Explanation:
In structural design a structure is composed of triangles that are interconnecting. A truss is one of the major types of enginnering structures and is especially used in the design of bridges and buildings. Trusses are designed to support loads, such as the weight of people. A truss is exclusively made of long, straight members connected by joints at the end of each member.
This is a single repeating triangle in a truss system.

Q2: In above triangle, what is the length of BC?
(a) 5 ft
(b) 6 ft
(c) 8 ft
(d) 4√3ft
Ans: (b)
Explanation: In right ΔABC,
Q3: If sin A = sin C, what will be the length of BC?
(a) 2 ft
(b) 4 ft
(c) 8 ft
(d) 4√2 ft
Ans: (b)
Explanation: Given, sinA = sinC
In right ΔABC
Q4: If sin(A + B) = 1/√2 and cos(A − B) = √3/2, 0^{∘} < A + B ≤ 90^{∘}, A > B then ∠A is:
(a) 45^{∘}
(b) 37.5^{∘}
(c) 32.5^{∘}
(d) 35^{∘}
Ans: (b)
Explanation:
Q5: If the length of AB doubles what will happen to the Length of AC?
(a) remains same
(b) doubles the original lengthy
(c) become three times the original length
(d) become half of the original length
Ans: (b)
Explanation: Given AB = 2 × 4 = 8ft
So, AC doubles the original length.
Soniya and her father went to meet her friend Ruhi for a party. When they reached Ruhi's place, Soniya saw the roof of the house, which is triangular in shape. She imagined the dimensions of the roof as given in the figure.
Based on the above information, give the answer of the following questions:

Explanation:
Q5: Find the value of tan^{2}C + tan^{2}A.
(a) 0
(b) 1
(c) 2
(d) 1/2
Ans: (c)
Explanation: tanC = 1, tanA = tan45^{∘} = 1 ⇒ tan^{2}C + tan^{2}A = 1 + 1 = 2.
