Imo B

From statement 1 we have p+r>q+s and r>s. Suppose pa and q are equal then the equality holds and when p>q then also it holds. Hence it is not sufficient.

From statement 2 we have p+s<q+r and s>r. Now s>r still LHS > RHS so the difference of p has to be greater than q to hold the inequality.

#1
p + r > q + s and r > s
in sufficient to say whether p >q or not as values r>s and
#2
p + s < q + r and s > r
q>p in this case as s>r
IMO B
