Right Triangle

This is an MCQ-based quiz for GRE on the topic of the Right Triangle.

A triangle in which one of the interior angles is 90° is called a right triangle. The longest side of the right triangle, which is also the side opposite the right angle, is the hypotenuse and the two arms of the right angle are the height and the base.
