Solution

(d) 120° We are given that an equilateral ΔABC is inscribed in a circle with centre O. We need to find ∠BOC We have the following corresponding figure: We are given AB = BC = AC Since the sides AB, BC, and AC are these equal chords of the circle. So, the angle subtended by these chords at the centre will be equal. Hence Hence, the correct answer is option (d).
