1.

Choose the correct statement(s).

(i) diameter of a circle = 2 × radius

(ii) diameter of a circle = $\frac{1}{2}$× radius

(iii) radius of a circle = 2 × diameter

(iv) radius of a circle = $\frac{1}{2}$× diameter

(i) diameter of a circle = 2 × radius

(ii) diameter of a circle = $\frac{1}{2}$× radius

(iii) radius of a circle = 2 × diameter

(iv) radius of a circle = $\frac{1}{2}$× diameter

a. | (iii) and (iv) only | ||

b. | (i) and (ii) only | ||

c. | (i) and (iv) only | ||

d. | (ii) and (iii) only |

The distance from the center of a circle to any point on the circle is called the radius.

Therefore from the definitions of diameter and radius, we can say that diameter is twice the radius. This also implies that radius is half of the diameter.

From the given choices, (i) and (iv) only is the correct answer.

Correct answer : (3)

2.

Find the diameter of the circle whose radius is 5 cm.

a. | 9 cm | ||

b. | 12 cm | ||

c. | 10 cm | ||

d. | 11 cm |

= 2 × 5 cm.

[Substitute radius = 5.]

= 10 cm

[Multiply]

So, the diameter of the circle is 10 cm.

Correct answer : (3)

3.

Which of the given statements is true?

a. | diameter = $\frac{2}{\mathrm{radius}}$ | ||

b. | diameter = 2 - radius | ||

c. | diameter = $\frac{1}{2}$ × radius | ||

d. | diameter = 2 × radius |

Diameter = radius + radius = 2 × radius.

Correct answer : (4)

4.

Find the radius of the circle whose diameter is 22 cm.

a. | 44 cm | ||

b. | 10 cm | ||

c. | 11 cm | ||

d. | 22 cm |

[Divide each side by 2.]

[Substitute diameter = 22.]

[Divide.]

Correct answer : (3)

5.

How many circles are there?

a. | 1 | ||

b. | 3 | ||

c. | 5 | ||

d. | 2 |

Among the figures, (c) and (e) are circles.

There are 2 circles in the figures.

Correct answer : (4)

6.

O is the center of the circle. Which line segment is not the radius of the circle?

a. | OD | ||

b. | AB | ||

c. | OE | ||

d. | OA |

A and B are two points on the circle. So, line joining A and B cannot be the radius of the circle.

Correct answer : (2)

7.

Find the diameter of a circle, if its radius is 3 cm .

a. | 1.5 cm | ||

b. | 5 cm | ||

c. | 9 cm | ||

d. | 6 cm |

[Formula.]

= 2 × 3

[Substitute 3 for radius.]

= 6

[Multiply.]

The diameter of the circle is 6 cm.

Correct answer : (4)

8.

If O is the center of the circle, then find the radius of the circle.

a. | 5 cm | ||

b. | 20 cm | ||

c. | 10 cm | ||

d. | 15 cm |

Diameter = 2 × radius

[Formula.]

[Divide each side by 2.]

[Substitute 10 for diameter.]

5 = radius

[Divide.]

The radius of the circle is 5 cm.

Correct answer : (1)

9.

The diameter of a circular bed is 12 feet . What is its radius?

a. | 6 feet | ||

b. | 5 feet | ||

c. | 24 feet | ||

d. | 10 feet |

[Formula.]

[Divide each side by 2.]

[Substitute 12 for diameter.]

6 = radius

[Divide.]

So, the radius of the circular bed is 6 feet.

Correct answer : (1)

10.

A circular swimming pool is constructed with a radius of 14 feet . What is its diameter?

a. | 27 feet | ||

b. | 29 feet | ||

c. | 14 feet | ||

d. | 28 feet |

[Formula.]

= 2 × 14

[Substitute 14 for radius.]

= 28

[Multiply.]

So, the diameter of the swimming pool is 28 feet.

Correct answer : (4)
