Angle EAB= 180 - (Angle DAE + Angle ADE
Angle EAB= 180 - (55+60)
Angle EAB= 65 (Property of a Quad.)

Angle EAB = Angle FAB = 65

Angle FAB + Angle AFB + Angle ABF = 180
65+40+ Angle ABF =180
Angle AFB= 180-105
Angle AFB=75

Hence answer is (A)

As per the figure AB is parellel to DC then angle bac will be 65 degree.
Then in triangle BAF angle B will be 75 degree

Since AB || CD, then angle ABC = angle ECF. So angle ECF = x. We see that angle AED = 180 - 55 - 60 = 65, and since angles AED and CEF are vertical angles, angle CEF = 65. Therefore, using triangle CEF, we have:

x + 65 + 40 = 180

x + 105 = 180

x = 75

Answer: A
