Sum of Interior Angles of a polygon is $$180(n-2)$$ where $$n$$ is the number of sides (so is the number of angles).

So the sum of the interior angles of quadrilateral is 180*2=360. Look at the diagram below:

According to above: (180-x)+(180-y)+(180-z)+w=360 --> x+y=180+w-z, so all we need to know is the values of w and z.

(1) w=95. Not sufficient.
(2) z=125. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Sufficient.
