Answer 12060=60 Sufficient Statement II The Sum of the measure of MKJ and MJK is 120. This basically means MKJ is an equilateral triangle. Hence answer is 60 as shown in statement I D Nowhere it is mentioned that MJ = MK, a prerequisite so that \(\angle{MKJ}=\angle{MJK}=60\) and Statement II be sufficient. Otherwise, \(\angle{MKJ}+\angle{MJK}=120\) when \(\angle{MJK}=50\) and \(\angle{MKJ}=70\) OR \(\angle{MJK}=30\) and \(\angle{MKJ}=90\) Many possibilities exists hence statement II is not sufficient. Should not the answer be A. chetan2u Can you help me understand if am correct.

solution not correct. now I am skeptical of my verbal prep on gmat club.

My bad. I actually inferred wrongly. I thought that variations in angles(MJK or MKJ) would invalidate the statement II as sufficient but actually forgot that points M and J would act as hinges to direct other angles. Sorry to bother you for such pity queries. Thanks

It is simply addition of angles of the triangle, so why would someone get verbal prep into it! Secondly, why is the solution incorrect? Would request you to be more specific, so that everyone can benefit.

Hence answer is 60 as shown in statement I D You cant assume the two angles are equal based on statement (2). Nowhere it is mentioned that MJ = MK, a prerequisite so that \(\angle{MKJ}=\angle{MJK}=60\) and Statement II be sufficient.
