    No. All angles of the triangle must add up to 180.

    The question is asking what "could" be the length of the third side. In a triangle, any side length has to satisfy two conditions: 1) It cannot be equal to or less than the difference of the other two sides 2) It cannot be equal to or greater than the sum of the other two sides. So, in this case, the 3rd side "could" be anything more than 15 or anything less than 105.
