Stmt 2 is sufficient as follows:

LHS and RHS can be rearranged into (a/d)(c/b) > (c/b) As c and b are both positive (you don't need Stmt 1 for that), they can be cancelled out from both sides - which leaves us with a/d > 1 ??

This post received KUDOS

\((\frac{a}{b})(\frac{c}{d})=(\frac{a}{d})(\frac{c}{b})>(\frac{c}{b})\) Since a, b, c, d are positive, so both sides can be divided by \((\frac{c}{b})\) \(\frac{(\frac{a}{d})(\frac{c}{b})}{(\frac{c}{b})}>\frac{(\frac{c}{b})}{(\frac{c}{b})}\) or \(\frac{a}{d}>1\) or a>d

(1) c>b (2) a>d

Given that a,b,c,d, are all positives; so we can take a deep breath of relief and carry on with this question because now we can apply any operation on the inequality without worrying about the sign reversal and other such restrictions (1) c>b (2) a>d

Simplify the original equation and see what the question stem reduces to :- \(\frac{a}{b} * \frac{c}{d} >\frac{c}{b}\)

\(\frac{ac}{bd}>\frac{c}{d}\) {\(\frac{c}{b}\)will get cancelled on both the LHS & RHS}

\(\frac{a}{d}>1\)

\(a>d\)

SO THE REAL QUESTION IS :- IS \(a>d\)

(1) c>b Doesn't tell about a and b ; INSUFFICIENT

(2) a>d Tells us that a is always greater than d SUFFICIENT

ANSWER IS B

Hey, guys, So, I’ve decided to run a contest in hopes of getting the word about the site out to as many applicants as possible this application season...
