#### Solution

It is given that sinA and sinB are the roots of the equation $c^2 x^2 - c\left( a + b \right)x + ab = 0$

$\therefore \sin A + \sin B = - \frac{- c\left( a + b \right)}{c^2} \left( \text{ Sum of roots } = - \frac{b}{a} \right)$
$\Rightarrow \sin A + \sin B = \frac{a + b}{c}$
$\Rightarrow \sin A + \sin B = \frac{k\sin A + k\sin B}{k\sin C} \left( \text{ Sine rule } \right)$

$\Rightarrow \sin A + \sin B = \frac{\sin A + \sin B}{\sin C}$
$\Rightarrow \sin C = 1 = \sin90°$
$\Rightarrow C = 90°$
