Solution


In the given figure, AB || CD and AE is the transversal.

∴ ∠DOE = ∠BAE (Pair of corresponding angles)

⇒ ∠DOE = 65°

In ∆COE,

∠DOE = ∠OEC + ∠ECO (Exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of two opposite interior angles)

⇒ 65° = 20° + ∠ECO

⇒ ∠ECO = 65° − 20° = 45°

Thus, the measure of ∠ECO is 45°.
