if a=b, then two lines intersecting both line 'a' and line 'b', must be parallel. If two lines are parallel then alternate interior angles sum is 180. Hence statement 1 is sufficient.
While second statement 2 is not sufficient because, it didn't mention whether two lines intersection both line 'a' and line 'b', are parallel or not.

Statement 1 can be drawn as given below.

As evident, three angles of a quadrilateral are known by the information. Hence, finding 4th one, y, is easy. Hence, sufficient.

Statement 2 can be better drawn as below.

Being a parallel to b does not mean the other two lines are parallel. By the information, only two supplementary angles are known created by a straight line passing through two different parallel lines.

However, angle formed by any other line could not be find with this information. Hence, insufficient.

So, answer will be A.
