If we extend RP further down, lets call the extended line PT.
Now, as PQ is parallel to RS, Angle QPT is also 120 degree(corresponding angles)

Since the sum of angles in a straight line is 180 degree,
x + 20 + QPT = 180
x = 180 - 20 - 120 = 40(Option E)

As PQ is parallel to RS angle
RPQ +PRS= 180
so RPQ=60

hence X=40

Let's extend line RP and call the point on the bottom T. Since PQ is parallel to RS and line RP cuts through these parallel lines. Angle TPQ is also 120.

Now we know that 120+20+x=180 => x = 40
