In the figure above, for the heavy broken line from P to R(which is composed of line segments that are parallel either to OR or OP),
length of the line segments is equal to the sum of the value of the lines segments OR and OP(x+y)

Therefore, the total length of the heavy broken line from P to R is x+y(Option B)
