As Q is mid point of PS so PQ = QS

and PQ=7(Given) so QS=7

and QS= QR+RS => 7=QR+4 => QR=3

PR= PQ+QR=> 7+3= 10

$$PQ = 7, PS = 14, QS = 7.$$

$$QS = QR + RS$$
$$RS = 4, QR = 3.$$

$$PR = PQ + QR$$
$$PQ = 7, QR = 3, PR = 10.$$ Ans - B.

Since PQ+QR+RS=14 [Q being mid point of the segment so PR=2PQ]
Substituting and solving for QR above would give 3. PQ+QR=10.
