The OE
Can any one explain it..

A. This problem relies heavily on the concepts of inscribed and central angles. If all the inscribed angles in the figure (GAF, FBE, ECD, and their "opposite" angles across the circle) are the same measurement, then there are 6 identical inscribed angles in the semicircle. Now, consider if each arclength - AB, BC, CD, etc. - were created by central angles. That would be six 30-degree angles from the center of the circle, and since inscribed angles measure half of their corresponding central angles, that means that the inscribed angles are 15 degrees, making A the correct answer.

Let "O" be the center of the circle
Angle AOG=180

Arcs GF=FE=ED=DC=CD=BA
Total: 6 arcs
180/6=30

So angles GOF=FOE=EOD=DOC=COB=BOA=30

Inscribed angles measure half of their corresponding central angles = 30/2 = 15

All 3 lines are parallel, and the internal angel FAG EBF and DCE are equal.
so the other 3 angle must be identical
(just for clear understanding take the section ABFG.
you know the distance between AF and BG are equal as BF // AG
so the angle made by BG on AG must be equal to the angle made by FA on AG)
When angles are same the arc must be same...

hope you got it

OK now what, this is how you got AB = FG , and BC = EF , but how AB=BC = CD possible??

because these lines are parallel to each other.

as per the given question stem each of the six arch would make equal angle at the circumference of the circle that implies the archs are of equal length. Angle each of them formed at the center must also be equal, which implies each formed an angle of 180/6 degrees and angle formed at the center is double the angle formed at the circumference, and importantly, required angle is at the circumference => angle CFB =180 /6*2= 15 degress -> option A

Bunuel
VeritasPrepKarishma please confirm, is D placed exactly in the middle of the semicircle? If yes then I have a solution. But before I discuss my solution that took me like years to figure out, please share your explanations and related concepts. Thanks a lot :-)
