The four lines form a quadrilateral
The two angles that lie of the same straight line as the angles given(135 and 60)
are \(180 - 135 = 45\) and \(180 - 60 = 120\) respectively.
The other two angles in the quadrilateral are 180 - x and 180 - y

The sum of the angles in a quadrilateral is 360 degree.

180 - x + 180 - y + 120 + 45 = 360
x+y = 165 degree(Option C)

In the given quadrilateral, sum of interior angles =180(n-2)=180x2=360
Sum of interior angles are (180-x)+(180-y)+(180-135)+(180-60)
=(180-x)+(180-y)+45+120=360
x+y=165
Answer C

Since the exterior angles of any polygon must sum to 360 degrees, we have:

x + y + 60 + 135 = 360

x + y = 165

Answer: C
