Is line PQ parallel to line SR? That is, is x = z?

Statement 1:
w = q
From the triangle PQR, x + q + y = 180 => x = 180 - q - y
z + w + y = 180 => z = 180 - w - y = 180 - q - y
Therefore, z = x
Lines PQ and SR are parallel.
Statement 1 is sufficient.

Statement 2:
y = z
x = 180 - q - y = 180 - q - z
But, this statement is not sufficient to know whether x = z

IMO Option A
Using first statement w=q alternate interior angles are equal. So lines are parallel.
Second statement does not give us a condition for satisfying parallel lines So B not sufficient.

Think of lines QR and PR as transversals through lines PQ and SR. Two lines cut by a transversal will be parallel if all the acute angles are same and all the obtuse angles are same. Lines PQ and SR will be parallel if x=z and w=q.

Statement 1: as w=q so Lines PQ and SR are parallel. Sufficient
Statement 2: Insufficient to prove that x=z or w=q.

statement 1- w=q, then it will solve the question, using externally angle theorem, PQ is equal to SR.
statement 2- y=z, then it does not let us know about angle of line PQ and SR.

So the answer to the equation is A.
