Is zero halfway between r and s

On the number line shown, is zero halfway between r and s?
pic: <--r------s--t-->

1. s is to the right of zero
2. The distance between t and r is the same as the distance between t and -s

I chose b, statement 2 is suff by itself, and not statement 1.

I figure you do not need statement 1, since statement 2 makes it sound like r and s are opposites of each other. If there were no picture, then I would have chosen c. Should I not pay attention to the number line picture on this question?

ashan, try posting questions in Problem Solving questions, where many members would answer your questions

consider the following possibility and you will see why stmt 2 alone is not sufficient...
t= -1
s= -2
r= -4

all the best....
