I can solve this problem by using the concept: two lines are parallel to each other when swept between them is 180 degree. What's the easiest way to solve this problem, expert? Thanks...

This is my concept to solve this problem.
bring all the chords together as if they will originate from center. sum of angles = 360
now for two chords to be parallel, the angle between must be 180 degrees.
Angle between j and a = 30 Angle between a and b = 40 Angle between b and c = 40 Angle between c and d = 35 Angle between d and e = 35 summing we get 180 degrees, so J and E are parallel to each other, as angle between them is 180

Knowing that the angles between the 2 chords have to sum to 180 degrees, my shortcut was to dismiss any pair of chords with a "dangling" 32 degrees angle in between. Because to sum up to 180 which is a mutiple of 10, you need and 8 to add to the 2 from the 32. If that 8 is missing, no way for the angles to sum and round to 180. So I quickly eliminated options A, B and C.
