    I made a careless mistake. 🙁 The answer is A.

    The answer is A only if the 2 lines are parallel. Because:

    y = 75
    x = 190 – 75 = 105

    BUT if the lines are not parallel, the answer is D.

    x =180 – 75 = 105

    so x>y

    The answer is A

    Ans is C.
    y+75=180 and x+75 is also equal to 180.
    Therefore x and y are equal.
