SOLUTIONIn the xyplane above, is angle QPR a right angle?(1) Points P and Q have the same xcoordinate. Since P and Q have the same xcoordinate, then line segment PQ is vertical. Not sufficient. (Line segment PR can be at any angle to line segment PQ). (2) Points P and R have the same ycoordinate. Since P and R have the same ycoordinate, then line segment PR is horizontal. Not sufficient. (1)+(2) PQ is vertical and PR is horizontal. Therefore angle QPR must be a right angle. Sufficient. Answer: C.

St 1: insufficient: PQ is parallel to Y axis St 2: insufficient: PR is parallel to X axis
1 + 2 : Sufficient PQ perpendicular to PR IMO C

Statement 1 tells us that PQ is vertical line ll to Y axix Statement 2 tells us that PR is horizontal line ll to X axis X axis is perpendicular to Y axis
1+2 gives the ans hence C

A. Insufficient. Since, we do not know whether the line is parallel to x axis B. Insufficient. Since, we do not know whether the line is parallel to y axis. Together the two statements give the answer. C.

Why C? I understand PQ = horizontal same x coordinate but PR can be 2,3 & 3,3 no & PQ can still be Q = 8,3 & P = 2,3

(1) Points P and Q have the same xcoordinate. (2) Points P and R have the same ycoordinate. Solution: We are given a triangle in the coordinate plane, and we must determine whether angle QPR is a right angle. Remember that a right angle measures 90 degrees. Statement One Alone:Points P and Q have the same xcoordinate. Statement one alone is not enough to determine whether angle QPR is a right angle. We can draw some diagrams to illustrate: We see in the diagram above that points P and Q have the same xcoordinate; however, angle QPR is not a right angle. We see in the diagram above that points P and Q have the same xcoordinate, and angle QPR is a right angle. Statement one is insufficient to answer the question. We can eliminate answer choices A and D. Statement Two Alone:Points P and R have the same ycoordinate. Again, let's draw some diagrams to illustrate: We see in the diagram above that points P and R have the same ycoordinate; however, angle QPR is not a right angle. We see in the diagram above that points P and R have the same ycoordinate, and angle QPR is a right angle. Statement two is insufficient to answer the question. We can eliminate answer choice B. Statements One and Two Together:From statements one and two together we know that points P and R have the same ycoordinate and points P and Q have the same xcoordinate. Thus, PR must be parallel to the x axis and QP must be parallel to the y axis and angle QPR must be a right angle. The answer is C.

This is one of the several examples where the figure is drawn to scale but we cannot make any assumptions about the angles. Statement 1) Gives no information about R...........Insufficient Statement 2) Gives no information about Q...........Insufficient
Together we know that PQR is a right angled triangle.

Are we supposed to assume that the points Q, P, and R are distinct? If no, then QPR can be a zerodegree angle

If no, then QPR can be a zerodegree angle 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.

A.Insufficient. Since, we do not know the y axis point they can form any angle B. Insufficient. Since, we do not know the x axis point they can form any angle a+b is Sufficient
