b for me --60 degrees

Consider the intersection of line AC and BD as O. Angle ADB should be equal to angle BCA (inscribed angles)

So DAB = 180 - angle ADB - angle DBA = 180 - 70 - 50 = 60 degrees

OA??

In the Figure
Given - DBA = 50
BCA = 70

Now angle BCA = BDA
BDA = 70

In triangle ADB
BDA + DBA + DAB = 180
Hence DAB = 60

angle(DBA)=50 and angle(BCA)=70

Using Property Angle(BCA) = Angle (BDA) =70
angle DAB= 180-70-50=60

I do not understand how the OA is reached. Do we have to assume that because the angles look the same in the picture that they are the same value? We are not given any details in the question.

No, don't assume values from similar appearance. :-)

The posters are relying on properties of circles and inscribed angles, about which you can read in the excellent GMATCLUB Math Book. I've linked to the particular section on circles for you, below.

The language can be very technical at times. If you get stuck, check other sites with a search engine and search terms "incribed angle circles." (No quotation marks. They're for clarity in my sentence.)

Hope it helps.
