Answer: (2) 45 degree

Explanation:-
Let the measure of an angle be X.
Then, the supplement angle of X = 180 – X

Then, complement angle of X = 90 – X
Supplement angle is three times as large as its complement.
Then, 3(90 – X ) = 180 – X
3 x 90 – 3 x X = 180 – X
270 – 3 X = 180 – X
– 3 X + X = 180 – 270
– 2 X = -90
2 X = 90
X = 90/2
X = 45 degree

Hence, the answer is (2) 45 degree.
