Question #13

Is x greater than 2.7 ?

(1) x > 2.6

(2) x > 2.8


Explanation

If x > 2.6, we still can’t be sure it is greater than 2.7. It could be 2.65, or 2.8…so statement (1) is not sufficient.

Statement (2), on the other hand, is sufficient. If x > 2.8, then we know with certainty that it is greater than 2.7. The correct answer is (B).
