In the diagram below, what is the measure of the non-reflex angle formed by extending the lines BD and CE? A reflex angle is one whose measure is greater than 180° but less than 360°

(1) x = y
(2) x + y = 40°

First of all, by extending the two lines we will draw a concave quadrilateral. If we have the three angles, we can find the third angle.

Statement 1: We have two equal angles and the third angle we are trying to find but we don't know their values. So, this statement is insufficient.
Statement 2: We have all the required information to answer the question. x+y+60+z=360. 40+60+z=360 z=260 So the angle we are interested is 100 degrees.

300-(x+y) is the final measure of the angle. So Statement 2 is sufficient

We join the points B and C and form a triangle ABC.
statement 1: x=y , which means angle DBE and Angle ECB will also be equal. Therefore x+y+angle DBE+angle ECB= 120.
Which means 2x+2*angle DBE=120.
Therefore x+angle DBE =60 degrees.
This tells that ABC is an equilateral triangle.
So I feel now we can find the requisite angle.

Sufficient.

So imo D should e the answer.

* Experts kindly correct if I am wrong.
