In the xy-plane above, is angle QPR a right angle?

(1) Points P and Q have the same x-coordinate. Since P and Q have the same x-coordinate, then line segment PQ is vertical. Not sufficient. (Line segment PR can be at any angle to line segment PQ).

(2) Points P and R have the same y-coordinate. Since P and R have the same y-coordinate, then line segment PR is horizontal. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) PQ is vertical and PR is horizontal. Therefore angle QPR must be a right angle. Sufficient.

Answer: C.

St 1: insufficient: PQ is parallel to Y axis
St 2: insufficient: PR is parallel to X axis

1 + 2 : Sufficient PQ perpendicular to PR
IMO C
