If p, q and r are in AP, then q = p+r/2

From statement 1:

q = p*r
Hence p, q and r are not in AP.
Sufficient.

From statement 2:

q = p+r
Again, p, q, and r are not in AP.
Sufficient.

D is the answer.

The question doesn't make much sense, so it's not worth worrying about - it's not even clear what it means (do we need p, q and r to be in progression in that order?) Nor do you even need to know what the phrase "arithmetic progression" means for the GMAT. But it's certainly possible that p=q=r=0 here, and 0, 0, 0 is an arithmetic progression, so the answer using both statements is "possibly yes". But it's also "possibly no", since we could have q = 4 and p=r=2.
