What is the measure of angle SQR in the figure above?

(1) x = 40°
Knowing the value of x is not enough to find the value of angle SQR unless
we know that the triangles PQS and SQR are congruent.(Insufficient)

(2) y = 80°
If y=80, the angle QSR is 100 degree(sum of angles in a straight line is 180 degree)
Since the angles in a triangle sum up to 180, SQR = 180 - (100+30) = 50(Sufficient - Option B)

Bunuel Since PS= SR, isn't the line QS an angle bisector ?

We are not given that PS= SR, and you cannot assume that from the figure. Even if we were given that PS= SR, then QS would be median, not an angle bisector.

#1
x=40
insufficient
#2
y=80
angle QSR = 100
and angle SQR = 180-(100+30) ; 50
sufficient
OPTION B

But it states it right under the triangle that PS = SR. my reasoning behind A being sufficient is since the PS = SR and angle x is adjacent from PS, won't that make the other angle adjacent to SR equal to angle S?

My eyes :) :) :)

Yes. PS = SR but (1) is still not sufficient. For example, consider the image below:
