E it is
1/8 < n <1/6

1) n + 1/7>2/7

just tells you n < 1/7 hence not sufficient

2) n+1/10<2/5
just tells you n > 3/10 hence not sufficient

1 & 2 together tells you 3/10 < n < 1/7 is insufficient too

Hello,

If n<3/10, then n is definitely with the range such that 1/8 < n <1/6. Then the answer should be B.

Is this logic faulty?

Yes. Why cannot n be less than 1/8, so out of the range?

Thanks! Got it.
So, if the option suggested that e.g. n=1/7, then that option would be correct, wouldn't it? Because, the option is within the boundary of question steam.

IMO C !!

Combining statement 1 & 2 lead to range as 1/7<n<3/10 or .1425 < n < .3 , thus sufficient to ans.

Why E ???

Is 1/8 < n < 1/6 ?

(1) n + 1/7 > 2/7 --> n >1/7. Not sufficient.

(2) n + 1/10 < 2/5 --> n < 3/10. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) We have that 1/7 < n < 3/10 --> 3/21 < n < 9/30. Question asks whether 5/40 < n < 5/30. AS we can see, n can be greater than 5/30, so out of the range. Not sufficient.
