The line t passes through the lines l and k and forms the angles u, v, x, y, a, b, c, and d. Is line l parallel to line k?

(1) x = u
(2) u = a

Option B

From st1 we can conclude lines t and l are perpendicular. However there’s no info about line l’s relation with line k. Hence insufficient
From st2 we can conclude that line t is perpendicular to line l and line k. When a line is perpendicular to two lines the two lines are parallel. Hence sufficient.

(1) we can deduce that line t is perpendicular to line l, however no information about k
(2) u can be equal to a in multiple cases including situation when l and k are not parallel
(1)+(2)
x=u=a hence l is parallel to k
