Since, CD and AB are two diameters of the circle, so their intersection is the centre. Let's denote this centre O. Angle CEB is inscribed, and angle COB is corresponding central angle (arc CAB). The value of angle COB=180+48=228 degrees. The measure of inscribed angle is always half the measure of the central angle. Angle CEB is equal =228/2=114 degrees. The correct answer is A.

A 114 B 100 C 80 D 96 E 40 Kudos from me, because I love problems with central angles:)

The correct answer is A. Hi, I thought angle COB is 18042=138 degrees. You have derived angle COB of 228 degrees. Can you please explain.

There is a concept of major and minor segment ( please google this ) Now the point O is in the minor segment of the arc and in this case it would be half of the angle subtended in the major segment i.e ( 360132) = 228 /2 = 114 .

You don't really need to understand the notions of major and minor arc. Corresponding central angle means that it stays on the same arc as your inscribed angle.

Hi Smyarga, how did you get 180 degrees? i thought about vertically opposite angles then realised that i was wrong.

A 114 B 100 C 80 D 96 E 40 Join Segment AE in the figure, we know Angle AEC is half of Angle COA(Assuming diameter intersect at point O). Angle AEC = 24 Ab is diameter, so Angle AEB = 90 Angle CEB = 90+24 = 114

You don't really need to understand the notions of major and minor arc. Corresponding central angle means that it stays on the same arc as your inscribed angle. another approach, join C and A. since AB is the diameter, A, C, E and B form a cyclic quadrilateral. now opposit angles of cyclic quadrilaterals sum up to 180 degrees. considering the point of intersection of the 2 diameters as O. angle AOC = 48 degrees. ........... given OA = OC, radius of the circle, hence trianlge OAC is isoceles. thus angle ACO = angle OAC = 66 degrees. now, angle OAC + angle CEB = 180 degrees......... since opposit angles of cyclic quadrilaterals sum up to 180 degrees. therefore, angle CEB = 180  66 = 114 degrees. hope this was helpful. kudos if you like.

Hi,
Can any1 explain me how angle COB=180 degrees. Why is the sum 180+48?

There is angle COB, the smaller angle (the angle that arc CEB subtends at the center) and angle COB, the larger angle (shown by red arrow around center O in the second diagram). The major arc CADB subtends larger angle COB at the center and inscribed angle CEB at the circle. The central angle will be twice the inscribed angle. The larger angle COB = angle COA + angle AOD + angle DOB = 180 + 48 = 228 = Central angle Inscribed angle = 228/2 = 114 Answer (A)
