An easy one..just assign x to Angle-BDC & Angle-BCD..keep on applying the Sum of all angles is 180 rule until you get all the angles in terms of x
You get
-->Angle DAB = Angle DBA = 2x
--> AD = BD

As BD=BC
--> AD=BD=BC=1
As given in B
So B it is

Kudos if I helped..

Look at the diagram below:

As you can see fro the stem we can get that \(\angle{DBA\angle{DAB}=2x\), from which it follows that AD = BD, thus AD = BD = BC.

(1) x = 30. This statement must be insufficient, because we are asked to find the length and all we know are angles. Not sufficient

(2) AD = 1 --> we know that AD = BC, thus BC = 1. Sufficient.

Answer: B.

Hope it's clear.
