Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

catangent written in short as cot is obtained by 1/tan(x) where x is the angle.Therefor

tan A=opposite/adjacent =10/24 simplify by dividing by 2 gives us =5/12

tan B=opposite/adjacent = 24/10 simplify by dividing by 2 gives us 12/5

To get cot A=1/tan A  which gives us 12/5

cot B=1/tan B which gives us 5/12

Hence your correct answer is C , cot A=12/5; cot B=5/12



Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Hi.I think this addition information may be of importance when solving trigonometric problems.

Assume you have a right angled triangle with sides a,b and c respectively,

sin A = opposite / hypotenuse = a / c

cos A = adjacent / hypotenuse = b / c

tan A = opposite / adjacent = a / b

csc A = hypotenuse / opposite = c / a

sec A = hypotenuse / adjacent = c / b

cot A = adjacent / opposite = b / a

Kind regards and always feel free to ask for clarifications
