If angle Q= 80, then R=20
If angle Q= 20, then R= 80
If angle P is the largest angle, then Angle Q and angle R= 50 .
So all 3 choices are possible for Angle R.

An isosceles triangle has two equal angles .
So, there are two possible cases here:

case i) 80° is one of the duplicate angles, in which case there are two angles measuring 80° and the other angle is 20°
So, I and III are possible

case ii) 80° is NOT one of the duplicate angles, in which case one angle is 80° and the other two (duplicate) angles are each 50°
So, II is possible

Answer: E

Since triangle PQR is isosceles, angles P and R could be 80 degrees, and angle Q could be 20 degrees.

On the other hand, if angles Q and P were each 80 degrees, then angle R would be 180 - 2(80) = 20.

Furthermore, angle P could be the vertex angle of 80 degrees, and angle R could be one of the base angles. If that were the case, then angle R would be (180 - 80)/2 = 50.

Answer: E
