Q1)
P and Q are two forces (vectors) inclined at an angle. Let Q be the smaller force.
P + Q = 18 N
R is the resultant force vector perpendicular to Q.  and  R = 12 Newtons
The triangle made by P, Q and R vectors, is a right angle triangle with P as the diagonal and Q and R as sides.
So    P² = Q² + R²
(18 - Q)² = Q² + 12²    =>  Q =

===================
Q2)
given acceleration of lift = a   downwards
Acceleration of the ball when it is released by the man in the lift
= g - a   wrt the man inside the lift.
= g - 0 = g       wrt the man standing on the ground

When we are looking at velocity v1  or acceleration a1 relative to some other object having velocity v2 and acceleration a2 , then the relative velocity of relative acceleration of the first body wrt the second body is =  v1 - v2    and  a1 - a2  respectively.
here these quantities are vectors...
