If we have the lengths of sides of a triangle, then to determine whether the triangle is acute (all angles less than 90) or right angled (one angle = 90) or obtuse (one angle > 90); we should square all the three lengths of sides.
If square of longest side is smaller than the sum of squares of two smaller sides, its an acute angled triangle
If square of longest side is equal to the sum of squares of two smaller sides, its a right angled triangle
If square of longest side is greater than the sum of squares of two smaller sides, its an obtuse angled triangle

(1) As the lengths are given, we can square and determine the answer. Sufficient (Its obtuse by the way, so one angle will be > 90).

(2) If sum of two angles = 160, both could be less than 90 (80, 80) or one could be greater than 90 (100, 60). Not sufficient.

Hence A answer

1) As length of all three sides are given, a unique triangle can be constructed and hence angles can be determined.
SUFFICIENT.

2) sum of largest and second largest angle = 160.
Now the 2 angles can be 100, 60 or 80,80.
Hence NOT SUFFICIENT.

Answer A
