If a, b, c, and d are positive integers, is (a/b) (c/d) > c/b?
(1) c > b
(2) a > d

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
C. BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.
D. EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

(a/b) (c/d) > c/b ---> ac/db > c/b ---> a > d

(a/b)(c/d) > c/b
or, c/b(a/d-1) > 0
and since a,b,c,d are positive integers,
a/d>1
or, a>d

Hence, B is sufficient.

abc - bdc > 0
bc (a-d) > 0
b & c being positive , ensuring that a-d>0 is required

B tells us that precisely.

Hence B
