Let AE be the tower and CD be the observer. Join E and D. The observer is 28.5 m away from the tower. So, ED = 28.5 m. The observer is 1.5 m tall. So, CD = 1.5 m. Given that the angle of elevation of the top of the tower from the eye of the observer is 45°. Join A and C. Also draw a line BC from C onto AE parallel to DE. We get a right-angled triangle ABC with right angle at B and ACB = 45°. We are to find the height of the tower, that is, AE.


We see that, BC = ED = 28.5 m.


In ∆ABC,



or,



So, the height of the tower is AE = EB + BA = 1.5m + 28.5m = 30m.


The correct option is (B).
