# An exterior angle

The diagram for the question is as -

Since QR is extended to a point S, PRS becomes the exterior angle of the ΔPQR.

It is given to us that an exterior angle of a triangle is 105°.

So, PRS = 105° - - - - (i)

It is known to us that -

If a side of a triangle is produced, then the exterior angle so formed is equal to the sum of the two interior opposite angles.

The two interior opposite angles are RPQ and PQR.

So, - - - - (ii)

But, in the question it is given that the interior opposite angles are equal.

RPQ = PQR - - - - (iii)

Substituting equation (iii) in equation (ii), we get  Substituting equation (i) in the above equation, we get RPQ = From (iii), we have RPQ = PQR Thus, each of these equal angles is . So, option (B) is correct.

Also, (Since, sum of all the angles of a triangle is 180°)

And, (By linear pair axiom) PRQ = 75°

So, we have the angles as –

RPQ = , PQR = , PRQ = 75°, and PRS = 105°

Option (A) is not correct because But, PRQ is not the exterior angle. So, each of the equal angles is not .

Option (C) is not correct because . But, this is not equal to the exterior angle, PRS, which is 105°. So, each of the equal angles is not equal to .

Option (D) is not correct because. The value of PRQ is 75° which is not the interior angle. Thus, not equal to the exterior angle. So, each of the equal angles is not equal to 75°.
