Your note is very hard to read. I suggest you type it in directly.
Thanks from Hammad

The answer is essentially correct, but it should be stated that angle A is calculated based on the fact that the angles of a triangle sum to 180°. The theorem about angles subtended is stated inaccurately.

The reflex angle subtended by the major arc AC at O is 360° - 60° - 60° = 240°. Hence (by the inscribed angle theorem) the angle subtended by that arc at B (the angle you want to find) is 240°/2, which is 120°.
