    Tip: Here, we need to think the opposite of what is written.

    What do you think? In-center of a Triangle: It is the point forming the origin of a circle inscribed inside the triangle. Like the centroid, the incenter is always inside the triangle. It is constructed by taking the intersection of the angle bisectors of the three vertices of the triangle.

    The incenter is not always equidistant from all vertices. It is always inside it and the incenter is where all of the bisectors of the angles of the triangle meet. B is not true

    But the incenter isn''t always in the triangle

    Why A? It's not equidistant from all vertices

    So, that's why it's not A.

    sometimes it is.... In an obtuse triangle, isn't the incenter outside the triangle?

    Like the centroid, the incenter is always inside the triangle

    Am I getting It confused with Circumcenter?
