According to the properties of triangle, angle ACD = 40 + B i.e. angle ACD is definitely more than 40.

To find exact degree of angle ACD, we need either the value of B, or the value of C, which isn't provided in the question.

Also, both 140 & 100 are values which hold true for angle ACD.

So correct Answer is D) more than 40

Draw a line parallel to the straight line touching the point A. If A is at one end of the line and F marks the other end, angle ACD = angle FAC (as the two straight line will then be parallel and alternate angles of line AC are equal in measure). Even if you tilt the line AC to vary the angle ACB, the angle ACD = angle FAC will always be more than 40 degree.

Angle ACD is an Exterior Angle of a triangle and the exterior and property of a triangle is as mentioned below.

"An exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the opposite interior angles"

hence
Angle ACD = 40º + Angle ABC
i.e. Angle ACD must be greater than 40

Answer: option D
