Question

In the given figure, AB is the diameter. The tangent at C meets AB produced at Q.
If ∠CAB = 34°, Find:

(i)∠CBA (ii) ∠CQB

Solution

i) AB is diameter of circle.
∴  ACB = 90°
In ΔABC,
`∠`A + B + `∠`C = 180°
 ⇒  34° +  `∠`CBA + 90° =  180°
⇒  `∠`CBA =  56°
ii) QC is tangent to the circle
∴ `∠`CAB  = `∠`QCB
Angle between tangent and chord = angle in alternate segment
∴  `∠`QCB =  34°
ABQ is a straight line

⇒  `∠`ABC + `∠`CBQ = 180°
⇒ 56° +  `∠`CBQ = 180°

⇒ CBQ = 124°
Now,
`∠`CQB  = 180° -  `∠`QCB  = CBQ
⇒  `∠`CQB  = 180° - 34°- 124°
⇒  `∠`CQB   =  22°

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
