If you extend the line from m to n, it forms a triangle.

The first angle of the triangle is z.
Since, sum of angles in a straight line is 180 degree, the second angle of the triangle is 180-y
The angle on the line n would be 180 - x because the alternate interior angles are supplementary.
Since, sum of angles in a straight line is 180 degree, the third angle of the triangle is x

The angles of the triangle is z,x and 180-y.
Since the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 degree,
z + x + 180 - y = 180
z + x = y(Option D)

We can draw a line (let’s call it line p) through the vertex of angle y such that line p is parallel to both lines m and n. We will see that angle y is split into two angles such that the upper one is equal in measure to angle x, since they are alternate interior angles of two parallel lines cut by a transversal, and the lower one is equal in measure to angle z for the same reason. Thus, y = x + z.

Answer: D
