IMO :B
statement1: Dont know what angle is equal to what.insuff
=> <ADB + 2x=180 (Linear Pair)
=> x=40.
=><DBC=180-80-80=20. Sufficient.

Waiting for OA

IMO answer should be "B". Awaiting OA

Statement 1: Even without knowing the fact given in statement 1, we can conclude that ABD=x. Thus this point is insufficient

Statement 2: 100=2x + DBC; also DBC=180-4x
=>2x=80 =>x=40; therefore, DBC=20. This is sufficient

The interior angles of a triangle sum to 180.
An isosceles triangle has 2 equal angles that are equal sides.
Since $$DBC = 180 - (2x+2x)$$, all we need to do is find the value for $$x$$.

(1) Triangle ABD is isosceles. So, AB = BD or AB = AD, since we don't know which one we cannot find DBC, this is insufficient.

(2) Angle ADB = 100. Angles ADB + BDC = 180, so 100 + 2x = 180, 2x = 180 - 100, x = 40. To find DBC, this is sufficient.

IMO : B
(1) We don't know whether AB = BD or AB = AD
(2) We certainly know AB = BD => ADB = 100 = DBC + DCB = 180 - 2.2x + 2x => We can calculate x hence we will know DBC angle
