**Answer: The given statement is FALSE.**

**Step-by-step explanation: **We are given **to check whether he following statement is true or false :**

"The sine of an angle in a right triangle is equal to the ratio of the length of the side adjacent to the angle divided by the length of the hypotenuse. "

Let us consider the right-angled triangle ABC as shown in the attached figure below.

With respect to acute angle C, we can see that

**perpendicular, p = AB**

**base, b = BC **

**and**

**hypotenuse, h = AC.**

We know that

**sine of an angle in a right-angled triangle is equal to the ratio of the perpendicular to the base.**

**So, we must have**

**Since AB is the opposite side to angle C, not adjacent, therefore**

**sine of any angle in a right-angled triangle is the ratio of the length of the OPPOSITE SIDE to length of the hypotenuse.**

**Thus, the given statement is FALSE.**
