From the image we know that 3 angles of the quadrilateral on the right are 90deg .. so it is a rectangle & it can be a square if adjacent sides are equal
Also the triangle to the left is a right angled triangle.

We need to find x which is the sum of lengths of the base of the triangle and side of the rectangle.

(1) a = b= 4 meaning.. adjacent sides of rectangle are equal in length! It is a square. Not sufficient as we know nothing about the triangle except for one angle ( 90 deg) and one side ( 4 - side common with the square)

(2) \(c = 4\sqrt{2}\) Not sufficient as we do not know the base of the triangle or anything about the rectangle to the right.

(1) + (2) together ... We know the base of the square is 4 in length.. & .. from Pythagoras theorem we can find the base of the triangle. Sufficient!

Hence Option C is correct.

In the figure shown, what is the value of x?

(1) a = b = 4
If a = b = 4, PQRS has to be a square. Here, RS = 4.
But, we have no idea about the length of TR (Insufficient)

(2) \(c = 4\sqrt{2}\)
With the information c = \(4\sqrt{2}\), we can't determine
the value of TR. Also, we have no information about RS (Insufficient)

When we combine the information from both the statements,
PR = 4(because PR is the side of a square) and the right triangle
has to be an isosceles right-angled triangle. Therefore, TR = \(4\sqrt{2}\)
The value of x = RS + TR = 4 + \(4\sqrt{2}\) (Sufficient - Option C)
