The three lines from a triangle.
let the angles of the triangle be e, f, g starting from the point that contains angles x, y, z.
The sum of internal angles of a triangle is 180.

Now, \(x+y+z+d=360\),
Similarly, \(a+b+c+e=360\)
&, \(p+f+n+m=360\)

Adding all the three equations, we get:
\(x+y+z+a+b+c+p+m+n+(d+e+f)=360*3\)
\(d+e+f=180\)
\(this implies, x+y+z+a+b+c+p+m+n=1080-180\)
=900.

Answer: B

a) The sum of exterior angles of a triangle is 360°
So, (y+c+p)+(z+m+a)=360+360=720°
b) The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180°.
So, x+n+b=180°
Sum of the indicated angles=(y+c+p)+(z+m+a)+(x+n+b)=720°+180°=900°

Ans. (B)

Sum of exterior angles of a polygon = 360 deg.
y+c+p=360 (Angle formed by extension of one side and the other side)
Similarly, a+z+m=360
x+b+n=180 (Sum of the angles of the triangle)
Adding the three equations we get the desired result = 900
Answer B.
