I felt the question is confusing. Shouldn't it be "In the figure above, the point on segment PQ that is half as far from P as from Q is"?

I think that you're reading it as a comparison between these two things:

- the distance between P and the new point

- the distance between P and Q

However, the wording of the problem is actually asking you to compare these two things:

- the distance between P and the new point

- the distance between the new point and Q

I found the wording of the question confusing, too.

The way I interpreted "twice as far from P as from Q" was "twice as far from P and twice as far from Q". That's what I feel the questions asks.
