Excerpt: ... EXAMINATION PAPERS IN EUCLID. I. College of Preceptors, Midsummer 1890. Third Class. 1. What meaning do you give to the terras base, radius, parallelogram? Write out one Postulate and two Axioms. 2. Euclid I. 2. Suppose A were on the circumference of the smaller circle used in the construction, where would the vertex of the equilateral triangle fall? 3. Euclid I. 5. Show that the straight line which bisects the vertical angle of an isosceles triangle also bisects the base. 4. Euclid I. 12. 5. Any two angles of an isosceles triangle are together less than two right angles. 6. Euclid I. 19. 7. Either, Euclid I. 25. Or, If two straight lines cut one another, and if two of the adjacent angles be bisected, the bisecting lines shall be at right angles to one another. H. College of Preceptors, Christmas 1890. Third Class. 1. Define a straight line, a plane rectilineal angle, and an equilateral triangle. 2. Euclid L 1. 3. Euclid I. 6. 4. Euclid I. 9. If D and E are points on AB and AC equidistant from A, show that the bisector of the angle bisects DE and is at right angles to it. 5. Euclid I. 13. Two straight lines AC, AD are drawn from A in the line BAE, on one side of it; then the angles BAC, CAD, DAE together equal two right angles. 6. Euclid I. 18. 7. Either, Euclid I. 22. Show how the construction would fail if two of the lines were not together greater than the third. Illustrate your answer by a figure. Or, Euclid I. 26, Case 1. III. College of Preceptors, Midsummer 1890. Second Class. 1. Define a point and a straight line. Euclid I. 2. How would you proceed further to draw a second equal straight line from the given point in a given direction? If the given point lies on the smaller of the two circles (in Euclid's construction), show that the vertex of the ...
