Given :

AB = OC BOA = ?

Stmt 1 :

COD = 60 BOC is an isoceles triangle

OBC = 0CB = 60

AB0 = 180 -60 = 120

ABO is an isoceles triangle.

BAO = 30 .Sufficient.

Stmt 2:

Similarly BCO = 40.

BOC is an isoceles triangle OBC = 40

ABO = 140.

BAO = 20.

Sufficient.

I am sorry but I didn't understand why OBC = 0CB = 60 in the first statement. We don't know the angle BOC. Could pls explain that. Although I agree with the answer D

My expaination of the first statement takes more time:
Let's take OBC = 0CB=x and BAO=BOA=y
We have a system of two equations:
2x=180-(180-60-y)
x=180-(180-2y)

2x=60+y
x=2y

3y=60
y=20

tkarthi4u, how did you come up with "OBC = 0CB = 60"?
Isoceles triangle yes but the degree could be 45 as well?

How do you know that OCB = OBC ?
