Angles of the top most triangle = 40, 180 - 2x, 180 - 2k
Sum of the angles of a triangle = 180

Therefore,

40 + 180 - 2x + 180 - 2k = 180
k + x = 110 - (i)

Coming to the lower triangle,
Sum of angles:
x + k + y = 180

From (i), we know that x + k = 110,
Hence y = 180 - 110 = 70

Correct Option: C

From (180-2k)+(180-2x)+40=180, we get 220-2(x+k)=0, 2(x+k)=220, x+k=110. Since X+k+y=180, if we substitute, from 110+y=180, we know y=70. Hence, the correct answer is C.
