SOLUTION
Adjacent angles $$\rightarrow$$ Two angles are Adjacent when they have a common side and a common vertex (corner point) and don't overlap.
Linear pair of angles $$\rightarrow$$ A linear pair of angles is formed when two lines intersect. Two angles are said to be linear if they are adjacent angles formed by two intersecting lines. 
The sum of a linear pair of angles is $$180°$$.
