I pick C

1) is not sufficient 8-2=6..... n could be 5
8-5=3 n=2 holds

2) not sufficient.

1)+2) 2-8=-6 n is negative

My approach for the sum was :

p-q>n => p>q+n ( p is greater than the sum of q and n, which makes p greater than n)
q>p => ( as the question has asked for both p & q, this stem gives a clear vision w.r.t stem 1 that q>p, therefore q>r)

Hence ans choice C is correct.

I guess, I am missing something. Please correct me. #bunuel
