Since CD is the bisector of angle ACB, Angle DCB = 20 degree

The third angle in the triangle DCB is 180 - (20 + 90) = 70

Since the sum of angles in a straight line is 180, the angle CDA = 110
Now, x + 20 + 110 = 180(the sum of three angle is a triangle is 180)

Therefore, the value of x is 50(Option E)

Taking triangle ABC as a whole we can see that

x + 2*20 + 90 = 180 ( Since CD is the bisector of angle C )

hence, x = 50

Option E is correct
