A bridge, in the shape of straight path, across a river, makes an angle of 60 with the width of

the river. If the length of the bridge is 100 metres, then the width of the river is

(A) 50 m (B) 173.2 m (C) 43.3 m (D) 100 m

let AB be the width of the river and AC be the bridge.

in the triangle ABC,

hence the width of the river is 50 m.
