First, recall the following

The sum of all of the interior angles of a quadrilateral is equal to \(360^{\circ}\)

In that way, we have

\(\text{Angle_1}+\text{Angle_2}+\text{Angle_3}+\text{Angle_4}=360^{\circ}\)

We know that one of the interior angles has a measure of \(110^{\circ}\)

Thus,

\(110^{\circ}+\text{Angle_2}+\text{Angle_3}+\text{Angle_4}=360^{\circ}\)
\(\text{Angle_2}+\text{Angle_3}+\text{Angle_4}=360^{\circ}-110^{\circ}\)
\(\text{Angle_2}+\text{Angle_3}+\text{Angle_4}=250^{\circ}\)

Therefore, B
