(1) ∠ACB = 120◦.
(2) CD is the bisector of ∠ACB.


It should be C.

Statement 1: This provides us no information about D.

Statement 2: We need at least 3 parameters to accurately measure a triangle and with length of two arms, we have no way of measuring the original triangle ABC.

Combined, we should be able to measure the original triangle and its equal split at D.

Edit: Attaching diagram.

the given triangle is isoscles traingle...

stat1 : no info on location of D

stat2: not suff to calculte the length of CD..

both combines,,, triangle BCD is 30-60-90 and hence CD= 3..
ans C

hope tat helps

IMO Answer is A .
Taking approach of co-ordinate geometry, if we know angle ACB and assuming point C as origin we can find co-ordinates ofpoint A and point B . And so we also find the mid point of point A and point B. Once done we can calculate distance between two points D and C.

But option 2 will not help find anything necessary.

See the attached diagram. We have no idea of where point D lies and A gives us no clue about its position.
