**11) An exterior angle of a triangle is 105° and its two interior opposite angles are equal. Each of these equal angles is**

(a) 37 ½°

(b) 72 ½°

(c) 75°

(d) 52 ½°

Answer: **d**

Explanation:

The exterior angle of triangle = 105°

Let the interior angles be “x”.

By using, exterior angle theorem, Exterior angle = Sum of interior opposite angles

Therefore, 105° = x+x

2x = 105°

x = 52 ½°

**12) If one of the angles of a triangle is 130°, then the angle between the bisectors of the other two angles can be **

(a) 50°

(b) 65°

(c) 145°

(d) 155°

Answer: **d**

Explanation:

Assume a triangle ABC, such that ∠BAC=130°

Also, the bisectors of ∠B and ∠C meet at O.

To find: ∠BOC

In a triangle △ABC,

∠BAC+∠ABC+∠ACB=180°

By using the angle sum property of the triangle,

130°+∠ABC+∠ACB=180°

∠ABC+∠ACB=50°

½ (∠ABC+∠ACB)=25°

Since OB and OC bisect ∠ABC and ∠ACB

∠OBC+ ∠OCB=25°

Now, consider △OBC,

∠OBC+ ∠OCB+∠BOC=180°

25°+∠BOC=180°

∠BOC=155°

**13) If two interior angles on the same side of a transversal intersecting two parallel lines are in the ratio 2 : 3, then the greater of the two angles is**

(a) 54°

(b) 108°

(c) 120°

(d) 136°

Answer: **b**

**14) If one angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the other two angles, then the triangle is**

(a) a right triangle

(b) an isosceles triangle

(c) an equilateral triangle

(d) an obtuse triangle

Answer: **a**

Explanation: If one angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the other two angles, then the triangle is a right triangle. We know that the sum of interior angles of a triangle is equal to 180°. In the right triangle, one angle should be equal to 90°, and the remaining two angles are acute angles, and their sum is equal to 90°.

**15) The angles of a triangle are in the ratio 5 : 3: 7. The triangle is**

(a) a right triangle

(b) an acute-angled triangle

(c) an obtuse-angled triangle

(d) an isosceles triangle

Answer: **b**

Explanation: If the angles are in the ratio of 5:3:7, then a triangle is an acute angle triangle.

We know that the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180°

Therefore, 5x+3x+7x = 180°

15x = 180°

x = 180°/15 = 12°

Thus, 5x = 5(12°) =60°

3x = 3(12°) =36°

7x = 7(12°) =84°

Since all the angles are less than 90°, the triangle is an acute angle triangle.

**16) Angles of a triangle are in the ratio 2: 4 : 3. The smallest angle of the triangle is**

(a) 20°

(b) 40°

(c) 60°

(d) 80°

Answer: **b**

Explanation:

We know that the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180°

Given that, the angles of a triangle are in the ratio of 2:4:3

Hence, 2x+4x+3x = 180°

9x = 180°

x= 20°

Therefore,

2x = 2(20) = 40°

4x = 4(20) = 80°

3x = 3(20) = 60°

Hence, the angles are 40°, 80° and 60°.

Therefore, the smallest angle of a triangle is 40°.
