Statement 1 gives us the co-ordinate of point A
but we need co-ordinate of any other 3 points(B,C and D) so that we may get length of a side or diagonal from which we can calculate the area of square easily so insufficient
Statement 2 gives the co-ordinates of endpoints of diagonal BD using them we can find the diagonal length and thus the area of the square so sufficient

Correct Answer - B



+1 kudos if you like the solution

Urgent Help!!!

A) It's given A(0,4) , it means that distance from origin to point A is 4 and A is half the distance from B , So A =4 and B from origin will b 8 , So diagonal = 8


8 = a * root(2)
a = 4*root(2)

and we an evaluate the area...isn't it ?????????????

Hi rocko911

Let the origin be point o
then the other two angles of right triangle ADO may be anything , which changes the value of side (hyp. of triangle) of square with angles
so u cannot deduce the diagonal to be 8 ..
for more visual clarity , refer below fig attached
hope u understand :)

In GMAT guidelines they say that pic is presented with the actual proportions, meaning that if you see square on the pic, you can be sure that sides of the figure have the same length, or like in our case, if you see equal lines on the linear plane they should be equal as well as angles. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

GMAT gives u enough info for deducing about given fig.
in above ques it was clearly stated that fig is sq. , if not so then the fig may be rectangle.
hope this answers your querry....
