See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given Information.

The figure is shown below.

Step 2. Concept used.

If the sum of two angles is 90° then the angles are called complementary angles and if the sum is 180° then the angles are called supplementary angles.

Step 3. Calculation.

The sum of measures of all the possible pairs of angles in the quadrilateral is,

A+B=170°A+C=180°A+ D=90°B+C=270°



In the above list, only the pair A, and D have the sum of their measures equal to 90°.

Step 4. Conclusion.

The pair of complementary angles in the quadrilateral is A, and D.
