1) 5x + 1 = 3 + 2x
3x = 2
x = 2/3
so [x] = 0

2) 0 < x < 1
so [x] = 0

Each of the above statements are individually sufficient to answer. So answer is D

Statement 1: x=2/3 --> [x] = 0 ==> SUFF.
Statement 2: 0<x<1 --> [x] = 0 ==> SUFF.

The correct answer is D.

was expecting it to be trickier. It would have been more tricky for any value of x<0.

Ans D. 00:43 sec.

The only substance lies in this question is to rephrase
[x] = 0
into
x<0

& you have the answer & that is 'D'
