angle (2 + 4+ 6) + angle(1+3+5) = 180 +180

The sum of angles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 is 360 (B) IMO.

The crucial moment is to see two triangles with distinct angles ACE & BCF
Sum of the angles of a triangle is 180
Sum of the angles of two triangles - 360

Ans - B

For those who struggle to see the triangles disscused by guys above:

Sum of angles of hexagon = 180 (6-2) = 720

Average of angles = 720/6 = 120. Then the average of each 2 base angles of small triangles will be 180-120=60.
Hence the Sum of (1+2+3+4+5+6) = 60*6 = 360 Answer (B)

We see that angle 1 + angle 3 + angle 5 = 180° since they are three angles of triangle ACE. Similarly, angle 2 + angle 4 + angle 6 = 180° since they are three angles of triangle BDF. Thus, the sum of these 6 angles is 180° + 180° = 360°.

Answer: B
