Actually, since the sum of the three angles in a triangle equals 180°, both triangles M and N (since they are similar) have angles of:    32°, 93° and 55°.
 
If the distractors (the choices in a multiple-choice question) are given, choose the one (the correct answer is called the key) with two of those three angles.

Well the question is incorrect. It asks which two angles could be included. As you correctly noted only one other angle is possible.
