### If a1, a2, a3 as well as b1, b2, b3 are in G.P. with the same common ratio, then the points (a1, b1), (a2, b2) and (a3, b3):

• A.

Are vertices of a triangle

• B.

Lie on parabola

• C.

Lie on a circle

• D.

Lie on a straight line

D. Lie on a straight line
Explanation
Given, all the three points are related to each other in a way that their common ratios are equal. On calculating the area of the shape formed by these three points, area is found to be zero which means that these three points are collinear.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### What will be the equation of the straight line passing from the point (–3, 5) and making intercept of length between the lines x + 3y +1 = 0 and x + 3y – 1 = 0?

• A.

X + 2 = 0

• B.

3x – y + 13 = 0

• C.

3x + 4y =18

• D.

4x + 3y = 12

B. 3x – y + 13 = 0
Explanation
The given lines are parallel and the distance between them is 2/√10 which the perpendicular distance between the two is given parallel lines. So the line cutting the given segment must be perpendicular to the x + 3y + 1 = 0 and pass through the point (–3, 5).
Equation of the line is 3(x + 3) – (y – 4) = 0; 3x – y + 13 = 0.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### The line y = x meets y = k at: (Given k ≤ 0)

• A.

One point

• B.

Two points

• C.

Three points

• D.

Zero points

D. Zero points

### The equation: x2y2 – 2xy2 – 3y2 – 4x2y + 8xy + 12y = 0; represents:

• A.

A pair of lines

• B.

A circle and pair of lines

• C.

Four lines

• D.

None of these

C. Four lines
• 7.

### Circles x2 + y2 + 2ax + c = 0 and circle x2 +y2 +2by + c = 0, touches each other then which of the following is correct?

• A.

1/a + 1/b = 1/c

• B.
• C.
• D.
B.
Explanation
The given equation represents two circles. If the circles touch each other, it means they have a common tangent at the point of contact. The equation of a tangent to a circle is given by the form ax + by + c = 0. Comparing the equations of the circles with the tangent equation, we can see that the coefficients of x and y are the same. Therefore, we can equate the coefficients of x and y in the two circle equations. By doing so, we get 1/a + 1/b = 1/c.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### The number of common tangents to the circle x2 + y2 – 4 = 0 and x2 + y2 – 6x – 8y – 24 = 0 is:

• A.

0

• B.

1

• C.

3

• D.

C. 3
Explanation
From the two equations C1C2 = 3√10; which is equal to the sum of the two radius of the given circle, it means that the two circles touch each other externally which means that both the circles will have one common tangent and as they are touching each other externally then there will be two more tangents which will touch these

Rate this question:

• 9.

• A.

2 < r < 8

• B.

R = 2

• C.

R < 3

• D.

R > 5

A. 2 < r < 8
• 10.

### Lines x2 – 8x + 12 = 0 and y2 – 14y + 45 = 0 form a square. What will be the center of the circle inscribed in the square?

• A.

(4, 3)

• B.

(3, 4)

• C.

(4, 7)

• D.

(7, 4)

C. (4, 7)
