Pandey Ji we need angle A

angle A = angle D = 44 (alternate angle)

or

angle ABC = angle DEC (alternate angle) = 110
angle D = 44
angle ECD = 180 -(110+44) = 26 = angle ACB (vertically opposite)
angle A = 180-(110+26) = 44

Angle B = Angle E = 110

Angle D = 40% of 110 = 44

Angle C = 180 - ( 110 + 44 ) = 26

Angle A = 180 - ( 110 + 26 ) = 44

Hence, C.

Since we have some parallel lines, there are several pairs of equal angles in this diagram.
Image

First of all, ∠E = ∠B. So, ∠E = 110°
Image

Next, since ∠D = 40% of ∠E, we now know that ∠D = 40% of 110%
So, ∠D = 44%
Image

Finally, ∠A = ∠D. So, ∠A = 44°

Answer: D
