As m and n add upto 110 degrees, the third angle in the triangle must be 70 degrees.

We can see the the angle just above this is a vertical angle, so it must also be 70 degrees. So now we know the two angles next to angles O and P (let's call them O' and P') add upto 110 degrees. Also note that all angles making up a straight line must add upto 180 degrees. So, O + O' and P + P' must each add upto 180 degrees--all four add upto 360 degrees. Know this and know that O' + P' add upto 110 yields O + P = 250 degrees.

let r be the point of intersection of two lines.
since, m+n= 110
therefore r= 180-110
r=70
Therefore degree of opposite angle= 70
In triangle ORP,
angle POR = 180-o
angle OPR = 180-p
angle ORP = 70

180-o+180-p+70=180
-o-p=-250
o+p=250

Ans = C

PS :- I have used O and P as vertices of triangle just for the sake of explanation.

In the figure below, a=b
a=180-(m+n) = 180-110 = 70
therefore b= 70
O = b+ 180-P

O+P= b+180 = 70+180 = 250

As vertically opposite angles are same,$$\angle{ACB} = 70^{\circ}$$

Sum of remaining angles would also be the same

180-o + 180-p = 110

o+p = 360-110 = 250

Well, since the opposites of O and P add up to 110, and these four angles together must measure up to 180+180=360, you just substract 110 from 360 to get 250.
