|B| = |A+B|
squaring both sides,
|B|^2 = |A|^2 + |B|^2 + 2A.B
|A|^2 + 2A.B = 0
A.B = -|A|^2/2  = -|B|^2/2................(1)
 
Angle b/w A and B  vectors = >
cos@ =  A.B/|A|^2 =   -|A|^2/2*|A|^2 = -1/2 { From eqn. (1)
@ = 120 degree.

If |A+B| and |A| and |B| are the sides of a triangle then the form a equilateral triangle and angles are 60degrees each angle will form 120 degrees according to triangle law.

Dear student,
Please find the answer to your question.
 
|B| = |A+B|

|B|^2 = |A|^2 + |B|^2 + 2A.B
|A|^2 + 2A.B = 0
A.B = -|A|^2/2  = -|B|^2/2................(1)
