The answer is c .

angle a + angle b + angle c = 180

Let us consider angle a as 5x , angle b as 12x and angle c as 13x .

5x+12x+13x = 180
x=6

angle a = 5*6 = 30

Let the angles of the triangle be 5x, 12x and 13x
Sum=5x + 12x + 13x = 30x
30x=180 because sum of interior angles of a triangle must be 180 deg.
x=6
Angle A=5x=30 deg.
Answer C.
