I agree with Rakesh.

from statement 1, h must be less than 4.

So the value of d to the nearest tenth is 0.2. Each statement is sufficient

A) d < 0.25 means d can be 0.206 to 0.246
B) h < 5 means h can be 0 to 4

Combine both h cannot be determined

So answer should be E.

(i)d< 1/4
For this condition to suffice...h<4

(ii)h<5
Say h =4
Therefore D = 0.2

say h=3
D=0.2

So both the conditions suffice...Answer D.

This is an OG question right?

(one funny thing happened when I was typing the solution for this question...I wanted to type therefore and I started typing three dots( dots arranged as the corners of a triangle.I don't know if this the norm in other countries but it is in India...was just thinking can we have a emoticon for that.... :twisted: )

I think the answer id D because Q is asking approximated to nearest 10th
so any value from 0.206 to 0.246 will be approximated to 0.2

The answer is D

a) d=0.206 to 0.2499999..
b) h<5 ie h= 4,3,2,1,0

The question asks for the 10th digit, and from either statement we can obtained that the h (the 1/100th digit) is less than number 5. Had it been more than 5 or had it asked for the value of h, then the answer E is valid.

Hence with either statement we can get the answer.

Hence the answer is D
