Solution

The correct option is B

PQ + PR > QS



Sum of the lengths of the two sides is always greater than the length of third side.

So in ΔPQR, we have
PQ + PR > QR
PQ + PR > QT + RT
[Since QR = QT + RT]

PQ + PR > QT + ST ............. (i)
[Since RT = ST]

In ΔQST, we have
QT + ST > QS ..............(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we get
PQ + PR > QS
