Q. 15 C

Three points A, B and C lie on the circle with centre O in such a way that AOCB is a parallelogram, let us calculate the value of AOC.

Answer :


As OABC is a parallelogram, therefore, opposite angles will be equal.


AOC = ABC --------- (1)


Also, ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral, therefore sum of opposite angles must be 180°


ADC + ABC = 180 ---------- (2)


By the theorem:-


The angle formed at the centre of a circle by an arc, is double of the angle formed by the same arc at any point on circle.


AOC = 2 ADC -------- (3)


From (1), (2) and (3), we get,




AOC = 120°
