Solution

It is given that,

AB || CD

EF ⊥ CD

∠GED = 126º

⇒ ∠GEF + ∠FED = 126º

⇒ ∠GEF + 90º = 126º

⇒ ∠GEF = 36º

∠AGE and ∠GED are alternate interior angles.

⇒ ∠AGE = ∠GED = 126º

However, ∠AGE + ∠FGE = 180º (Linear pair)

⇒ 126º + ∠FGE = 180º

⇒ ∠FGE = 180º − 126º = 54º

∴ ∠AGE = 126º, ∠GEF = 36º, ∠FGE = 54º
