Angle AOB=60

Angle ADB=Angle subtended by minor arc AB at the circumference=\(\frac{1}{2}\)*Angle subtended by minor arc AB at centre (angle AOB)=60/2=30

Ans. (D)

Since the triangle ABO is equilateral therefore the angle drawn at center = 60º

Using the property attached in figure "Angle drawn at centre is always twice the angle drawn at circumference if the angles are drawn by the same arc"

Hence, required angle ADB = (1/2)*Angle AOB = (1/2)*60 = 30º

Answer: option D

Since triangle ABO is an equilateral triangle, central angle AOB = 60 degrees and thus minor arc AB is also 60 degrees. Since angle ADB is an inscribed angle intercepting arc AB, angle ADB will be half the measure of arc AB and, therefore, angle ADB = 30 degrees.

Answer: D

Triangle ABO is an equilateral triangle, means all angles are 60 degrees, including the one at the center ,angle AOB,

All angles made by two points are half the angle made by the points on the center , so d can be anywhere on the major arc the angle will be 30 degrees.


Option D is correct.
