Let the point on AB making 100 deg be P, the point on CD making 30 deg be Q and the point in the middle making angle (x+10) deg be R.

Extending the 30 deg angle line QR to cut AB at some point E.

In triangle PRE angle RPE is 180-100=80 deg.

And ang QEP is 30 deg.
Transversal between parallel lines.
Interior opposite angles property.

So now for triangle PRE, angle PRQ is an external angle whose sum should be equal to sum of interior opposite angles.
Therefore, x+10 = 30+80
x = 100.

Hi,

It is a popular concept in parallel lines.

Given, AB and CD are parallel to each other.

Lets draw line parallel to these lines (as given in the figure attached below) passing through point O,

Using alternate interior angles,

x+10 = 80+30

x = 110 -10

x = 100.

So the answer is C.
