Where did you see this problem? It looks extremely difficult.
I hope someone post the answer and the explanation. I am curious now.

a. angle(OAC)= OAB
b. angle( OAB)=AO'O
c. angle (AO'B)=AOB


Here,

O'A=OO'=O'B (radiuses)

Also triangles AOO' and BOO' are identical.

so angle O'AO=AOO'=OBO'=BOO' = x

So OO'A = OO'B = 180-2x

angle O'AC=90 (tangent + radius)

So OAB= 90-x

Let AB and OO' intersect at E.

In triangle OAE, angle OEA=90.
Since <EOA = x, angle OAE=OAB=90-x

so OAB=OAC.
