Your Answer

Correct Answer
C

Your Answer
D
Equilateral triangle

Solution

The correct option is B Right angled triangle

Suppose, 
ΔABC is a right angled triangle.
We can see that two sides BC and AC are perpendicular to each other.

An altitude is a perpendicular line drawn from the vertex to the opposite side of the triangle.

Here, side BC is also  an altitude from B to the side AC and also side AC is an altitude from A to side BC.
