D.

If we draw another parallel line crossing through point O. We will have two angles now. The lower angle would be equal to b. The upper angle would be b+30.
Hence,
\(a = b + b + 30\)
\(a = 2b + 30\)

a = b is a special case when b = -30 degrees. This means that angle a lies on line l and is the alternate equal angle to angle b.

It is possible that a = b for the case when b = -30 degrees. That would make the angle a same as angle b.
I think I’ll edit my answer.

Hey!

Angles can be be negative. A negative angle means opposite rotation. So, -30 degrees is essentially (360 - 30) degrees ~ 330 degrees.

Hey!

Not necessarily. If you’ll see the case when line k is above line l then a-b-30 < 0.
