Choices
Choice (4)  Response  

a.  70 

b.  60 

c.  50 

d.  80 

Answer
c.Explanation
Let, measure of angle A and C be x.
So, measure of ………. . (i)
The sum of measurement of all the angles of triangle is 180.
So, x + x + measure of B = 180
So, measure of ………. . (ii)
Solving both the equations,
x = 50 i. e. measure of A = measure of C = 50
Measure of angle b will be 80
