s = the x-coordinate of point C. This x-coordinate is THE SAME as the x-coordinate of point D.
So, s = 8

t = the y-coordinate of point C. This y-coordinate is THE SAME as the y-coordinate of point B.
So, t = 7

So, we have:
Quantity A: 8
Quantity B: 7

A

Hi,

I was of the opinion that we shouldn't assume perpendicular and parallel lines in GRE, nor does the question mention that the figure is a rectangle. If that is the case, then I can shift point C anywhere in the first quadrant making any of the values "s" or "t" to be bigger?

Could you please revert on this.

Great point!
I have added the proviso "ABCD is a rectangle" in order to remove that ambiguity.

Cheers,
