**Find below the important questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Board Exam 2021:**

**Important 1 Mark Questions**

Here we provide important questions which should be prepared for the 1 mark questions set to be asked in class 10 Mathematics exam.

- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics exam 2020, Section-A will contain 20 questions of 1 mark each. These one mark questions can be asked in different formats like, mcqs, fill in the blanks, on word answer type questions, etc.

**Some sample questions from the set of Important 1 Mark Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:**

**Q.** Find the length of the tangent from a point M which is at a distance of 17 cm from the centre O of the circle of radius 8 cm.

**Sol.**

Consider the figure:

Since, MN is the tangent of the circle,

∠MNO = 90⁰

⟹ MO^{2} = MN^{2} + ON^{2}

⟹ 17^{2} = MN^{2} + 8^{2}

⟹ 289 = MN^{2} + 64

⟹ 289 – 64 = MN^{2}

⟹ MN^{2} = 225

⟹ MN = 15

Thus, the length of the tangent is 15 cm.

**Q.** If the common difference of an A.P. is 3, then find a_{20 }– a_{15}.

**Sol.**

Let the first term of the AP be a.

a_{n }= a(n − 1)d

a_{20 }– a_{15} = [a + (20 – 1)d] – [a + (15 – 1)d]

= 19d – 14d

= 5d

= 5 × 3

2 Marks Important Question (www.free-education.in) |

**Important 2 Marks Questions**

Here you will get important 2 marks questions which might be asked in CBSE class 10 Mathematics paper.

- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics exam 2020, Section-B will contain 6 questions of 2 marks each.

**Some sample questions from the set of Important 2 Marks Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:**

**Q.** Solve the following system of linear equations by substitution method:

2x – y = 2

x + 3y =15

**Sol.**

Here,** **2x – y = 2

⟹ y = 2x – 2

⟹ x + 3y = 15

Substituting the value of y from (i) in (ii), we get

x + 6x – 6 = 15

⟹ 7x = 21

⟹ x = 3

From (i), y = 2 × 3 – 2 = 4

∴ x = 3 and y = 4

**Q.** From a rectangular sheet of paper ABCD with AB = 40 cm and AD = 28 cm, a semi-circular portion with BC as diameter is cut off. Find the area of remining paper (use π = 22/7)

**Sol.**

Given situation can be represented as the following diagram:

Length of paper, AB = l = 40cm

Width of paper, AD = b = 28cm

Area of paper = l × b = 40 × 28 = 1120 cm^{2}

Diameter of semi-circle = 28cm

∴ Radius of semi-circle, r = 14cm

Thus, area of semi-circle = 1/2. πr^{2}

= 1/2 × 22/7 × 14 × 14

= 308cm^{2}

∴ Area of remaining paper = 1120 – 308 = 812 cm^{2}

3 Marks Important Question (www.free-education.in) |

**Important 3 Marks Questions**

Get here a collection of important 3 marks questions which students must practice to make an effective preparation for the CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Paper 2020.

- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics exam 2020, Section-C will contain 8 questions of 3 marks each

**Some sample questions from the set of Important 3 Marks Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:**

**Q.** The sum of the 4th and 8th terms of an AP is 24 and the sum of the 6th and 10th term is 44. Find the first three terms of the AP.

**Sol.**

Given that sum of the 4th and 8th terms of an AP is 24.

⟹ a + 3d + a + 7d = 24

⟹ 2a + 10d = 24 …(i)

Also the sum of the 6th and 10th term is 44.

⟹ a + 5d + a + 9d = 44

⟹ 2a + 14d = 44 …(ii)

Subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii), we get:

4d = 20

⟹ d = 5

Substituting d = 5 in equation (i), we have:

2a + 10d = 24

⟹ 2a + 10 (5) = 24

⟹ 2a + 50 = 24

⟹ 2a = −26

⟹ a = −13

Hence first term of given A.P. is −13 and common difference is 5.

**Q.** The taxi charges in a city comprise of a fixed charge together with the charges for the distance covered. For a journey of 10 km the charge paid is Rs. 75 and for a journey of 15 km the charge paid is Rs. 110. What will a person have to pay for travelling a distance of 25 km?

**Sol.**

Let the fixed charge of taxi be Rs. x per km and the running charge be Rs y per km.

According to the question,

x + 10y = 75

x + 15y = 110

Subtracting equation (ii) from equation (i), we get

– 5y = – 35

⟹ y = 7

Putting y = 7 in equation (i), we get x = 5

∴Total charges for travelling a distance of 25 km = x + 25y

= (5 + 25 × 7)

= (5 + 175)

= Rs 180

4 Marks Important Question (www.free-education.in) |

**Important 4 Marks Questions**

Here you will get a set of important 4 marks questions to prepare for the CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Paper 2020.

- In CBSE class 10 Mathematics exam 2020, Section-D will contain 6 questions of 4 marks each

**Some sample questions from the set of Important 4 Marks Questions for CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Exam, are given below:**

**Q. **A motor boat whose speed is 24 km/hr in still water takes 1 hr more to go 32km upstream than to return downstream to the same spot. Find the speed of the stream.

**Sol.**

Let the speed of stream be x.

Then,

Speed of boat in upstream is 24 ‒ x

In downstream, speed of boat is 24 + x

According to question,

Time taken in the upstream journey ‒ Time taken in the downstream journey = 1 hour

**Q.** The first and the last terms of an AP are 10 and 361 respectively. If its common difference is 9 then find the number of terms and their total sum?

**Sol.**

Given, first term, a = 10

Last term, a_{l} = 361

And, common difference, d = 9

Now a_{l} =a + (n −1)d

⟹ 361 = 10 + (n − 1)9

⟹ 361 = 10 + 9n − 9

⟹ 361 = 9n + 1

⟹ 9n = 360

⟹ n = 40

Therefore, total number of terms in AP = 40

Now, sum of total number of terms of an AP is given as:

S_{n} = n/2 [2a + (n − 1)d]

⟹ S_{40} = 40/2 [2 × 10 + (40 − 1)9]

= 20[20 + 39 x 9]

=20[20 + 351]

=20 × 371 = 7420

Thus, sum of all 40 terms of AP = 7420
