Exercise 8.2

Type 1

Question 1 

Answer the following questions :

(i) If any transversal intersects two parallel lines in such a way that the ratio of interior angles on the same side is 2 : 7 , then f‌ind the measure of the bigger angle in degrees.

(ii) If two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal, what relation will exist between alternate angles ?

(iii) If each of the two lines is parallel to a third line, what relation exists between them ?

(iv) At what angle, in degree measure, all perpendiculars drawn to a line segment are inclined to one another ?

(v) If P be a point not lying on line ‘l’ then how many lines parallel to ‘l’ through the point P, can be drawn ?

Type 3

Question 9

In the given figure , p is a transversal of the lines m and n and ∠1=60° and \angle 2=\dfrac{2}{3} of a right angle. Prove that m||n.

Sol :


Question 10

In the given figure , m||n and p||q. If ∠1=75° , then prove that \angle 2=\angle 1+\dfrac{1}{3} of right angles

Sol :

[Hint: ∠BAC=∠1=75° [alternate angles]

Now , ∠2+∠BAC=180°  [sum of the interior angle son the same side of transversal n]

∴ ∠2=180°-∠BAC


=105°=75°+30°=\angle 1+\dfrac{1}{3} of right angle ]


Question 11

In the given figure , if x=y and a=b , prove that r||n

Sol :


Question 12

lf m,n, p are three lines such that p||m and n⊥p, prove that n⊥m 

Sol :




Question 13

What are the conditions for two lines to be parallel ?

Sol :


Question 14

In the given f‌igure, l and m are two intersecting lines and p||l and q||m. Prove that p and q are also intersecting lines .



Question 15

If a line is perpendicular to any one of the two parallel lines , prove that this line will also be perpendicular to the other parallel line

Sol :



Question 16

In the given f‌igure, AB||CD and AD||BC, prove that ∠DAB=∠DCB.

Sol :

[Hint: AB||DC and transversal BC meets them]

∴ ∠ABC+∠BCD=180°..(i)

Again AD||BC

∴ ∠DAB+∠ABC=180°..(ii)

From (i) and (ii) , ∠ABC+∠BCD=∠DAB+∠ABC=180°

or ∠DAB=∠BCD=∠DAB ]

Question 17

A transversal intersects two given lines m and n in such a way that interior angles on the same side of the transversal are equal , then it is always true that the given lines are parallel ? If not , state the condition under which the two lines will be parallel.

[Hint: m||n only when transversal line is perpendicular to both m and n]


Question 18

Prove that the two lines that are respectively perpendicular to two intersecting lines intersect each other .

[Hint: As shown in the given figure , lines MN and PQ are perpendicular to intersecting lines AB and CD respectively. If possible , suppose lines MN and PQ do not intersect , then definitely MN||PQ.

But we know that two parallel lines cannot be simultaneously perpendicular to two intersecting lines. So , it is wrong to assume that MN||PQ. Hence MN and PQ are intersecting lines ]


Question 19

In the given f‌igure, lines AB and CD are parallel and any point P lies between these lines . Prove that ∠ABP+∠CDO=∠DPB

[Hint: Through point P , draw a line PM||AB and proceed.]

Question 20

If a transversal intersects two lines such that the bisectors of a pair of alternate angles are parallel, then prove that the two lines are parallel

Sol :


[Hint: Proceed as in solved example 20 page 8.27]


Question 21

Prove that the two lines that are respectively perpendiculars to two parallel lines are parallel to each other.

Sol :
