If BC = BD, what is the length of BC?

(1) x = 30

(2) AD = 1

IMO C since
By 1) ABD=equilateral BDC= scalene..insuff

BY 2) insuff

together...suff

This is a 90-60-30 triangle.Hence if AD=1.Then AC=2.
Since AC=BD(angle BAD=angle BDA).Hence AB=BC=1.
Hence only (2) is sufficient.

2
Only 2 would be sufficient.
As it is clear it can be solved by even 2 alone.
Further discussion on this topic would be pointless.

i think the reason why B is the ans is :

angle ABD = angle BCD + angle BDC ( exterier angle = sum of opp angles )

= 2X = angleDAB ( given )

thus AD = BD

but BD = BC

So AD = BC

This is the way and the solution

Just FYI if there were any use of angle here or value of X then also stmt one was not needed as by calculating without any stmt also we can get X = 30 here
