IV. Answer the following.

Question 15.

Can we have two acute angles whose sum is

(i) an acute angle? Why or why not?

Answer:

Yes. The sum of two acute angles is again an acute angle.

For example: 15° and 35° two acute angles and 15° + 35° = 50°, an acute angle.

(ii) a right angle? Why or why not?

Answer:

Yes. The sum of two acute angles may be equal to a right angle.

For example: 35° and 55° are two acute angles and 35° + 55° = 90°, a right angle.

(iii) an obtuse angle? Why or why not?

Answer:

Yes. The sum of two acute angles may be an obtuse angle.

For example: 45° and 55° are two acute angles and 45° + 55° = 100°, an obtuse angle.

(iv) a straight angle? Why or why not?

Answer:

No. The sum of two acute angles is always less than a straight angle.

As, acute angles are less than 90°, so the sum of two acute angles is always less than 180°, a straight angle.

(v) a reflex angle? Why or why not?

Answer:

No. The sum of two acute angles is always less than a reflex angle.

As, sum of two acute angles are always less than 180°, so it is always less than a reflex angle.

Question 16.

Can we have two obtuse angles whose sum is

(i) a reflex angle? Why or why not?

Answer:

Yes. The sum of two obtuse angles is always greater than 180°, a reflex angle.

(ii) a full turn? Why or why not?

Answer:

No. The sum of two obtuse angles is always greater than 180°, but less than 360° a full turn.

Question 17.

An angle is said to be trisected, if it is divided into three equal parts. If in the figure shown here, ∠BAC = ∠CAD = ∠DAE, how many trisectors are there for ∠BAE?

Answer:

Two, AC and AD

Question 18.

In the given figure,

(i) name any four angles that appear to be acute angle.

Answer:

∠ABE, ∠ADE, ∠BAE, ∠BCE (Answer may vary)

(ii) name any two angles that appear to be obtuse angle.

Answer:

∠BCD, ∠BAD

Question 19.

(i) What is the angle between its two adjacent spokes?

Answer:

10°

(ii) What is the angle between a spoke and its neighbouring 4th spoke?

Answer:

30°

Question 20.

Assertion: A straight angle contains 2 right angles.

In the given question, a statement of Assertion is followed by a statement of Reason. Choose the correct option as:

(a) Both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

(d) Assertion is false and the reason is true.

Answer:

(a) Both assertion and reason are true and the reason is the correct explanation of assertion.

Question 21.

Puzzle: I am an acute angle. If you double my measure, you get a right angle. If you triple my measure, you will get an obtuse angle. If you quadruple (four times) my measure, you will get a straight angle! Who am I?

Answer:

45°
