Q. |
## A cylinder is been cut by a plane parallel to its base the section will be |

A. | parabola |

B. | circle |

C. | rectangle |

D. | ellipse |

Answer» B. circle | |

Explanation: cylinder is formed by rotating the rectangle about one of its sides which is said to axis further. so if the cutting plane is parallel to axis the section formed is rectangle and if plane is perpendicular to axis it gives circle. |

- 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 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 not parallel to any of the edges of base is held at a distance of 4 cm away from axis the section will be
- A cylinder is placed on V.P on its base and the section plane is parallel to H.P cutting the solid into two equal parts the top view of the 1st part of cylinder will be
- A sphere is placed on H.P and section plane is parallel to H.P the section is circle and if the section plane is parallel to V.P the section is again circle.
- If a square is placed on its base parallel to horizontal plane, and plane containing square is perpendicular to horizontal plane and inclined to vertical plane then the top view gives a line of length equal to side of square.
- A cylinder is kept in such a way its axis is parallel to both the reference planes and cut completely by a section plane is perpendicular to V.P and inclined to H.P then the section will be
- A cylinder is placed on H.P on its base and section plane is parallel to V.P cutting the solid the section gives
