**CBSE Class 9 Maths Extra Questions for Chapter 6 - Lines and Angles****:**

**1. If two lines intersect each other then the vertically opposite angles will be _______.**

**Answer: **

If two lines intersect each other then the vertically opposite angles will be __equal__.

**2. If the angles of a triangle are in the ratio 5 : 3: 2 then the triangle is:**

**(a) An acute-angled triangle**

**(b) An obtuse-angled triangle**

**(c) An isosceles triangle**

**(d) A right triangle **

**Answer:**

(d) A right triangle

(Hint; Let the angles be 5x, 3x and 2x so that 5x + 3x + 2x = 180. Then find out the value of all three angles)

**3.Is it possible to have a triangle with two obtuse angles? Give reason to support your answer.**

**Answer:**

No, it is not possible to have a triangle with two obtuse angles. Because if the triangle will have two obtuse angles (angles greater than 90°), then the sum of all three angles of the triangle will not be equal to 180°, it will be more than 180°.

**4. How many triangles can be drawn with its three angles being 47°, 70° and 85°? Give reason for your answer.**

**Answer:**

None

Sum of given angles = 47° + 70° + 85° = 202° ≠ 180°.

Since the sum of all three angles is not equal to 180°. So, no triangle can be drawn with the given angles.

**5. A transversal intersects two parallel lines as shown in the figure given below. Then which of the following statements is correct?**

**
**

**(a) Each pair of alternate interior angles is equal.**

**(b) Each pair of corresponding angles is equal.**

**(c) Each pair of interior angles on the same side of the transversal is supplementary.**

**(d) All the above statements are equal.**

**Answer:**

(d) All the above statements are equal.

**6. What is Linear Pair Axiom?**

**Answer:**

Linear Pair Axiom is a combination of the two theorems. These are:

(i) If a ray stands on a line, then the sum of two adjacent angles so formed is 180°.

(ii) If the sum of two adjacent angles is 180°, then the non-common arms of the angles form a line.

**7. What do you mean by allied angles?**

**Answer:**

Interior angles on the same side of the transversal are referred to as consecutive interior angles or allied angles or co-interior angles.

**8. In the following figure, find the value of x.**

**
**

**Answer:**

x = 18^{o}

**9. In the following figure, OP and OQ are the bisectors of ****∠BOC and ****∠AOC. Then find ****∠POQ.**

**
**

**Answer:**

∠POQ = 90^{o}

**10. An exterior angle of a triangle is _________ than either of its interior opposite angles.**

**Answer:**

An exterior angle of a triangle is __greater__ than either of its interior opposite angles.
