 Figure Area Perimeter Circle – : = pi × r2 or = (pi × d2) / 4 = 2 × pi × r or = pi × d Square -: = s2 = s + s + s + s = 4 × s Rectangle -: = l × w = l + l + w + w = 2 × l + 2 × w Triangle -: = (b × h) / 2 = a + b + c Parallelogram -: = b × h = a + a + b + b = 2 × a + 2 × b Rhombus -: = b × h = b + b + b + b = 4 × b Trapezoid -: = (a + b) / 2 × h = a + b + c + d ### SSC CGL 2020 Study Material – Sample Questions

#### SSC CGL 2020 Study Material – Question 1

Q) The perimeters of two squares are 40 cm and 32 cm. Find the perimeter of a third square whose area is equal to the difference of the areas of the two squares.

(a) 4 cm

(b) 6 cm

(c) 24 cm

(d) 30 cm

Side of first square = (40/4) cm ⇒ 10 cm;

Side of second square = (32/4) cm ⇒ 8 cm.

Area of third square = [(10)2 – (8)2] cm2 ⇒ (100 – 64) cm2 ⇒ 36 cm2.

Side of the third square ⇒ 36 cm ⇒ 6 cm.

So, Required perimeter = (6 × 4) cm ⇒ 24 cm.

#### SSC CGL 2020 Study Material – Question 2

Q) A man walked 20 m to cross a rectangular field diagonally. If the length of the field is 16 m, the breadth of the field is:

(a) 4 m

(b) 16 m

(c) 12 m

(d) Can’t be determined

Answer = Option (c) – 12 m  #### SSC CGL 2020 Study Material – Question 3

Q) A copper wire is bent in the form of a square with an area of 121 cm. If the same wire is bent in the form of a circle, the radius (in cm) of the circle is (Take π = 22/7)

(a) 7 cm

(b) 10 cm

(c) 11 cm

(d) 14 cm

Answer – Option (a) – 7cm

Side of square = 121 = 11 cm

∴     Length of wire = 4 × 11 = 44 cm

∴    2πr = 44

⇒   2 × 22/7       × r = 44

⇒   r =   44 × 7/2 × 22 = 7 cm

#### SSC CGL 2020 Study Material – Question 4

Q) The width of a rectangular hall is 3/4th of its length. If the area of the hall is 300 sq.m, then the difference between its length and width is:

(a) 3 m

(b) 4 m

(c) 5 m

(d) 15 m

Answer = Option (c) – 5 m  #### SSC CGL 2020 Study Material – Question 5

Q) The lengths of two parallel sides of a trapezium are 6 cm and 8 cm. If the height of the trapezium be 4 cm, then its area is.

(a) 28 sq.cm

(b) 30 sq.cm

(c) 32 sq.cm

(d) 26 sq.cm

Answer = Option (a) – 28sq.cm

Area of trapezium = 1/2 × (Sum of parallel sides) × (Perpendicular distance)

=             1/2(6 + 8) × 4

=             1/2 × 14 × 4 = 28 sq. cm We hope the SSC CGL Study Material 2020 provided in this blog is helpful for your SSC CGL 2020 Exam Preparation.
