a=40, b= 140

d,y,w,b=140 and a,c,z,x= 40

so d+w= 140+140= 280 and y+c= 140+40= 180

280-180 = 100 IMO D

Solution


Given:
    • \(l_1\) is parallel to \(l_2\)
    • ∠a = 40

To find:
    • ∠d + ∠w – (∠y + ∠c)

Approach and Working:
    • ∠d = ∠y (alternate angles)
    • ∠a = ∠c = 40 (opposite angles)
    • ∠w = 180 - ∠c = 140 (corresponding angles sum = 180)

Thus, ∠d + ∠w – (∠y + ∠c) = ∠d - ∠y + 140 – 40 = 100

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Answer: D
