**Answers :**

**1) Answer: A**

**2) Answer: C**

Required ratio = 35/25 = 7/5

**3) Answer: A**

**4) Answer: B**

**5) Answer: D**

**6) Answer: D**

We know that

So, perimeters of Rhombus = 4 × 17= 68 cm

**7) Answer: C**

Curved surface area of two cones = 1 : 4

Ratio of slant height of two cones = 2 : 1

So, curved surface area of cone = πrl

**8) Answer: A**

**9) Answer: B**

Radius = 7cm

Length = 20cm

**10) Answer: C**

Given that,

Perimeter of a rhombus = 80 cm

Diagonal = 24 cm

Side of rhombus = 20cm
