Line segments AB and CD are of equal length and perpendicular bisectors of one another. If a line segment is drawn connecting point A to point C, what is the measure of angle ACD?

A. 0°
B. 45°
C. 60°
D. 90°
E. 180

How can we assume that it's a 45.45.90 and not a 30.60.90? Latter would create ambiguity b/w choosing 30 or 60?

A perpendicular bisector is a line which cuts a line segment into two equal parts at 90°.

Look at the diagram below:

Angle ACD = 45°.

Answer: B.

Hope it's clear.
