a) diagram https://ibb.co/v1BxzrW

b) BC = BF - AE = 0.5m

And AC = 2m

So, tan BAC = BC/AC = 0.5/2

or <BAC = tan^-1 (0.5/2) = 14.04 degrees

c) CD = AE- DF = 0.2m

AC = 2m

So, tan DAC = CD /AC = 0.2/2

or <DAC = tan^-1 (0.2/2) = 5.7 degrees

d) diagram: https://ibb.co/d66XYJ8

BC = 0.5 and CD = 0.2 and AC=1

tan BAC = BC/AC = 0.5

<BAC = tan^-1 (0.5) = 26.57 degrees

tan DAC = CD/AC = 0.2

<DAC = tan^-1(0.2) = 11.31 degrees

So the sweeping angle = <BAC + <DAC = 26.57+11.31 = 37.88 degrees
