Solution

## The correct option is A an isosceles right angle triangleStep 1: Draw the line segment AB of the length 6 cm. Step 2: Measure the angle A with your protractor. Make a mark at 90 degrees and draw a line from A passing through the mark. Step 3: Cut an arc of radius 8.48 cm on the line passing through the point A from point B. The point where this arc cuts the line is the point C. Step 4: Draw a line from C to point B to get the required triangle ABC, as shown below. From the above construction, we see that the measure of side AC is also 6 cm. Hence,the above triangle formed is Isosceles right angle triangle.
