Both saying QPR =30

=[90- angleRPS] - [ 90- angleQPS]
=angle QPS - angle RPS
=QPR

hence D

In the figure shown, the measure of angle PRS is how many degrees greater than the measure of angle PQR.

Q: <PRS-<PQR=?

(1) The measure of angle QPR is 30°. <QPR=30 --> in triangle QPR three angles sum=180=<QPR+<PQR+<PRQ -->180=30+<PQR+(180-<PRS) --> 30=<PRS-<PQR SUFFICIENT

(2) The sum of the measures of angles PQR and PRQ is 150°. Basically the same information is given <PQR+<PRQ=150 --> <PQR+180-<PRS=150 --> 30=<PRS-<PQR SUFFICIENT
