Explanatory Answer

Method of solving this CAT Question from Quadrilaterals: It is a very basic question.

If PQ || RS => ∆POQ ~ ∆ROS
=> \\frac{1}{(x+5)}\\) = \\frac{x-2}{13x-31}\\)
=> 13x - 31 = (x-2)(x+5)
=> 13x – 31 = x2 – 2x + 5x – 10
=> 13x – 31 = x2 + 3x – 10
=> x2 – 10x +21 = 0
=> x2 – 7x – 3x +21 = 0
=> x(x-7) -3(x-7) = 0
=> (x-3)(x-7) = 0
=> x = 3, 7

The question is "If PQ || RS, find the value of x "

Hence, the answer is Both A & B

Choice C is the correct answer.
