Assuming angle ABC is 55 the answer will be 90+(180-55)=215

Since both statements would be required to measure the angle BCD

Let $$\angle BCD = x$$

Using statement 1:

From the new diagram attached, you can extend BC to intersect DE at a new point, say F.
The angle formed, i.e $$\angle CFD = \angle ABC = y$$

In triangle CFD, $$\angle CDF = 90 \angle FCD = 180 -x$$
180 - x + y + 90 = 180
x-y = 90

Hence 1 is insufficient.

Statement 2 gives us $$\angle ABC$$ but we dont know if AB and DE are ||

Using 1 and 2, we can find $$\angle BCD = 180 - 35 = 145$$
