Question 8
In the following diagram, the point R is the center of the circle. The lines PQ and ZV are tangential to the circle. The relation among the areas of the squares, PXWR, RUVZ and SPQT is

A
Area of SPQT = Area of RUVZ = Area of PXWR
B
Area of SPQT = Area of PXWR - Area of RUVZ
C
Area of PXWR = Area of SPQT - Area of RUVZ
D
Area of PXWR = Area of RUVZ - Area of SPQT

Question 8 Explanation: 
From \Delta PQR by Pythagoras theorem,
PR^2=PQ^2+QR^2
Also, QR = RZ,
\Rightarrow PR^2=PQ^2+RZ^2
\Rightarrow Area of PXWR = Area of SPQT + Area of RUVZ
\Rightarrow Area of SPQT = Area of PXWR - Area of RUVZ
Question 9

Question 10 Explanation: 
Given,
\frac{P}{Q}=\frac{1}{2}, \frac{Q}{R}=\frac{4}{3},\frac{R}{S}=\frac{4}{5}
\frac{P}{Q}=\frac{1 \times 8}{2 \times 8}, \frac{Q}{R}=\frac{4\times 4}{3\times 4},\frac{R}{S}=\frac{4 \times 3}{5 \times 3}
\begin{aligned} P&:&Q&:&R&:&S\\ 8&:&16&:&12&:&15 \end{aligned}
U=15 \times 1.5=22.5
\frac{P}{U}=\frac{ 8}{22.5}= \frac{16}{45}
