Since the two lines are parallel, the shortest line that connects the two parallel lines would be the one that is perpendicular to both the lines and forms a 90 degree angle.

As the angle formed by the line joining these two parallel lines starts decreasing from 90 degrees, the length of the line that is needed to connect the two parallel lines will start increasing.

So if x>y, the line SR would be longer than PQ. Hope this answers your question.
