If ∠OPQ = ∠QRS = 90 and PQ = 6, what is the length of QR?
Now in ∆PQO and ∆SQR..
∠OPQ = ∠QRS = 90
∠OQP= ∠RQS = opposite angles
Thus all angles are same and triangles are similar..
Similar triangles have all sides in SAME ratio..

(1) Q is the midpoint of OS.
So the sides are of same length
PQ = QR =6
Sufficient

(2) QS = QO = 10
Same as above
QR =6
Sufficient

D

Angle P=R=90
Angle OQP=RQS
Therefore all three angles of triangles OPQ and RQS are same.
Triangles are similar and Similar triangles have sides in the same ratio.
S1 - OQ=QS
Since triangles are similar and OQ=QS, PQ=QR=6
Sufficient.

S2 - QS = QO = 10, which is same info as S1 i.e. OQ=QS
QR=6.
Sufficient.
Answer D.
