we can see from the figure..
1) kx>90
2) kx<180 as it is one of the angles of a triangle

so 90<kx<180

(1) k = 6
so 90<6*x<180
15<x<30
so yes x<30
sufficient

(2) x > 15
nothing about k
insuff

A

In a triangle sum of three angles is 180

so each three angles has to be less than 180

From 1: if x=30 and k=6 . Then kx=180
an angle of a triangle cant be 180

so x<30

sufficient

From 2: x>15
kx can 30,90

insufficient
Hence A

(1) kx > 90

Since k = 6, so x < 30 and x can only be equal to 30 if kx = 180 which is not the case.
Sufficient


(2) x > 15, but we know nothing about k.
Not sufficient.
