I've listed some questions that took me WAY too long to answer (much more than 2mins.), and I got 3/4 wrong. Anyhow, can someone suggest shortcuts to answering the below? anything other than having to plug in several numbers, etc. They're all out of the OG 11th, btw.
Thanks.

All DS

119. Is 2x-3y< x^2?
1. 2x-3y=-2
2. x>2 and y>0

139. If x does not equal -y, is x-y/x+y >1?
1. x>0
2. y<0

140. In the rectangular coordinate system, are points (r,s) and (u,v) equidistant from the origin?
1. r+s=1
2. u=1-r and v=1-s

For this next one-- can someone pls tell me why B and not D is the answer.

146. Is n an integer?
1. n^2 is an integer
2. sqr. root of n is an integer

119)
#1. 2x-3y=-2, and value of x is not known. But since 2x-3y<0 and x^2>0, this statement is sufficient (assuming, of course, that x is not an imaginary number, in which case x^2 < 0)

#2. x>2 and y>0. Also sufficient. Try plugging in numbers.

Answer should be D.

139)
#1. x>0. Insuffiencient
#2. y<0. Sufficient.

Answer should be B.

140)
#1. r+s=1; does not say anything about u and v. Hence insufficient.
#2. u^2 + v^2 = (1-r)^2 + (1-s)^2 = 2-2(r+s)=(r^2 + s^2). Insufficient.

Combining the two, we get u^2+v^2=r^2+s^2. Answer C.

146)
True. D should be the answer. Both seem sufficient. What is OE?

119. Is 2x-3y< x^2?
1. 2x-3y=-2
2. x>2 and y>0


(D) Both are sufficient.

1. x>0
2. y<0


(E)
I. Insufficient -- Try {5,2} and {5, -4}
II. Insufficient -- Try {10, -9} and {10, -1}

Combining, still insufficient, use examples from II.

This has been explained before.

2. sqr. root of n is an integer


(B)
I. Insufficient. n^2 = 8, gives n = sqrt (8) which is not an integer.
II. sufficient.

A)D
1) Suff. square is positive hence greater than negative number
2) Put values and u will see 2x-3y<x^2

B)E

C) C

1) r+s =2 not suff. Don't know anything about u,v
2) u=1-r v=1-s
Equidistant from origin then
r^2 +s^2 = U^2 +v^2
r^2 +s^2 = r^2+s^2+2-2(r+s)
2-2(r+s) = 0
Not suff dont know what r and s are.

Both
r=s = 2 hence 2 becomes 0 proved

D) B
1) n^2 = 10 Hence n not an integer
2) SqrN = 10 , Hence N = 100 Integer. Suff
