Thanks

(1) w-z > 2. The range of a set is the difference between the largest and the smallest elements of the set, since the difference of some particular two numbers are already more than 2 then the the range must also be more than 2. Sufficient.

(2) z is the least number in S --> just says that from four unknowns z is the smallest one (obviously one of the unknowns would be the smallest one, what difference does it make to know that it's z?). Not sufficient.

Hope it's clear.
