    • E.

      90 degree

    Correct Answer
    D. 45 degree
    Explanation
    To draw an octagon around a circle, each angle of the octagon must be equal. Since an octagon has 8 sides, the total angle sum of the octagon is 360 degrees. Dividing 360 degrees by 8 gives us 45 degrees, which is the measure of each angle of the octagon. Therefore, to draw an octagon around a circle, we use a 45-degree angle.

      Oblique View

    • E.

      Perspective view

    Correct Answer
    C. Auxiliary view
    Explanation
    An auxiliary view is a projection view that is used to show a specific feature or details of an object that are not easily visible in the standard orthographic or isometric views. It is typically used when there is a need to show the true size and shape of an inclined or oblique surface. In this image, the view shown is not a standard orthographic or isometric view, but rather a view that provides additional information about the object, making it an auxiliary view.
