Precisely as mentioned in the example; Pair of angles that sum to 90^{\circ} is called complementary. Pair of angles that sum to 180^{\circ} are called supplementary.

e.g.
\angle{a}=45^{\circ}
What will be its complementary angle: Clearly 90-45=45^{\circ}

\angle{a}=1^{\circ}
What will be its complementary angle: Clearly 90-1=89^{\circ}

\angle{a}=120^{\circ}
What will be its supplementary angle: Clearly 180-120=60^{\circ}

\angle{a}=1^{\circ}
What will be its supplementary angle: Clearly 180-1=179^{\circ}

; For this figure;
a and b are complementary angles;
Means a+b=90;

e+d will also be 90(complementary). If two lines intersect each other the opposite angles will always be equal.
In this figure; "e+d" is the opposite to "a+b"

a+e will also be complementary. (a+b is complementary; and e=b; opposite angles)
Likewise
b+d will also be complementary. (b+a is complementary; and a=d; opposite angles)
