View Answer

Explanation: : If a pyramid is cut by a plane perpendicular to its axis section gives the base shape or parallel to axis and also parallel to any edge of base then the section formed will be trapezium if the section plane not parallel to edge of base then the section will be a triangle.

6. A square pyramid is placed on H.P on its square base and section plane is perpendicular to V.P and inclined to H.P cutting given solid in such a way that the perpendicular distance from the ends of section to axis is same. The section will be _____________

a) square

b) triangle

c) irregular pentagon

d) rhombus

View Answer

Explanation: Given a square pyramid it may of any size having any distances in between them if a section plane cutting the solid coincides with base edge and cutting pyramid gives a irregular square and similar to other based pyramids also.

7. A square pyramid is placed on H.P on its square base and section plane is perpendicular to V.P and parallel to H.P and cutting the solid. The section will be ______________

a) square

b) triangle

c) irregular pentagon

d) rhombus

View Answer

Explanation: If a pyramid is cut by a plane perpendicular to its axis section gives the base shape or parallel to axis and also parallel to any edge of base then the section formed will be trapezium if the section plane not parallel to edge of base then the section will be a triangle.

8. A square pyramid is placed on H.P on its square base and section plane is parallel to V.P and not parallel to edge of base is cutting the solid. The section will be _____________

a) square

b) triangle

c) irregular pentagon

d) trapezium

View Answer

Explanation: If a pyramid is cut by a plane parallel to axis and also parallel to any edge of base then the section formed will be trapezium if the section plane not parallel to edge of base then the section will be triangle.

9. A regular pentagonal pyramid of base side equal to 5 cm is resting on H.P on its pentagon face and section plane is parallel to axis and parallel to edge of base and plane is 2 cm away from axis. The section will be _____________

a) triangle

b) trapezium

c) rectangle

d) pentagon

View Answer

Explanation: If a pyramid is cut by a plane parallel to axis and also parallel to any edge of base then the section formed will be trapezium if the section plane not parallel to edge of base then the section will be triangle.

10. A regular pentagonal pyramid of base side equal to 5 cm is resting on H.P on its pentagon face and section plane is perpendicular to axis. The section will be __________

a) triangle

b) trapezium

c) rectangle

d) pentagon

View Answer

Explanation: If a pyramid is cut by a plane perpendicular to its axis section gives the base shape or parallel to axis and also parallel to any edge of base then the section formed will be trapezium if the section plane not parallel to edge of base then the section will be triangle.

11. A regular octagonal pyramid of base side equal to 6 cm is resting on its octagon face on ground and section plane is parallel to axis and parallel to one of edges of base is held at a distance of 2 cm away from axis the section will be ____________

a) triangle

b) trapezium

c) rectangle

d) octagon

View Answer

Explanation: If a pyramid is cut by a plane parallel to axis and also parallel to any edge of base then the section formed will be trapezium if the section plane not parallel to edge of base then the section will be a triangle.
