You know that BO=OC=AB => angle OCB = angle OBC = ~

Also AB=OB => angle BOA = angle BAO = $ [YOu are asked theta]

1) extend line BO so that you can form exterior angle:
2~ = exterior angle
2~ = $ + 60 ----I

Now look at triangle ABO:
2$ + 180-~ = 180
~ = 2$----II
solve I and II
$ = 20
A is good.

2) ~=40
Look at triangle ABO:
2$ + 180-40 = 180
$ = 20
B is good.

IMO D.

You know that BO = OC = AB
Hence Triangles ABO AND OBC are isosceles
This means angles OBC = BCO and BAO = BOA

S2. says BCO = 40 degrees
Hence OBC = 40 degrees and two interior angles of a triange are equal to the sum of the interior angles
This means BAO+BOA = 40 and since they are equal BAO - 20 degrees

S2. COD = 60
Let angle BAO = x
Hence CAO + ACO = 60 degrees (sum of interior angles = exterior angles)
BOC = 180 - (60-x) - (60-x) = 60+2x
BOA = 180 -(60-2x) - 60 = 60-2x

x = 60-2x
x = 20
