We know that in a triangle,angle corresponding to greater side is greater,hence angle(CAB>ACB>ABC) ---------(i)
Also we know that since vertically opposite angles are equal
angle(CAB=x)
angle(ACB=y)
angle(ABC=z) ----------------(ii)
From equation (i) & (ii)
x>y>z
Hence,answer should be A

Greater the side = Greater the Angle facing it

∠BAC = x ; ∠ACB =y & ∠ABC = z

Further, we have BC > AB > AC : x > y > z ; Answer must be (A)

We see that the measures of the interior angles of the triangle are angle A = x, angle B = z and angle C = y.

We see that since angle A is opposite the longest side, it’s the largest angle; since angle C is opposite the second longest side, it's the second largest angle; and, since angle B is opposite the shortest side, it’s the smallest angle.

Thus, x > y > z.

Answer: A
