B) (90o, 60o, 30o)

C) (54o, 66o, 60o)

D) (69o, 51o, 60o)

Ans: A (since sum of the angles in a triangle = 180o.)

A) (12, 8, 6)

B) (12, 6,

C) (6, 6,

D) (6, 8, 6)

*
E - no. of edges V - no. of vertices F - no. of faces*

B 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 1

C 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1

A-(B C)

(I might have interchanged the values of A, B & C but still try this.)

**

? ?

? ?

? ?

A) y = log x B) y = log 10x C) y = -10log x D) y = ex

following series:**

**
B B G M P Q B G S K O B G A S B B G D E F B G S T I**
