158 Points
										
Ans: 90
Sol:
Let P(t1, 2at1) & Q(t2, 2at2) be the points on the parabola where line intersects the parabola. Then slope of tangents at P & Q would be:
\frac{1}{t_{1}}, \frac{1}{t_{2}}
Angle between tangents:
\frac{|t_{2}-t_{1}|}{1+t_{1}t_{2}}
Since both points lie on the line, we have
t_{1}^{2}-2t_{1}-1=0
t_{2}^{2}-2t_{2}-1=0
t1, t2are the roots of the equation
t^{2}-2t-1=0
Product of the roots is -1,
t_{1}t_{2}=-1
Angle is 90.
