This set of Mathematics Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Angle Subtended by a Chord at a Point”.

1. From the diagram given below, angle subtended by the chord AB at the centre is __________

a) ∠OAB

b) ∠AOB

c) ∠ACB

d) ∠CAB

View Answer

Explanation: We can see from the diagram that “O” is the centre of the circle, therefore angle formed by the chord at the centre is ∠AOB.

2. From the diagram given below, if lengths of the chords AB and PQ are equal, then ∠AOB = ∠POQ.

a) True

b) False

View Answer

Explanation: According to the theorem 10.1, equal chords of a circle subtend equal angles at the centre.

Here, it is given that AB = PQ.

Hence, ∠AOB = ∠POQ.

3. From the diagram given below, if O is the centre of the circle and OL is perpendicular to chord AB, then which of the following is true?

a) AL > LB

b) AL < LB

c) AL ≠ LB

d) AL = LB

View Answer

Explanation: According to theorem 10.2, perpendicular from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord.

Therefore, AL = LB.
