There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

We know x < y+1 in order for result to be a positive fraction. If x = 5, y could be 5 and 5/6 < 1 but x = y or x = 5, y = 7 and 5/8 < 1. Insufficient. St2: xy/y(y-1) < 1 x/y-1 <1> y for the fraction to be less than 1. Sufficient.,

B for me

Can you explain the bold portion.

For statement 1: we get x/(y+1)<1 = x<(y+1) ..So we get x<y which is true..So shouldn't the answer be D....
