**1. IPMAT (I) 2019 QASA | Geometry**

The sum of the interior angles of a convex n-sided polygon is less than 2019°. The maximum possible value of n is

Answer: 13

**Explanation** :

The sum of the interior angles of a convex n-sided polygon is less than 2019°. The maximum possible value of n is

Sum of interior angles of n-sided convex polygon is given by the formula (n - 2) × 180°

⇒ (n - 2) × 180° < 2019°

⇒ (n - 2) < 2019/180

⇒ (n - 2) < 11.22

⇒ n < 13.22

∴ Highest possible value of n is 13. [n has to be an integer.]

Hence, 13.
