we know that the we can find the length of the segment of the circle if we can find the center angle enclosed within the segment and the radius.

we have been given two angles x enclosed within points wx and yz
we can respectively find the centre angle for the given points as 2x.
Each angle 2x forms a sector of a circle within points wx and yz
Therefore both minor arc in question will be of equal length. we do not need to know the radius unless we want the exact length of the segment.
option c

If two inscribed angles hold the same cord, the two inscribed angles are equal.

Therefore, Inscribed angles holding chords/arcs of equal length are equal.

Vice versa, Two inscribed angles are equal so there cords are equal.
