Approach:

Given: AB = AC, outer angle on C = 160 deg

- So angle BCD = 80 deg

Further Given: CB = CD, So angle BDC and CBD be 50 deg each.

- So angle BDA or x = 180 - 50 = 130 deg

Option D!

A + 160 = 180
--> A = 20 deg

Since ABC is an isosceles triangle ∠ABC = ∠BCA = Y (assume)
--> A + B + C = 180
--> 2Y = 160
--> Y = 80 deg

Since triangle CBD is isosceles,
∠DBC = ∠BDC = Z
--> Z + Z + 80 = 180
--> 2Z = 100
--> Z = 50

At point D, X + Z = 180
--> X = 180 - 50 = 130 deg

Option D
