Can you check the OA? I don't believe this Statement (1) is sufficient. If If P, Q(3,4) and R(4,3) are 3 points in the coordinate plane, is QP>PR? If P = (3, 3), let's say, then PR = 1 and QP = 7, the answer is YES. But if P = (4, 4), then PR =10.6 and QP = 7, then answer is NO.

I. P is a point lying on the line y=x II. Point P is in the first quadrant. In no way Option A can be correct because If P lies in 1st quadrant => QP<PR for all values of P But If P lies in 3rd quadrant => QP>PR for all values of P. IMO, Option B is sufficient to say that QP>PR. Please correct the OA. Thanks.

I. P is a point lying on the line y=x II. Point P is in the first quadrant. I think what you intended to do here was to use y=x as the mirror but the values you provided for Q and R didn't work well. Had the point been (3, 4) and (4, 3), they would have been at the same distance from x=y and then if the point P was on x=y line, it would be at the same distance from both these points. Maybe it's just a typo. It would have been a good question though!

If P = (3, 3), let's say, then PR = 1 and QP = 7, the answer is YES. But if P = (4, 4), then PR =10.6 and QP = 7, then answer is NO. Sorry for the typo error. Now corrected it.

To do this question faster, instead of using distance formula to take out values of line segment QP and PR, better way would be to plot the points and randomly take based on statement 1 and statement 2 and you'll see on graph that from statement 1 QP and PR are equal and hence we get a definite NO so statement 1 is SUFFICIENT.
BUT from statememt 2, when we plot points, it can be observed that there is no definite answer. There are two answers YES and NO. Therefore, NOT SUFFICIENT.
