To draw a pair of tangents to a circle which are inclined to each other at an angle of 60°, it is required to draw tangents at end points of those two radii of the circle, the angle between them should be ______.

#### Options

135°

90°

60°

120°

#### Solution

To draw a pair of tangents to a circle which are inclined to each other at an angle of 60°, it is required to draw tangents at end points of those two radii of the circle, the angle between them should be **120°**.

**Explanation:**

The angle between them should be 120° because in that case the figure formed by the intersection point of pair of tangent, the two end points of those-two radii tangents are drawn) and the centre of the circle is a quadrilateral.

From figure it is quadrilateral,

∠POQ + ∠PRQ = 180° ......[∴ Sum of opposite angles are 180°]

60°+ θ = 180°

θ = 120°

Hence, the required angle between them is 120°.
