A
BD2

B
BE.BC

C
AB.BC

D
BD.DC

Solution

The correct options are
A BD2
B BE.BC

In ABD and BDC
ADB=BDC=90
A=DBC (Since in BDC,DBC=90C=A
and in ABCA=90C)                   
Therefore, ADBBDC by AA similarity
ADDB=BDDC=ABBC
BD2=AD.DC

DBC=DBE (Common angle)
BDC=DEB=90
Similarly BDCBED

BDBE=DCED=BCBD
BD2=BE×BCBD2=AD×DC=BE×BC
