suppose

PRQ = x
PQR = y
QPR = z
PRS = a

then

we know a = y + z and we've to find out a-y

from 1) z = 30
so a-y = 30 --> suff

from 2) x+y = 30

a+x = 180
a+ 30 - y = 180
a-y = 30 ---> suff

D can be worked out in one of the interpretation of the question. In another interpretation it could be tricky. See attached illustration for explanation. Thanks.

Thank you both for taking the time. I keep forgetting the rule where the two opposite angles from the adjacent angle of target equals the target angle.

*cheers!*
