Angle across a point is 360 degree.

Since, there are 18 straight threads that meet at the center,
the average of the 18 non-overlapping angles at the center
is given by \(\frac{360}{18} = 20(Option B)\)

We see that 18 angles make up a circle or 360 degrees. Thus, the average of each angle is 360/18 = 20 degrees.

Answer: B

18 straight threads make a total of 360 degree angle.
Average = 360/18 = 20 ..

At first question looks a bit confusing but it is relatively easy problem...

Answer B
