B)6
C)10
D)12
E)30

an angle of a regular polygon is given by a formula $$\frac{(n-2)*180}{n}$$
Hence we have y = $$\frac{(n-2)*180}{n}$$
here, $$n$$ = no of sides of the polygon
$$X$$ here is an external angle of the polygon

external angles of a regular polygon add up to 360 degrees
therefore $$x = 360/n$$
Given that,
$$y = 5X$$

$$5X =$$ $$\frac{(n-2)*180}{n}$$

$$5X*n = (n-2)*180$$

$$5* 360 = (n-2)*180$$

solve for n; $$n = 12$$
option D
