Question

In triangle ABC, right angled at B, if A is made smaller and smaller till it becomes zero, and AB = 1 unit, what can you say about sides BC and AC ?



A

1, 1

B

0, 1

C

1, 0

D

0, 0

Solution

The correct option is B

0, 1


As A gets smaller and smaller, the length of the side BC decreases.

  • The point C gets closer to point B and finally A becomes very close to zero.
  • AC becomes almost the same as AB.

So, when A is very close to 0
AC is nearly the same as AB and BC tends to achieve the value zero .
Length of BC becomes 0 units and length of AC becomes almost 1 unit.
