x = 50.

y = 2x = 2*50 = 100

Let label the unknown angle.

a + 60 = 180

a = 120.

Now,

x + 2y + a + z = 360

50 + 100 + 120 + z = 360

z = 90.

The best answer is A.

x=50°
y=2x=100°
Let the 4th angle be w
w=180-60=120°
Since the four sides form a quadrilateral and sum of internal angles of a quadrilateral = 360°
z = 360°-(50°+100°+120°) = 90°
Answer A.
