Here we see three right angle triangles and all are similar triangles

Due to similarity ratio, \(1/a = b/1\)

i.e. \(ab = 1\)

Question: Length of QP = ?
To answer this question we only need the either a or b so that we can calculate hypotenuse of right triangle with hypotenuse PQ

Statement 1: b = 2

SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: PQR is a right angle

We already know this hence this is redundant information

NORT SUFFICIENT

Answer: option A
