Question: What is the ratio of perimeter of OPS to RQS ?

Since two sides of triangles are parallel therefore two triangles are similar
Ratio fo Area of two similar triangles = Square of ratio of their corresponding sides
i.e. $$A_1/A_2 = (S_1/S_2)^2$$
and ratio fo perimeters of two triangles, $$P_1/P_2 = (S_1/S_2)$$
Therefore need only the ratio of sides of two similar triangles in this case

Statement 1: The ratio of the length of PQ to the length of QS is 2 : 1.
i.e. $$(S_1/S_2) = 3/1$$
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: The ratio of the length of OP to the length of RQ is 3 : 1

i.e. $$(S_1/S_2) = 3/1$$
SUFFICIENT
