$\textbf{Central Angle Theorem:}$ The Central Angle Theorem states that the central angle from two chosen points $A$ and $B$ on the circle is always twice the inscribed angle from those two points. The inscribed angle can be defined by any point along the outer arc $AB$ and the two points $A$ and $B.$

Now, we can use the above theorem, and get the below diagram,

Now, $10\theta = 360^{\circ}$

$\implies \theta = 36^{\circ}.$

So, the correct answer is $(A).$
