1) co-ordinates of D are (7,3)
=> BC = 3 = DE;
co-ordinates of E are (4,3)
length AB is not known, hence y co-ordinate of F is not known.
Not sufficient.

2) Given C (7,-1);
BC = 3 = DE
F = (4,-1)
2 is sufficient.

Option B

How did you get BC= 3 from statement 2??

X-coordinate of B is 10 and that of C is 7. Y coordinate of both B and C is same.

So, the distance between B and C will be the difference between their x - coordinates = 10-7 = 3

or if still not clear use the distance formula which is \(sqrt((difference between x coordinate)^2 + ( difference between y cooridante ) ^2 )\).

Hence, B is sufficient.

B it is
Only B gives the coordinates of -ve y axis and a and C points combined together gives the equal distances of x axis .

Not sure if I’m looking at this the right way, but I imagined that I was making right triangles on the diagram. If I know the point C I would know AB and CB because of the change in horizontal/vertical axis. If know that and I know that EF=AB and DE=BC I should be able to find point F. Point D would let me find the horizontal length of the horizontal lines, but I’d have no way of knowing the Y axis changes
