    Answer:

    The correct option is;

    Angle Addition Postulate;

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The given two column proof can be presented as follows;

    Statement                      {}                          Reason

    1. ∠PQR is a right angle      {}                     Given

    2. m∠PQR = 90°       {}                                Definition of Right Angle

    3. m∠PQS + m∠SQR = m∠PQR      {}         Angle Addition Postulate

    4. m∠PQS + m∠SQR = 90°      {}                 Substitution property of equality

    5. ∠PQS and ∠SQR are complementary Definition of complementary angles

    Given that the angle m∠PQR has angles m∠PQS and m∠SQR arranged adjacent to each other while sharing the same boundary segment, QS we have by the angle addition postulate;

    m∠PQR is the sum of the angles m∠PQS and m∠SQR, therefore;

    m∠PQR = m∠PQS + m∠SQR = 90°.
