Since angles on a line must add to 180°, we can see that there are three 30° angles in our diagram...

Next, let's focus on the BLUE triangle.

Since angles in a triangle must add to 180° (and since we already have two angles measuring 30° each),

the third angle must be 120°Next, we have two angles sharing the same GREEN line.

Since angles on a line must add to 180°, we can see that the other angle must be 60°

Finally, we can focus on the RED triangle.

Since angles in a triangle must add to 180° (and since we already have two angles measuring 30° and 60°),

the third angle (x) must be 90°Answer: D

Cheers,
