Let point A be the position of summit of the mountain and B being its foot.Let C be the original position of observer and D, the final position after ascending 1000 metres.Let DN and DM be perpendiculars to BC and AB respectively.Thus,
CD = 1000 m
∠DCN = 30⁰
and, ∠ADM = 60⁰
∠ACB = 45⁰ = ∠ACB
∠DAM = 30°
⇒ ∠DCA = 15° , ∠DAC = 15°
⇒ ∠DCA = ∠DAC
⇒AD=CD = 1000 m
now,
In right Δ DCN
sin 30° = DN/CD
⇒1/2 = DN/1000
⇒ DN = 500 m
And, In right Δ ADM
sin 60° = AM/AD
⇒ √3/2 = AM/1000
⇒AM = 500 √3 = 500 × 1.732 = 866
⇒AM = 866 m
TOTAL HEIGHT (AB) = BM + AM = DN + AM = 500 + 866 = 1366 m = 1.36.6 KM

INDEX = / = UPON MEANS DIVIDE

oh srry its option
THERE IS ICON LIKE KING HELMET
IN GOLDEN COLOR
actually ur ans is wrong!
sorry betterluck nxt time!!!
