Answere E in both the cases ??

1) Each statement by itself doesnt seem enough. We need to know the number of games a team played before the playoffs.

2) Again each statement doesnt seem enough. We only know that the sum of the other two angles is 180 degrees. These angles could be anything.

The opposite angles are 90 degrees. The other two angles have to be 90 and 90. However the quadrilateral could be square or a rectangle. Hence the answer is E.

Consider this quadrilateral with opposite sides set at 90 degrees, while neither remaining angle is at 90.
