Based on the info supplied:
<CBD = 180-4x
<ABC = 180-3x
<ABD = <ABC - <CBD = 180-3x-180+4x = x
Hence, BC = BD = AD
(1) alone is sufficient.
(2) just gives the angle and not the side length. There could be many triangles which follow the description. Hence, (2) is not enough.

AGREE WITH A.

2X = X + ANGLE ABD.
ANGLE ABD = X
NOW AD = BD AND BD = BC.

2: X = 36 BUT NO LENGTH. SO INSUFF..

A

the image shows that both triangles, ABD and BDC are isosceles. statment 1 gives the length of AD=6.
so BC will also be 6

in this triangle
DBA is an isoceles triangle=> AD=BD
BDC is also isoceles triangle=> BD=BC
Hence A is the best choice
