(d);
The sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than third side and their difference is less than third side.
∴ a+4>10
⇒a>10-4
⇒a>6
Again, a-4<10
⇒a<14

∴6<a<14

b);
The sum of two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side.
(3, 5, 6) and (2, 5, 6)

(a);
2x+3x+5x=180°-45°=135°
⇒10x=135°
⇒x=135/10=27/2
∴ Largest angle
=5x+15°=(5×27/2)^°+15°
(135+30)/2=(165°)/2
∴180°=π radian

∴(165°)/2=π/180×165/2=11π/24 radian
