Solution

In ∆ABC, AB = \[6\sqrt{3}\] cm, AC = 12 cm, BC = 6 cm.

AB2 =  `(6sqrt(3))`2 = 108
AC2 = (12)2 = 144
BC2 = (6)2 = 36
108 + 36 = 144

In a triangle, if the square of one side is equal to the sum of the squares of the remaining two sides, then the triangle is a right angled triangle.

In a right angled triangle, if one side is half of the hypotenuse then the angle opposite to that side is 30°.
Here, BC is half of AC.

Thus, measure of ∠A is 30°

Hence, the correct option is 30°
