Question

In the given figure, PQ is the diameter of the circle whose centre is O. Given ∠ROS = 42°, Calculate ∠RTS. Solution Join PS.
∠PSQ = 90°
(Angle in a semicircle)
Also, ∠SPR=1/2 ∠ROS
(Angle ate the centre is double the angle at the circumference subtended by the same chord)
⇒ SPT =1/2 xx 42°= 21°
∴ In right triangle PST,
∠PTS = 90° -∠SPT
⇒ ∠RTS = 90°- 21° = 69°

Is there an error in this question or solution?
