Hi,

I thought angle COB is 180-42=138 degrees. You have derived angle COB of 228 degrees.
Can you please explain.


That's why I mentioned arc CAB. 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.

According to me, CB is not the diameter. So central angle doesnt apply in this case. Also, COB is 138 and not 228.

Hi buddy,

COB is indeed 180-48 = 132 degrees . 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 ( 360-132) = 228 /2 = 114 .

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

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

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. :)

Angle COB is not 180.

Note that the angle around O will be 360 degrees. 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)

Hi Karishma

can't we take this way that smaller COB is 132 and then CEB = 180 - (132/2) ? using cyclic quadrilateral property.

All vertices of a cyclic quadrilateral must lie on the circle. Angle COB does not lie on the circle. As given, the figure has no cyclic quadrilateral.
