If triangle ABC is an isosceles triangle, what is ∠ABC?

(1) ∠CAB = 45 degrees. The sum of the remaining two angles is 180-45=135 degrees. Triangle ABC can be 45-45-90 right isosceles triangle OR 67.5-67.5-45 isosceles triangle. Angle B can be 45, 90, or 67.5 degrees. Not sufficient.

(2) ∠BCA = 90 degrees. This statement says that we have 45-45-90 isosceles right triangle, where C=90 degrees, therefore the remaining two angles must be 45 degrees each. Sufficient.

Hope it's clear.
