stat1 : QR is a diameter... hence traingle in semicircle is right traingle suff
stat 2 : not suff... the third side cud be anything
ans A

Statement 1 is a property and it is sufficient
Statement 2 : The other side can take any value between 2 and 8; if it is 4 then it is sufficient. Not enough information available.
Option A

Ans : st 1 ) sufficient  QR is diameter . It is property of inscribed triangle in circle . If the one of the sides equal the diameter of the circle . Then the triangle is Right angle triangle . st 2 ) Not sufficient two side is given as 3 ,4 but the third side can be 5 or 7 . Apply the property of sum of two side in triangle is greater than the third side . Then you will realize . The triangle can have value as ( 3, 4, 5 > right angle ) or ( 3,4, 7 > not a right angle ) Hence A as answer . Regards, Press Kudos if you like the post.

Not sufficient. Answer: A.

A. II statement does not suggest that SR is 4. Hence NS. Sent from my ZUK Z2132 using GMAT Club Forum mobile app

Not sufficient. Answer: A. Hi BunuelIf it were 345; 3410; 645;................any multiple of 3:4:5, then it would be a right angled triangle ? Also to know if that triangle inscribed in the circle is a right triangle, then diameter would be the longest side of the triangle. Are there any other factors that can help us understand whether the triangle is a right angled triangle?

Also to know if that triangle inscribed in the circle is a right triangle, then diameter would be the longest side of the triangle. Are there any other factors that can help us understand whether the triangle is a right angled triangle? • Any triangle whose sides are in the ratio 3:4:5 is a right triangle. Such triangles that have their sides in the ratio of whole numbers are called Pythagorean Triples. There are an infinite number of them, and this is just the smallest. If you multiply the sides by any number, the result will still be a right triangle whose sides are in the ratio 3:4:5. For example 6, 8, and 10.• A Pythagorean triple consists of three positive integers \(a\), \(b\), and \(c\), such that \(a^2 + b^2 = c^2\). Such a triple is commonly written \((a, b, c)\), and a wellknown example is \((3, 4, 5)\). If \((a, b, c)\) is a Pythagorean triple, then so is \((ka, kb, kc)\) for any positive integer \(k\). There are 16 primitive Pythagorean triples with c ≤ 100: (3, 4, 5) (5, 12, 13) (7, 24, 25) (8, 15, 17) (9, 40, 41) (11, 60, 61) (12, 35, 37) (13, 84, 85) (16, 63, 65) (20, 21, 29) (28, 45, 53) (33, 56, 65) (36, 77, 85) (39, 80, 89) (48, 55, 73) (65, 72, 97). So, 3:4:10 is not a Pythagorean triple, 3^2 + 4^2 does not equal 10^2. You'll get a Pythagorean triple if you multiply another Pythagorean triple by a positive integer, so multiply the entire ratio, not just one of its numbers.
