 # Mensuration Questions With Pdf

Mensuration is a part of Advance Maths. It is divided into two parts 2D and 3D. In 2D mensuration questions, the questions are asked on the area and perimeter. In the same 3D Mensuration Questions, the questions are asked on area, volume with the perimeter.

2D Shapes – Circle, Triangle, Square, Rectangle, Polygon, Trapezium, Equilateral Triangle, Right Angle triangle, Rhombus, Parallelogram, Semicircle, Isosceles Triangle, Quadrilateral, Regular Hexagon, etc.

3D Shapes – Cube, Cuboid, Cylinder, Cone, Sphere, Hemisphere, Hollow Cylinder, Frustum, Prism , Pyramid, Tetrahadron etc.
