(a) 15°

(b) 25°

(c) 30°

(d) 35°

Answers:

1: (b) 50° [

**Hint**: Δ ABC, AB = AC is an isosceles triangle, ∠B =∠C ]

2: (a) 6 cm [

**Hint**: Δ ABC, ∠C = ∠A, an isosceles triangle, BC = AB]

3: (d) a right triangle

[

**Hint**: Δ ABC, ∠A = ∠B + ∠C, ∵ ∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° ⇒ 2∠A = 180° ⇒ ∠A = 90° ]

4: (d) AC > AB [

**Hint**: Δ ABC, ∠B = 90°, AC is hypotenuse]

5: (b) ∠A = ∠C [

**Hint**: Δ ABC, AB = BC is an isosceles triangle, ∠A =∠C ]

6: (a) PQ [

**Hint**: ∠R = 70° is the largest, the side opposite to the largest angle is the longest.]

7: (b) BA > BP

[

**Hint**: Consider the triangle as show in fig-q7,

Given, ∠BAP = ∠CAP = z (say)

∠APC is an exterior angle for ΔBAP

⇒ ∠APC = ∠ABP + ∠BAP

⇒ ∠APC > ∠BAP (greater angle has greater side opposite to it.)

⇒ BA > BP]

8: (b) 50°

[

**Hint**:AB = AC ⇒ ∠ABD = ∠ACD = 40°. ⇒ ∠BAC = 100°

Δ ABD ≅ Δ ACD by SSS congruence

∠BAD = ∠CAD = 100°/2 = 50°]

9: (c) AB = DE, BC = EF, CA = FD

[

**Hint**: Remember CPCT for

*corresponding parts of congruent triangles*.]

10: (d) AC > AB

[

**Hint**: ∠B = 90°, AC is hypotenuse the longest side. ]

11: (b) 10 [

**Hint**: ∠A = ∠C, ⇒AB = BC = 3.]

12: (c) AAA

13: (c) 30° [

**Hint**: x + 2x + 90° = 180° ⇒ 3x = 90° ⇒ x = 30° ]
