Answer :


(i) From the diagram, it is clear that the angle of elevation of A with respect to C is 30˚ where BC becomes the horizontal.


(ii) DC is a vertical line drawn from A so that we get a reference line from which we can measure the depression angle.


As AD and BC are both vertical lines therefore they are parallel.


Now ACB = CAD as they are alternate angles along two parallel lines


therefore, CAD = 60˚


Now, from the diagram drawn before we can easily say that


The angle of depression of C at A is 60˚


(iii)




BC = 8√3m


Now,




or,



AC = 16m.
