Quantitative Aptitude - Geometry - Circles - ABCD is a quadrilateral inscribed Quantitative Aptitude - Geometry - Circles Question ABCD is a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle with centre O. If ∠COD = 120 degrees and ∠BAC = 30 degrees, then the value of ∠BCD (in degrees) is Answer 90 Solution From CAT 2017 - Quantitative Aptitude - Geometry - Circles, we can see that, OD = OC (Radius of circle) So, angle (ODC) = angle (OCD) = 30 deg Angle (DOA) = 60 degrees Angle (BAC) = 30 degrees (Given) OA = OD (radius of circle)
