Beautiful question.

I would like to take this up.

Firstly, let’s join AC.

Now, In triangle ABC,
Side BC > Side AB
Thus, Angle CAB > angle BCA ...........(1)

——Cause Angle opposite to a larger side is larger.——

In triangle ADC,
Side CD > Side AD
Thus, Angle CAD > angle ACD ..........(2)

From (1) & (2)
Angle CAB + Angle CAD > angle BCA + angle ACD
i.e. Angle A > Angle C

Following the same logic, we construct BD and prove that
Angle B > angle D.

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

Kudos please if you liked the answer

The image is of quadrilateral which has two lines parallel to each other.

Option A, D and E are completely irrelevant coz there is no relation that those angles can be equal.

In between option B and C, B can be logically correct.

Hi smita123,
Can you clarify, which two lines are you considering parallel to one another and how?
