Steps of construction:

Step 1: A ray YZ is drawn.
Step 2: With Y as a centre and any radius, an arc ABC is drawn cutting YZ at C.
Step 3: With C as a centre and the same radius, mark a point B on the arc ABC.
Step 4: With B as a centre and the same radius, mark a point A on the arc ABC.
Step 5: With A and B as centre, draw two arcs intersecting each other with the same radius at X.
Step 6: X and Y are joined and a ray XY making an angle 90° with YZ is formed.

Justification for construction:
We constructed ∠BYZ = 60° and also ∠AYB = 60°.
Thus, ∠AYZ = 120°.
Also, bisector of ∠AYB is constructed such that:
∠AYB = ∠XYA + ∠XYB
⇒ ∠XYB = 1/2∠AYB
⇒ ∠XYB = 1/2×60°
⇒ ∠XYB = 30°
Now,
∠XYZ = ∠BYZ + ∠XYB = 60° + 30° = 90°

2. Construct an angle of 45° at the initial point of a given ray and justify the construction.

Steps of construction:

Step 1: A ray OY is drawn.
Step 2: With O as a centre and any radius, an arc ABC is drawn cutting OY at A.
Step 3: With A as a centre and the same radius, mark a point B on the arc ABC.
Step 4: With B as a centre and the same radius, mark a point C on the arc ABC.
Step 5: With A and B as centre, draw two arcs intersecting each other with the same radius at X.
Step 6: X and Y are joined and a ray making an angle 90° with YZ is formed.
Step 7: With A and E as centres, two arcs are marked intersecting each other at D and the bisector of ∠XOY is drawn.

Justification for construction:
By construction,
∠XOY = 90°
We constructed the bisector of ∠XOY as DOY.
Thus,
∠DOY = 1/2 ∠XOY
∠DOY = 1/2×90° = 45°

5. Construct an equilateral triangle, given its side and justify the construction.

Answer

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/--nfmGpCggUY/VppdD6ttDOI/AAAAAAAAA9g/Nov-QFakotw/s1600/class-9-ncert-maths-ch11-constructions-9.jpg

Steps of constructions:
Step 1: A line segment AB=4 cm is drawn.
Step 2: With A and B as centres, two arcs are made.
Step 4: With D and E as centres, arcs are made to cut the previous arc respectively and forming angle of 60° each.
Step 5: Lines from A and B are extended to meet each other at C.
Thus, ABC is the required triangle formed.

Justification:
By construction,
AB = 4 cm, ∠A = 60° and ∠B = 60°
We know that,
∠A + ∠B + ∠C = 180° (Sum of the angles of a triangle)
⇒ 60° + 60° + ∠C = 180°
⇒ 120° + ∠C = 180°
⇒ ∠C = 60°
BC = CA = 4 cm (Sides opposite to equal angles are equal)
AB = BC = CA = 4 cm
∠A = ∠B = ∠C = 60°
