### Question Asked by a Student from EXXAMM.com Team

** Q 1217412389. ** A right pyramid has its base a square `ABCD` and vertex `V. A` variable point `P` is taken on the edge `VB` and `Q` is the midpoint of `BC`.

Statement - 1: The sum `AP + PQ` is the least if `A, p` and `Q` are collinear, when the plane `VBQ` is rotated about the edge `VB` to be in the same plane with the plane `VAP`

Statement - 2: When the planes `VAP` and `VBQ` form a single plane, `AP` and `PQ` are common perpendicular to edge `VB`.
