if the degree measure of an inscribed angle subtending the red arc is 100° = angle at center
and the degree measure of an inscribed angle subtending the blue arc is 210 = angle at centre

y+ 105+50= 180
y= 25

180-x+50+105= 180
x= 155

x-y= 130

hence b

Refer to the attached diagram (screenshot)

Given

1. Subtended angle by Arc (Red) = 100 degrees
2. Subtended angle by Arc (Blue) = 210 degrees

We know that

Angle subtended by an arc at the centre of a circle = 2 * (Angle subtended by the same arc at some other

point on the circumference)

Using this property,

(1) In triangle BPD,

Angle (PBD) = 1/2 * Angle (COD)

= 1/2 * 210

Angle (PBD) = 105 degrees

Now, since an arc subtends equal angle in the same segment of a circle, therefore

Angle (PAC) = Angle (PBD) = 105 degrees

(2) In triangle APC,

Angle (PCA) = 1/2 * Angle (AOB)

= 1/2 * 100

Angle (PCA) = 50 degrees

Now, since an arc subtends equal angle in the same segment of a circle, therefore

Angle (PDB)
= Angle (PCA) = 50 degrees

(3) In triangles BPD,

y + 105 + 50 = 180

y = 25 degrees

Now, on a straight-line BC,

x + y = 180, so

x = 180 -y

x = 180 -25

x = 155 degrees

Therefore,

x – y = 155 – 25

x – y = 130 degrees

Option B (correct)

Hello from the GMAT Club BumpBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).
