Solution

## The correct option is D Either option B or CIn the triangles ΔADB and ΔADC, AD is the common side and BD = DC (Since D is the midpoint of BC) Hence ratio of corresponding sides of ΔADB and ΔADC should be equal. ADAD=BDDC=ABAC⇒1=ABAC⇒AB=AC⇒∠B=∠C Hence one of the conditions is enough as the other can be inferred from either Option B or Option C.
