If M || N we have

x = 180 - 72

X = 108

In My opinion the answer is D

Since m // n, we know that the angle above x is also 72.

Therefore x+72 = 180 => x = 108

Answer is D

The vertical angle opposite 72 is 72.

That angle and angle x are consecutive interior angles created by parallel lines cut by a transversal. They are supplementary, so 72 + x = 180

x = 108

Answer D
