26. (D) 27. (A) The line touches the $x-axis$ when $y=0$. Hence, 28. (B) This is right-triangle. So, by using Pythagoras theorem, we have 29. (A) By using formula for calculating volume of the right-circular cylinder, we have 30. (C) This is a geometric sequence with common ratio 2 and the first term is 1. By using formula for calculating sum of the n terms of a geometric sequence, we have
