If xy < 3, is x < 1?
1) y > 3
2) x < 3
Statement I is sufficient:
If y is greater than 3 then x has to be less than 1 for the product to be less than 3. x can be a negative number or a positive fraction.
Statement II is insufficient
x = 1.5 y = 1.5 ------ NO
x = 0.5 y = 1.5 ------- YES
Since x can be greater than 1 or less than 1 hence we are not sure.
Answer is A.
