Each side of a given polygon is parallel to either the X or the Y axis. A corner of such a polygon is said to be convex if the internal angle is 90o or concave if the internal angle is 270o. If the number of convex corners in such a polygon is 25, the number of concave corners must be:

(1)20

I also think the answer is 21...

In the figure attached

1,2,3,4 so on represent convex angles...

1`,2`,3`... so on represent concave angles... which will be 21..

Sum of all the angles is 180(n-2).
Let the total no of 90 deg angle be x
Let the total no of 270 deg angle be y

n= x+y, so sum of all the angles is 180(x+y -2)

so, 90x + 270y = 180(x+y -2)
90x + 270y = 180x+ 180y - 360
90y = 90x -360

Given x=25
y= (90*25 - 360)/90
y= 21

Very well explained.

thanks nverma..

This clearly hints that rather than getting bogged down by question person should just apply for basics
