Its B

1. x=y^3, n >y

if y=2, x=8, n=3 eq. in question become (8/2)^3 which is not greater than 1000 but higher number make this true so insufficient.

2. x > 5y, n >x

if y=1, x=6, n=7 eq. in question become (6/1)^7 which is certainly greater than 1000. Sufficient to answer as this is true for all the other +ve integers also.

#1. Not sufficient. try with y=1;n=4 and y=2;n=10
#2. Sufficient. (x/y)>5. n>x>=5...

Agree 'B' is sufficient, same reasoning with humans.

I dont know OA

let's take 'A', using x = y = 1 and n =2 - we can't say. INSUFF.

So that leaves us with BCE

let's take B with lowest integers
y = 1, x = 5 and n = 6 which gives us
5^6 which is > 1000. SUFF.

(B)
