    Hi besos,

    Please ensure that you upload the diagram and write the full question. This is a DS question and you have missed both the statements here.

    Coming to the question:

    Given: PQR and STU are identical equilateral triangles and PQ = 6
    This means both the triangles have the same sides and angles

    Required: Perimeter of PQWTUVR

    Statement 1: Triangle SWV has perimeter 9
    Perimeter of PQWTUVR = sum of perimeters of both the triangles - the perimeter of SWV
    SUFFICIENT

    Statement 2: VW has length 3.5.
    This does not tell us anything about the triangle SVW
    INSUFFICIENT

    Correct Option: A
