In the fi…gure, what is the value of y?

(1) \(y = 2x\)
(2) Angle DCA = 30

If y = 2x, doesn't it mean that triangle ABC is inscribed in a circle? Angle ABC would be in the center, and angle ABC would be an inscribed angle.

I still don't understand why the answer is not C.

Please don't assume things by yourself. That's the worst thing one can do on a GMAT. What you see can be misleading. Don't let it.
Given:
a. Y=2x => Nothing. Because D can be any where within the triangle. One such point is where you said - circle scenario. Remember in circle scenario the radius are equal. Here, you cannot assume that. Hence, Insuff.
b. angle DCA = 30. Again here, since we don't know AD=DC, or if DC is angular bisector. Therefore, insuff.
c. Together, still insuff because we still don't know value of angle DAC.


Answer E.

All triangles can be inscribed in a circle, it doesn't follow that ABC is in the centre.
