Question of The Day27-07-2020

In the given figure, what will be the measure of the ∠ECB – ∠ BAC? (Given: O is the centre of the circle)

Answer

Correct Answer : a ) 15o

Explanation :

In the given figure,

We know that the angle subtended on the circumference of the circle is half the angle subtended at the centre of the circle by the same arc.

So,

∠BAC=\({1 \over 2}\)∠BOC=\({1 \over 2}\)*70=35o………1

Similarly,

⇒∠DCA=\({1 \over 2}\)∠DOA=\({1 \over 2}\)*80=40o

We know that, angle subtended by the semicircle/diameter on the circumference is 90 degree

So, ∠BCA = 90o

Now, ∠ ECB = ∠ BCA – ∠ DCA = 90o – 40o = 50o ……….  (2)

Therefore, from equation 1 and 2

∠ECB – ∠ BAC = 50o – 35o = 15o

Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
