If a=40, b=c=140
because sum of angles in a straight line is 180 degree(a+b=180 and a+c=180)

Because m || n, we can say that b=d and c=e(corresponding angles)
Therefore, b+c+d+e = 2(b+c) = \(2(140+140) = 2(280) = 560\)(Option E)

from the figure above it is clear :
b=c

Also b=d ( angle made by a line on parallel lines)

also d=e
combining all three equations
b=c=d=e--------------------- equation (A)


also from the figure a+b=180 =>b=180-40=140
b+c+d+e=4 b (using equation (A)
b+c+d+e=4*140=560

hence (E)

Since angle a is 40, angle b = 180 - 40 = 140, and angle c also = 140. Since angle b is equal to angle d and angle c is equal to angle e (each pair of these angles are corresponding angles), then angles d and e are also each equal to 140.

Thus, b + c + d + e = 140 x 4 = 560.

Answer: E
