Please follow the rules of the board, posting a new one question.

rules-for-posting-please-read-this-before-posting-1083.html

Also, the best way to format it

qq-how-to-post-a-gre-question-the-easy-way-2357.html

The answer is D: you only know that one angle is 90°. So you do have for the other two angles 90°. But no more than this. Not enough information.

I also wait response from quant expert.

Thank you

I think y>x
one angle is 90, one angle is common
small arm makes larger angle

angle made by the arm is 90, then y then x and continue to decrease

y is greater than x.

The closer you move towards the 90 degrees the greater is the value of the angle.

Since the figure is not drawn to scale, this means I can rotate the smaller triangle side until it coincides with the one of the larger so that angle x is equal to angle y. The only fixed information is that the angle on the left is right. Isn't it correct?
