1) I picked numbers here and quickly came up with insufficient. Consider a case where p = 20, q = 8, n =10. Then consider p = 20, q = 12, n = 7.

2) Tells you nothing about n. Insufficient.

1&2) Gotta be careful to remember that p and n are both positive here. If p-q is greater than n and q is greater than p, that means that n must be negative. So both statements together are sufficient.

C

(2) easily INSUFF. Nothing on N

(1) INSUFF
picked numbers
10-5>1
5-2>2

Together, SUFF since p and q are positive numbers and since q>p, the diff of q-p will always be negative
