Quantitative Aptitude – Geometry – Circles

Question

ABCD is a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle with centre O. If ∠COD = 120 degrees and ∠BAC = 30 degrees, then the value of ∠BCD (in degrees) is

Answer

90

Solution

From CAT 2017 – Quantitative Aptitude – Geometry – Circles, we can see that,

OD = OC (Radius of circle)

So, angle (ODC) = angle (OCD) = 30 deg

Angle (DOA) = 60 degrees

Angle (BAC) = 30 degrees (Given)

OA = OD (radius of circle)

Angle (ODA) = angle (OAD) = 60 deg

Sum of Opposite angles in a cyclic quad are 180 deg

Angle (BAD) + angle (BCD) = 180

So, angle (BCD) = 90 deg

Answer: 90 degrees
