D
From question stem and figure we know that the height of P is 3.

From st1

When OP =6 we have the hypotenuse as 6 and small side as 3 in a right triangle. Hence the other side (a) can be found out. Sufficient

St2

Now the angle PO-x axis =30 degree. Hence OP-perpendicular line to X axis is 60 degree. Hence the triangle is a 30-60-90 right triangle with one side as 3. Hence we can find a. Sufficient

yes i think answer can be D and E because i had read some where that you can't trust diagram and their is no information whether line passes through origin and this is very crucial information. If Diagram is correct the answer must be D as from a we can find through distance formula and from B we can find out the length by 30-60-90 triangle.
