Please help! Let me ask you a question: do you know the distance between Q and R? If both statements are taken together, Q is between P and R and distance between P and Q is 5. Therefore distance between P and Q should be equal to Q and R right?

St1 : It only tells about position of Q but not provide any specific values hence insufficient. St2 : It tells only distance between P and Q but no info between Q and R hence insufficient. St1 + st2 : We still don't know distance between Q and R. Insufficient. Hence E.
