1. Match the following:

(i) Straight angle (a) Less than one-fourth of a revolution

(ii) Right angle (b) More than half a revolution

(iii) Acute angle (c) Half of a revolution

(iv) Obtuse angle (d) One-fourth of a revolution

(v) Reflex angle (e) Between 1 / 4 and 1 / 2 of a revolution

(f) One complete revolution

Solutions:

(i) Straight angle = 1800 or half of a revolution

(ii) Right angle = 900 or one-fourth of a revolution

(iii) Acute angle = less than 900 or less than one-fourth of a revolution

(iv) Obtuse angle = more than 900 but less than 1800 or between 1 / 4 and 1 / 2 of a revolution

(v) Reflex angle = more than 1800 but less than 3600 or more than half a revolution

2. Classify each one of the following angles as right, straight, acute, obtuse or reflex:

Solutions:

(i) The given angle is acute angle it measures less than 900
