Are there DS problems where statement 1 is "ALWAYS YES" and statement 2 yields an "ALWAYS NO"? In this case, which would be the correct answer?
If I understood you properly then my ananlysis is below.
Question: is x > 5?
STAT2 something else
Now, if STAT 1 is giving you that x > 5 for ALL the conditions
Then it is SUFFICIENT
if STAT2 is giving you that x NOT > 5 for ALL the conditions
Then is is SUFFCIENT
Answer will be D in this case.
The whole point in solving for a DS question is that whether you are able to find out the answer to the question with the given options.
What i mean is if the question is asking if x >5?
then if you are able to prove that x > 5 always then it is sufficent
also, if you are able to prove that x NOT 5 ALWAYS then this is also sufficent.
The conclusion is, by suing the options given you SHOULD be able to asnwer the question asked in the problem.
Hope it helps.
