You need to remember that the names of angles depend on the measures of angles, such that:

  • if an angle measures less then `90^o` , the angle is called acute;
  • if an angle measures exactly `90^o` , the angle is called right;
  • if an angle is in `(90^o,180^o), ` the angle is called obtuse;
  • if an angle measures exactly `180^o` ,the angle is called right;
  • if an angle is in `(180^o,360^o), ` the angle is called reflex

Hence, since the angle measures `160^o` , then the angle is called obtuse.

Everything under 90 degrees is an acute angle.  A 90 degree angle is a right angle.  An angle that is 160 degrees is an obtuse angle, because every angle over 90 degrees is obtuse.
