I thought column B is greater than column A but it turns out that
the relationship cannot be determined.

Could anyone point out why?

x = 1/200
y = 1/200 + 1/ (1/200)
= 1/200 + 200
> 100

so the relationship cannot be determined

IS THIS A GMAT QUESTION?

I apologise for the confusion here.

Yes. It is not not GMAT, and it is GRE, which is also administered by ETS.

Currently, I would be taking both GMAT [in Feb 2004], and GRE [next week] at the same time, as I am not sure if I can get into a MBA school, or any Master program. So, I am sending in applications to two different Master programs at the same time, and I need both scores.

I feel some of the styles, format, words between the two tests are quite related e.g. the comprehesion, which I find it more literary for GRE as compared to the ones from GMAT. The verbal questions are sometimes a bit similar between the two, and maybe the ones from GMAT are slightly harder.

I would appreciate if MBA hopefuls can assist me in my questions here,
and I am really sorry for any confusion here.

To avoid confusion you might want to put "GRE:" in the subject.
I understand your situation .... but many members might want to just concentrate on GMAT questions and not get distracted by GRE ones. GRE qsns have a different feel to it and GMAT test takers may be thrown off/lose confidence by looking at a different format of qsn ....

The answer has to be E. 0 < x < 10 can mean x = 0.0001. The question stem does not say wthether x is integer or not.

Diff. btwn. GMAT and GRE math questions [#permalink]  13 Jan 2004, 10:14
One difference sometimes, especially between the more difficult GMAT questions to the GRE is that you may need to combine two or more concepts to answer a GMAT question, whereas GRE questions typically require one concept to be applied.

Good luck!
