1.

Which figure can be formed by a set of points in a plane that are at the same distance from a point?

a. | rectangle | ||

b. | circle | ||

c. | square | ||

d. | None of the above |

A circle is a set of points in a plane that are at the same distance from a given point, the center.

Correct answer : (2)

2.

William is at the center of a circular pond of diameter 124 yd. What is the least distance William has to swim to come out of the pond?

a. | 62 yd | ||

b. | 61 yd | ||

c. | 63 yd | ||

d. | None of the above |

Radius =

Radius =

[Substitute diameter = 124.]

The least distance that William has to swim to come out of the pond is 62 yd.

Correct answer : (1)

3.

The diameter of a circle is_____.

a. | The line segment joining two points on the circle and passing through its center. | ||

b. | The line segment joining center and any point on the circle. | ||

c. | The line segment joining any two points on the circle. | ||

d. | None of the above |

The line segment joining center and any point on the circle is radius.

The diameter of the circle is the line segment joining two points on the circle and passing through its center.

Correct answer : (1)

4.

If the radius of a circle is doubled, then what happens to its diameter?

a. | Halved | ||

b. | Doubled | ||

c. | No change | ||

d. | None of the above |

The diameter of the circle

As the radius is doubled, the new radius = 2

The diameter of the circle = 2 × 2

[Substitute new radius.]

So, if the radius of the circle is doubled, the diameter also gets doubled.

Correct answer : (2)

5.

Identify the circle that has AB as its diameter.

a. | Figure 2 | ||

b. | Figure 3 | ||

c. | Figure 1 | ||

d. | Figure 4 |

In Figure 3,

Therefore, the circle in Figure 3 has

Correct answer : (2)

6.

Count the number of radii shown in the circle.

a. | 12 | ||

b. | 6 | ||

c. | 8 | ||

d. | 4 |

Therefore, there are 8 radii in the circle.

Correct answer : (3)

7.

Identify the chord of the circle.

a. | $\stackrel{\u203e}{\mathrm{DB}}$ | ||

b. | $\stackrel{\u203e}{\mathrm{OE}}$ | ||

c. | $\stackrel{\u203e}{\mathrm{OD}}$ | ||

d. | $\stackrel{\u203e}{\mathrm{AC}}$ |

[Defnition.]

In the figure

Correct answer : (4)

8.

The Ferris wheel has a diameter of 206 ft. What is its radius?

a. | 98 ft | ||

b. | 108 ft | ||

c. | 103 ft | ||

d. | 93 ft |

Diameter of the wheel is 206 ft

206 = 2 × radius

Radius of the wheel =

[Divide each side by 2.]

Correct answer : (3)

9.

A set of points on a plane which are at the same distance from a fixed point will form a __________

a. | Quarilateral | ||

b. | Triangle | ||

c. | Circle | ||

d. | Line |

Correct answer : (3)

10.

If O is the center of the circle, then what is the radius of the circle?

a. | AC | ||

b. | AB | ||

c. | DC | ||

d. | OA |

In the figure, OA, OB, OC, and OD are the radii of the circle.

Correct answer : (4)
