\(\triangle\) PQO and \(\triangle\) PMN are similar
Since \(\angle\)OQP =\(\angle\) NMP = 90
and \(\angle\) OPQ = \(\angle\) NPM (Common angle)
The corresponding sides of similar triangles are in proportion
(1) ON = 6 1⁄2
In right angled \(\triangle\) PQO ,
OP^2 = OQ^2 + QP^2
= 5^2 + 12^2
= 25 +144
= 169
OP= 13
NP = PO + ON
= 13 + 6.5 = 19.5
OQ/ MN = PO / PN
5/MN = 13 / 19.5 = 2/3
=>MN = 7.5
Sufficient
(2) MQ = 6
PQ/PM = OQ/ NM
12/18 = 5/NM = 2/3
MN = 7.5
Sufficient
Answer D

Two ways to approach similar triangles

St 1

Yes because OQ/MN = PO/PN

St 2

Another way
