In the figure above, if angle AQR = 145°
Since in the straight line, angle AQR + BQR = 180°
Therefore, Angle BQR = 180 - 145 = 35

Similarly, we know that angle BQP = 122°,
Since in the straight line, angle AQP + BQP = 180°
Therefore, Angle BQP = 180 - 122 = 58

The degree measure of angle PQR + BQP + BQR = 180(since angle in a straight line is 180 degree)
Therefore, PQR = 180 - (35+58) = 180 - 93 = 87(Option A)

AQR = 145 => BQR = 180-145 = 35
BQP = 122 => AQP = 180-122 = 58
PQR+BQR+AQP = 180
PQR = 180-35-58 = 87
A

Ans : a

AQR and BQR are supplementary . (sum up to 180 )

Thus BQR = 180-145 = 35

Similarly AQP = 180-122 = 58

AQP+PQR+BQR = 180 . Thus putting the values PQR = 87
