1) p-q is greater than n
2) p<q


1) insufficient -> try (p,q,n) = (10,1,8) and (10,8,1)
2) insufficient -> try (p,q,n) = (1,3,2) and (10,13,2)

1&2 sufficient, p < q -> p-q < 0 since p-q > n -> n is negative but since p and q are positive, both p and q are greater than n.

Answer C.

Together we can tell that p-q will be a negative # greater than n. So n must be a negative number. P and q are positive always.

2) p < q -> p-q < 0
1) p-q > n -> n < p-q < 0

since p, q are positive -> p,q > 0 > n
