. In fig. it is given that ∠AOB = 130°

Ext.∠AOB = 360° – 130° = 230°

The ext.∠AOB and ∠ACB are the angles made by the same arc ACB

∴∠ACB = Ext.∠AOB/2 = 230°/2 = 115°

**Q7.In figure, sides AB and AD of a quadrilateral ABCD are produced to E and F respectively. If ∠CBE = 100°, then find ∠CDF.**

**(a) 100° (b) 80° (c) 90° (d) 95°**

Ans.From the figure

∠CBE = 100°

∠CBA=180°-∠CBE(linear pair)

∠CBA=180°-100°= 80°

∠CBA + ∠ADC = 180°(opposite angles of cyclic quadrilateral)

80° +∠ADC= 180°

∠ADC = 180°- 80° = 100°

∠CDF = 180°-∠ADC(linear pair)

∠CDF = 180°-100°= 80°

**Q8.In the given figure, ABCD is the cyclic quadrilateral in which BC = CD and ∠CBD = 35°. Then, ∠BAD =**

**(a) 100° (b) 80° (c) 90° (d) 95°**

**Ans.**We are given that ∠CBD = 35° and BC = CD

∠CBD = ∠CDB (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

2∠CBD +∠BCD =180°(angle sum property of the Δ)

2×30°+∠BCD =180°

∠BCD = 180° – 60°= 120°

∠BCD + ∠BAD = 180°(opposite angles of cyclic quadrilateral)

∠BAD = 180°-∠BCD = 180°-120°= 60°

**Q9.If the circumference of a circle is twice of its area then find its radius.**

**(a) 2 units (b) 1 unit (c) 3 units (d) 4 units **

Ans. (b) 1 unit

Let the radius of the circle is r

Circumference of the circle is =2πr

Area of the circle is = πr²

As per the question

2πr = 2(πr²)

r = 1

**Q10.The longest chord of the circle is**

**(a) Radius (b) Diameter (c) Arc (d) Segment**

Ans.(b) Diameter

**Q11. Two chords AB = 8 cm and BC =8 cm are drawn on a circle,if ∠AOB =60° then find ∠BOC .**

**(a) 120° (b) 60° (c) 40° (d) 30°**

Ans.(b) 60°

Two chords given on a circle are AB = BC= 8 cm

Since we are given ∠AOB = 60°

∠AOB = ∠BOC =60°(equal chords subtends equal angles in a circle)

**Q12. In two congruent circles of centres O , P ,if two equal chords AB and QR are drawn on them respectively such that ∠AOB =40° then**

**(a) ∠OAB=60° (b) ∠QPR=70° (c) ∠PQR=70° (d)∠OBA= 40°**

Ans. In ΔAOB and ΔPQR

AO = PQ(radii of congruent triangles)

OB = PR(radii of congruent triangles)

AB = QR( given)

ΔAOB ≅ ΔQPR (SSS rule)

∠OAB = ∠PQR

In ΔAOB

∠AOB= 40° (given)

∠OAB = ∠OBA (since OA = OB)

∠OAB +∠OBA +∠AOB = 180°

2∠OAB = 180° – ∠AOB = 180° – 40° = 140°

∠OAB = 140°/2 = 70°

**∠PQR=∠OAB =70°**

**Q13. PQ is the diameter of a circle and PR is the chord,if PQ = 26 cm and PR =24 cm then the distance of the chord PR from the centre is**

**(a) 2 cm (b) 5 cm (c) 3 cm (d) 4 cm**

Ans.(b) 5 cm

It is given that PQ = 26 cm and PR =24 cm

Drawing the distance of the chord PR from the centre is **OM** ⊥PR

Since the distance OM ⊥ PR

∴ PM = PR/2 = 24/2 = 12 cm (perpendicular drawn from the centre to chord bisects the chord)

OP = diameter/2 =26/2 = 13 cm

ΔPOM is a right triangle

OM = √(PO² – PM²) = √(13² – 12²) =√(169 -144) =√25 = 5 cm

Therefore distance of the chord PR from the centre is 5 cm

**Q14.In the given figure, AB is a chord of a circle with centre O and AB is produced to C such that BC = OB. Also, CO is joined and produced to meet the circle in D. If ∠ACD = 25°, then ∠AOD =**

**(a) 40° (b) 50° (c) 60° (d) 75°**

Ans. (d) 75°

Since it is given to us

BC = OB.

∠BOC = ∠BCO =25° (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

∠OBC = 180° – (25° +25°) = 180° -50° = 130°(angle sum property of the triangle)

∠ABO = 180° -130°= 50°(linear pair)

Since OA =OB (radii of the circle)

∴∠OAB = ∠ABO =50°(opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

∠AOD = ∠OAC +∠ACD (exterior angle property of the triangle)

∠AOD = 50°+25°= 75°

**Q15.In the given figure, PQ is a chord of a circle with centre O and QOR is a diameter. If OS ⊥ PQ such that OS = 6 cm, then PR =**

**(a) 5 cm (b) 6 cm (c) 8 cm (d) 12 cm**

Ans. (d) 12 cm

In ΔPQR and ΔSQO

∠QPR = 90° (angle made on semicircle since QOR is a diameter)

OS ⊥ PQ(given)

∴QSO = 90°

Considering ΔPQR and ΔSQO

∠Q = ∠Q

∠QPR = ∠QSO = 90°

ΔPQR ∼ SQO (AA rule)

OS/PR = OQ/QR

Since OQ is radius and QR is the diameter,therefore QR =2OQ

OS = 6 cm (given)

6/PR = OQ/2OQ =1/2

PR = 6 ×2 = 12 cm

**Q16.In the given figure, O is the centre of a circle. If ∠AOB = =100° and ∠AOC = 90°, then ∠BAC =**

**(a) 85° (b) 95° (c) 75° (d) 85° **

Ans.(d) 85°

We are given that

∠AOB = =100° and ∠AOC = 90°

Considering ΔAOC and ΔAOB

OA = OB and OA = OC (radii of circle)

∠ABO = ∠BAO and ∠CAO =∠ACO (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

Applying angle sum property of the triangle

2∠BAO +100°= 180° and 2∠CAO+90°= 180°

∠BAO = 40° and ∠CAO = 45°

∠BAC = ∠BAO + ∠CAO =40° +45° = 85°

**Q17.In the given figure, O is the centre of a circle and ∠AOC = 120°. Then, ∠BDC =**

**(a) 30° (b) 60° (c) 15° (d) 40° **

Ans.(a) 30°

The given angle is

∠AOC = 120°

∠BOC = 180°-∠AOC (linear pair)

∠BOC = 180°-120° = 60°

∠BDC = ∠BOC /2 (angle subtended at the circle is half of the angle subtended at the centre by the same arc BC)

∠BDC = 60° /2 = 30°

**Q18.In the given figure, O is the centre of a circle in which ∠OAB = 20° and ∠OCB = 50°. Then, ∠AOC =**

**(a) 30° (b) 60° (c) 15° (d) 40° **

Ans.(b) 60°

The given angles are

∠OAB = 20° and ∠OCB = 50°

In ΔAOB

OA = OB (radii of the same circle)

∠OAB = ∠OBA = 20° (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

In ΔBOC

OC = OB (radii of the same circle)

∠OCB = ∠OBC = 50° (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

∠ABC = ∠OBC -∠OBA = 50° – 20° = 30°

∠AOC = 2∠ABC (angle subtended at the circle is half of the angle subtended at the centre by the same arc AC)

**∠AOC = 2×30° = 60°**

**Q19.In the given figure, POQ is a diameter of a circle and PS = QS. Then, ∠QPS =**

**(a) 40° (b) 60° (c) 45° (d) 50° **

Ans.(c) 45°

We are given that POQ is a diameter of a circle and PS = QS

In ΔPQS

∠QSP = 90°(angle made on the semicircle)

∠QPS = ∠PQS (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

2∠QPS + ∠QSP = 180°

2∠QPS + 90° = 180°

2∠QPS = 90°

∠QPS = 45°

**Q20.In the given figure, O is the centre of a circle. If ∠OAB = 40° and C is a point on the circle, then ∠ACB =**

**(a) 40° (b) 60° (c) 45° (d) 50° **

Ans.(d) 50°

In ΔAOB the given angle is

∠BAO = 40°

AO = BO (radii of the circle)

∠BAO =∠ABO=40° (opposite angles of equal sides in a Δ)

∠BAO +∠ABO+∠AOB=180°

2×40°+∠AOB=180°

∠AOB = 180° – 80° = 100°

∠ACB = ∠AOB/2(angle subtended at the circle is half of the angle subtended at the centre by the same arc AB)

∠ACB = 100°/2 = 50°
