As the opposite sides(e.g. AD & DC) of a parallelogram are parallel, the angles (e.g. x & y) created by a third side between them will always sum to 180.

Only I satisfies this condition: 50 + 130 = 180.

Ans: A.

As it is provided in the question, ABCD is a parallelogram, the opposite sides must be equal.
Hence, A is the correct answer.

parallelogram:
Opposite sides should be equal. So answer must be A

another property: sum of the angles should be 360.

For ABCD to be a parallelogram, not only must the sum of the angle measures be 360 degrees (i.e., w + x + y + z = 360), but also the opposite angles must be equal (i.e., w = y and x = z). Scanning the Roman numerals, we see that II and III do not have equal opposite angles. Thus, we are left with showing whether the numbers in Roman numeral I sum to 360. Since 50 + 130 + 50 + 130 = 360, only Roman numeral I is correct.

Answer: A

A is my answer.

The logic is the four angles must add to 360. In addition, it's a parallelogram. So angle w=y and x=z. Using those two properties, I eliminated II and III.

Since ABCD is a parallelogram => (x + y + z + w = 360 degrees) and (x= z; y = w)

Only I satisfies both conditions. Hence the answer is A.
