Very tricky, I attached a color coded chart for it with an explanation of the exterior angle theorem .

Are we not assuming ABC to be a straight line. This is not specified anywhere. If ABC is not a straight line then exterior angle theorem is invalid for triangle ABO

OFFICIAL GUIDE:

Problem Solving
Figures: All figures accompanying problem solving questions are intended to provide information useful in solving the problems. Figures are drawn as accurately as possible. Exceptions will be clearly noted. Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight. The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero. All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

Data Sufficiency:
Figures:
• Figures conform to the information given in the question, but will not necessarily conform to the additional information given in statements (1) and (2).
• Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight.
• The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero.
• All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

So,∠BAO+∠ACO=2∗∠BAO+∠BOA=3∗∠BAO=60º


I just don't get this step in the first statement. Please help.

Not sure what to add to the below.

(1) The degree measure of angle COD is 60º:

\(\angle BAO +\angle ACO = \angle COD = 60º\) degrees (Using exterior angle theorem)

\(\angle ACO = \angle CBO = 2* \angle BAO\)

\(So, \angle BAO + \angle ACO = 2* \angle BAO + \angle BOA = 3* \angle BAO = 60º\)

\(\angle BAO = 20º\).

In the figure shown, point O is the center of the semicircle and points B, C, D lie on the semicircle. If the length of line segment AB is equal to the length of line segment OC, what is the degree measure of angle BAO ?

(1) The degree measure of angle COD is 60º.
(2) The degree measure of angle BCO is 40º.

Refer to Attached Picture:
We know that O is the center of the circle;
From that statement, we can infer that OB = OC, so their angles are also equal (a°)
We know that AB = OB, so their angles are also equal (c°).
In the picture, there are 5 angles to refer to (angle a°, b°, c°, d°, and e°). From that, we can infer:
c° + b° + e° = 180
a° + a° + b° = 180
c° + c° + d° = 180
a° + d° = 180
a° + a° = e° (exterior angle theory)
We have 5 unique equations so if we know one of those values, we can answer the prompt!

(1) The degree measure of angle COD is 60º.
Sufficient
(2) The degree measure of angle BCO is 40º.
Sufficient

The answer is D!!
