C) !

1) it could be a rhombus or a parallelogramm => insuff

2) it could be a square or a rhombus => insuff

1) + 2) it should be a rhombus. AC is longer that BD. draw it on an paper an you will see that it isnt`t possible that AC = BD or BD > AC.

Look at the two figures given below.

Though the angle ABC > BCD, the diagonals can be greater or smaller based on any situation.
....A......................B
.....____________
.....\......................\
.......\......................\
.........\......................\
...........\.___________\
............D......................C

and

...............A.....................B
.............._____________
--........../.........................\
.........../............................\
........../...............................\
........./________________\
........D.................................C

Insufficient.

From statement (2), if its a rhombus, then the answer is different (unknown) and if its a square, the answer is known (no).

Insufficient.

Combine them, and the first figure goes, and so the answer can be provided.

Hence (C).

And theArch, you're definitely Sherlock Holmes :) Yes I am an Engineer !!

Actually, I had to put in the dots because the "intelligent" software does not (or renders irregularly) the spaces, so the figure with spaces tend to go absolutely kaput :)

OK i didnt need to know much about this problem

I used a very simple trick...thought chrisoph is absolutely correct (but I forgot my rules, its been a while since I picked up my GMAT prep)

anyway my approach was this....knowing angle is not enough, I need to know the size (relative) of the sides as well...I guess I need two pieces of info, one the angle and the lenght of the sides to know if one particular side is bigger or not!

C it is...
