                                                                                     Group Question

Read the passage carefully and answer the following questions Anxiety is apprehension of experiencing fear in the future.

The danger feared isn’t imminent and may not even be known or realistic. In contrast, fear is an emotional and physical reaction to a present, known threat. Anxiety is typically characterized by obsessive worry and an inability to concentrate that may affect our sleep.
It can trigger a full-blown fight-flight-or-freeze response of our sympathetic nervous system that prepares us to meet real danger. However, a big difference between fear and anxiety is that because anxiety is an emotional response to something that hasn’t occurred - there is nothing to fight or flee. Therefore, tension builds up inside our body, but there is no action we can take to release it. Instead, our mind goes round and round, replaying possibilities and scenarios.
When excessive, unrealistic worry persists about two or more things for at least six months and is accompanied by at least three of these symptoms: irritability, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, sleep problems, or the last two listed above, there is a problem. In some cases, anxiety can manifest in specific phobias that are inappropriate to the specific situation, or in a panic disorder, where we feel sudden, unprovoked terror that can cause chest pain and a  choking sensation and be mistaken for a heart attack.
Psychotherapy empowers patients to reduce anxiety by changing beliefs, thoughts, and behavior throughout their lives without the side effects of prescription drugs. Effective therapies include various forms of cognitive-behavioral techniques, such as exposure therapy, CBT, and dialectical behavioral therapy.

QUESTION: 27

Two tangents PR and PQ from point P to a circle with center O are inclined to each other at 120°. What is angle POQ equals to? 

Solution:

Solution: Consider the following figure

We have, Δ POR and Δ POQ

/(PR) = /(PQ) (since Length of the tangents from an external point to a circle is equal) So PO = PO (Common side to both the triangles) Also, OR = OQ (Radii of circle). So Δ  POR and Δ  POQ are congruent triangles. OPR = OPQ (Corresponding angles of congruent triangles are equal) OPR = OPQ = 120°/2 = 60° Thus, In  Δ POQ Also, PQO = 90° (Tangent PQ is perpendicular to radius OQ)
PQO + OPQ + POQ = 180° 90° + 60° + POQ = 180° ••• POQ= 180°-150° » POQ = 30° Hence, option 1.
