    @AravindG: <RBP is not 90 degrees since AB is not a diameter

    RP is the angle bisector of <APB.

    i know now, <BAC=QBP=h (<s in alt segment.) therefore, <BQR=h+k (ext. angle of triangle) is it?

    P lies out side the circle, your logic is flawed.

    Had P been any point on the circumference, then that'd been equal,
