**Question #15**

Is 3 *< x <* 4 ?

(1) 1 *< x*

(2) *x <* 5

**Explanation**

Statement (1): Some values greater than 1 are between 3 and 4, but not all are. X* *could be, say, 3.5 or 7. INSUFFICIENT. We can eliminate answers A and D.

Statement (2): Some values less than 5 are between 3 and 4, but not all are. INSUFFICIENT. Eliminate answer B.

Even taken together the two statements don’t yield a definite answer, either “yes” or “no.” Combined, they give a range for *x* of: 1 < *x *< 5. *X* could be 2 (no) or 4 (yes). The correct answer is (E).
