Should be A.
1/k-1 > 0 => denominator is +ve => k-1 >0 => k>1 => 1/k >0

1/k+1 > 0 => k+1 > 0 => k>-1 => 1/k may or may not be >0.

I agree with u Economist.
If we consider second case/ statement, we get k>-1 , which means k can be a positive or a negative number, depends whether it falls into (-1,0) or [0, any +ve no).

I think it is D

1) see explanation above

2) means: k+1 > 0 thus k > -1 => k must be 2 or greater (as 0 and 1 are not allowed per instructions). For all those cases 1/k > 0 => sufficient

If K>-1, it can be -0.8 since K is not necessarily an integer. Therefore, statment 2 is not sufficient. OA is A.

It's A.

1. 1/k>1 suff.
2. 1/k>-1 not suff. (it does not say that k must be an integer)
