CAT 2003(L) Question 88

Question 88

In the figure below, AB is the chord of a circle with center O. AB is extended to C such that BC = OB. The straight line CO is produced to meet the circle at D. If $$\angle{ACD}$$ = y degrees and $$\angle{AOD}$$ = x degrees such that x = ky, then the value of k is


Since Angle BOC = Angle BCO = y.

Angle OBC = 180-2y .

Hence Angle ABO =  z = 2y = Angle OAB.

Now since x is exterior angle of triangle AOC .

We have x = z + y = 3y.

Hence option A.
