This one looks so easy you might think there is a trap; definitely C.

So true, I was wondering what would the diagram look like for statement 1...

For (1) MNOP may or may not be a square as shown below:

It does help, thank you; Visual aids like this one will be very helpful under stressful and timed conditions when one might momentarily confuse a general quadrilateral with a square specifically. Remembering this drawings will definitely help!

OFFICIAL GUIDE:

Problem Solving
Figures: 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.

Hope it helps.

Stupid, annoying question (sorry, I just had to vent):

1) tells us the lengths of three sides but this theoretically still could leave us with a fourth side that is longer/shorter than the rest, so insufficient

2) Tells us that our quadrilateral is either a rectangle or a square, insufficient.

1 + 2 tell us that our quadrilateral is a square, because 2) restricts the possible shapes that 1) can take, and combining the two tells us how long the fourth side in 1) is, so sufficient.

Hi
yes, the alphabets give us the order of vertices

Hi raviraaj,

We always read the vertices in the order (Clockwise or Anticlockwise) of their placements and don't consider them random vertices.

... And no question is dumb question it's more of exposure and less of competence that makes a difference among the level the questions test takers ask. SO don't be shy in asking any question however dumb you feel about that question.
