Problem

In $\triangle ABC, \overline{CA} = \overline{CB}$. On $CB$ square $BCDE$ is constructed away from the triangle. If $x$ is the number of degrees in $\angle DAB$, then

$\textbf{(A)}\ x\text{ depends upon }\triangle ABC \qquad \textbf{(B)}\ x\text{ is independent of the triangle} \\ \textbf{(C)}\ x\text{ may equal }\angle CAD \qquad \\ \textbf{(D)}\ x\text{ can never equal }\angle CAB \\ \textbf{(E)}\ x\text{ is greater than }45^{\circ}\text{ but less than }90^{\circ}$
