I will go for E.

As per the diagram, BDC is an isosceles triangle. However, it is not known what ABD is.

Pls find it out from OG11, page 157, Question 117

In that case.. answer would be A.

Yeah, we are missing a crucial element of the question here.

Agree with the above ( A ... if angle BAD is x)

say ABD=y

x+y+180-2x=180
--> x=y = ABD

So ABD isosceles triangle
thus AD= BD=6
BDC is isoceles triangle..
so BD=BC=6

SUFFICIENT.
