bigtreez, a digram would have helped understand this better.

Assuming, angles x,y and z correspond to vertices P,Q and R respectively, stmt1 is not sufficient to answer the question. Stmt2 is sufficient.

Hence, B.

yeah, sorry about that, the question actually comes with a diagram.

why is B sufficient?

1)x=y, this means triangle is isoceles or equilateral so PQ is either smaller or the same size as RP

2) y=z gives us basically the same information

If x corresponds to vertex P and y corresponds to vertex Q, then if x = y that means, PR = QR and PQ can be smaller, same or larger than RP. Hence, insufficient.

yeah, i understand why A is insuff. but why is B suff.?

B tells you that PQ and RP are the same and hence PQ is not greater than RP. This answer the question. Hence, sufficient.
