Ofcourse 3rd quadrant means that BOTH will be NEGATIVE.. So ans will be C or E.. Now draw a perpendicular on y axis from both P and Q.. Both triangles thus formed will be similar as all three angles are equal and PO =OQ So the perpendicular drawn will be equal.... If it is s in 1st quadrant, it will be s in III quadrant.. So r,s E
