Statement #1: (P, Q) is closer to the x-axis than to the y-axis.

Statement #2: Point (P, Q) is above the line y = x + 1.

statement 1:- (P, Q) is closer to the x-axis than to the y-axis.
let (P, Q) = (9,1) here p>q but if (P, Q) = (-9,1) then p<q so not sufficient
statement 2:- Point (P, Q) is above the line y = x + 1
let's take here the line y=x which has x and y-intercept zero
and in line y=x+1 x-intercept=0 and y-intercept=1 this means y=x+1 is above the line y=x(since both are parallel)
from this, we came to know that if (P, Q) lies above y=x+1 then q>p which gives a definite answer no so sufficient
B
