Is it (D)?

Is 0<x<1?

(I)x^2 < x^(1/3) - raise both sides to the power 3: x^2/3 < x

(II)x^3<x^(1/3) - same: raise both sides to the power of 3: x^9 < x

"A" for me.

state 1: x = 1/8....satisfies.....x = -1/8 doesn't ....so x has to be between 0 and 1...suff.

state 2: x = 1/8....satisfies....x = -8...satisfies....insuff.

Is 0<x<1?

(I)x^2 < x^(1/3)
(II)x^3<x^(1/3)


for 0<x<1 , in either cases cubing the inequations will help.
on cubing, (I) becomes x^6 < x which is true for all 0< x< 1
(II) becomes x^9 < x which agian is true but almost a repetition of (I) . Therefore (I) alone is sufficient .

In this case don't you think D should be the answer??

A
x^9<x is true not only for 0<x<1, but also for x<-1 that's why 2) Insuff

I guess the question of -ve numbers doesnt arise. We have to assume real numbers only. And in that case, statement 1 is sufficient. No need for statement 2. But isnt statement 2 sufficient by itself too? Any comments?
