IMO, answer should be B (2 angles).
Here is my 2 cents

The reason the answer is E is because theoretically you could know all 8 angles of line n, and still know none of the angles of line o. Therefore to guarantee that we know all 16 angles we must have at least one angle on each transversal, the minimum, therefore, is 9.

Damn. I was too focused on the Geometry part that I completely overlooked that it was also a Min-Max question.

Need more attention to detail.

I am not convinced with the OA. If the question were, "What is the number of angles that would need to be provided in order to guarantee that all 16 angles could be determined from the information provided?" then the answer would be 9. But when you ask for the minimum number of angles, it has to be 2.
