The only thing that we can figure out from this figure is :
2x + y + 40 = 180 or 2x + y = 140(because the sum of angles in a straight line is 180 degree)

Though line m || n, we cannot say anything about x and y from that.
Also, we could have several combinations for values of x and y.
If x is 30, then y is 80
If x is 40, then y is 60
We cannot get a fixed value for y. Hence, Option E should be the answer.

2x+y = 140

There is only one equation and two unknown variables so it will result in multiple cases as no other information of x and y can be

Bunuel : Does GMAT ever give any questions with option "can not be determined" in PS???

We see that 40 + x + y + x = 180 or 2x + y = 140. However, since we don’t know the value of x, we can’t determine the value of y.

Answer: E
