Please help with above problem. Hi, Since it is given that PQ and PR are parallel to rectangular coordinate axis.. PQ is parallel to yaxis, so P will have same x coordinate as Q but different y coordinate.. Similarly since PR is parallel to xaxis, Pwill have same y coordinate but different x coordinate as R.. Statement I gives x coordinate of Q which is same as that of point P and statement II gives us y coordinate of R which is same as that of P.. So combined we have both coordinates and ans is 1+1=0 Sufficient C

Please help with above problem. As explained in the attached figure !! The distance of line PR from X axis is 1 unit. Similarly, The distance of line PR from Y axis is 1 unit towards negative axis. So coordinates of point P = (1 , 1) Therefore the sum = 0 (Answer)

Please help with above problem. As PQ is parallel to Y axis( X coordinate of Q will same for x coordinate of P) and PR is parallel to X axis(Y coordinate of Q will same for Y coordinate of P). So 1+1 = 0 .C

Hi Bunuel, I have one question. It is never mentioned in the question that PQ is parallel to Yaxis and PR is parallel to Xaxis. The statement just says it is parallel to one of rectangular axes. (only given figure says, PQ is parallel to Yaxis and PR is parallel to Xaxis). A figure in any question is not to scale. so let us assume that, PQ is parallel to Xaxis and PR is parallel to Yaxis, (as shown in the attached photo) now applying, statement 1 and statement2, we still cannot know coordinates of P, so answer will be E. But however, if we go by info given in figure (PQ  to Yaxis and PR  to Xaxis), then answer is C. Please help.

Please help. Problem SolvingFigures: All figures accompanying problem solving questions are intended to provide information useful in solving the problems. Figures are drawn as accurately as possible. Exceptions will be clearly noted. Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight. The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero. All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated. Data Sufficiency:Figures:• Figures conform to the information given in the question, but will not necessarily conform to the additional information given in statements (1) and (2). • Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight. • The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero.• All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
