angle adjacent to \(\angle x = 180- x\) ... (i)

External angle of a triangle = sum of angles on opposite side -->

\(142 = (180-x) + 64\)

solving for x, x = 102 (Choice C)

Since the sum of angles in a straight line is 180,
the angle inside the triangle adjacent to 142 degree is 38 degree.
Also, the third angle in the triangle is 180 - x

180 - x + 38 + 64 = 180(Sum of angles in a triangle is 180 degree)
38 + 64 = 180 - 180 + x
x = 38 + 64 = 102(Option C)
