x+(y-z)=180
120+100-z=180
z=40

You know supplementary angles add up to 180 degree when they lie on the same side of a straight line.

Refer the diagram, AOB is a straight line.Hence
\(\angle{AOB}+\angle{COB}=180\)
Or, \(x+(y-z)=180\) (Since \(\angle{COB}+z=y\))
Or, \(z=x+y-180=100+120-180\)
Or, \(z=40\)

Ans. (B)

Supplementary Angles -> x + (y-z) = 180 --> 100 + (120 - z) = 180 --> z = 40.

Hi Bunuel
I couldn't understand why C is the OA.
Can you please check it?

Thank you.

This is not 600-700. This is luckily 500-600, but I would say it is 300-500.
Please don't fool us :)
It's hurting me to have a good score here and then in the CATs I suck..
