D?

Let x = angle PRS, y = angle PQS.
Asked x-y = ?

1. Angle QPR = 30
Angle QPR = Angle QPS - Angle RPS
Angle RPS = 90-x
Angle QPS = 90-y

30 = QPR = (90-y) - (90-x) = x-y SUFF.

2. Angle PRQ + Angle PRQ = 150
Which is same as saying angle QPR = 30. (same as condition #1). SUFF too!

see attchment

should be D.
from i, prs = pqr+qpr
prs = pqr+ 30
prs - pqr = 30. so suff...

from ii, pqr+prq = 150, then qpr = 30. also suff..

Agree with D

PRS = x, PQS = y. What is x-y?

1) QPR = 30

Then looking at the larger triangle PQS, add up all the angles.
180 = 90+ PQS + QPS
90 = y + 30 + RPS
60-y = RPS

Then look at the small triangle PRS
180 = 90+x+60-y
30 = x-y Sufficient

2) PRQ + PQR = 150

Y + PRQ = 150 so PRQ = 150-y.
We know that PRQ + x = 180. Substitute in PRQ

150 -y +x = 180 Therefore x-y = 30. Sufficient

Must be D.

Let PQR = y
PRS = x
PRQ = a

We have x +a = 180......(Eq 1)

St1 : QPR = 30 that means y+a+30 =180..... (Eq 2)
Solving eq 1 and eq 2 we get x-y = 30 SUFF

St2: y+a = 150.. This statement is same as statement 1, equation 2. So this is also SUFF

In the figure shown, the measure of angle PRS is how many degrees greater than the measure of angle PQR.

Q: <PRS-<PQR=?

(1) The measure of angle QPR is 30°. <QPR=30 --> in triangle QPR three angles sum=180=<QPR+<PQR+<PRQ -->180=30+<PQR+(180-<PRS) --> 30=<PRS-<PQR SUFFICIENT

(2) The sum of the measures of angles PQR and PRQ is 150°. Basically the same information is given <PQR+<PRQ=150 --> <PQR+180-<PRS=150 --> 30=<PRS-<PQR SUFFICIENT
