Assertion and Reason Questions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 3 Linear Equations in Two Variables

Directions: In the following questions, a statement of assertion (A) is followed by a statement of reason (R). Mark the correct choice as:
(a) Both assertion (A) and reason (R) are true and reason (R) is the correct explanation of assertion (A).
(b) Both assertion (A) and reason (R) are true but reason (R) is not the correct explanation of assertion (A).
(C) Assertion (A) is true but reason (R) is false.
(d) Assertion (A) is false but reason (R) is true.

Q.1. Assertion: The graph of the linear equations 3x+2y=12 and 5x-2y=4 gives a pair of intersecting lines.
Reason: The graph of linear equations a1x+b1y+c1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2=0 gives a pair of intersecting lines if a1/a2 ≠ b1/b2

Q.2. Assertion: If the pair of lines are coincident, then we say that pair of lines is consistent and it has a unique solution.
Reason: If the pair of lines are parallel, then the pairs has no solution and is called inconsistent pair of equations.

Q.3. Assertion: The linear equations x-2y-3=0 and 3x+4y-20=0 have exactly one solution
Reason: The linear equation 2x+3y-9=0 and 4x+6y-18=0 have a unique solution.

Q.4. Assertion: The graphical representation of the equations x+2y=3 and 2x+4y+7=0 gives a pair of coincident lines.
Reason: The graph of linear equations a1x+b1y+c1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2=0 gives a pair of intersecting lines if a1/a2 ≠ b1/b2

Q.5. Assertion: The value of k for which the system of equations 3x+ky=0 and 2x-y=0 has a unique solution is k ≠ -3/2
Reason: The graph of linear equations a1x+b1y+c1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2=0 gives a pair of intersecting lines if a1/a2 ≠ b1/b2

Q.6. Assertion: The number of common solutions for the system of linear equations 5x+4y+6=0 and 10x+8y=12 is zero.
Reason: The graph of linear equations a1x+b1y+c1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2=0 gives a pair of intersecting lines if a1/a2 ≠ b1/b2

Q.7. Assertion: The value of k for which the system of linear equations 3x-4y=7 and 6x-8y=k have infinite number of solution is 14.
Reason: The graph of linear equations a1x+b1y+c1=0 and a2x+b2y+c2=0 gives a pair of intersecting lines if a1/a2 ≠ b1/b2

Q.8. Assertion: A pair of linear equations has no solution (s) if it is represented by intersecting lines graphically.
Reason: If the pair of lines are intersecting, then the pair has unique solution and is called consistent pair of equations.
