1/p > r/(r^2 + 2)
1/p - r/(r^2 + 2) >0
[(r^2 + 2)-pr]/[p(r^2 + 2)]>0
(r^2 + 2 -pr) / [p(r^2 + 2)] >0

if p = r,
(r^2 + 2 -r^2) / [r(r^2 + 2)] >0
2/ [r(r^2 + 2)] >0
if r or p >0, then true.
from ii, we know only r is +ve. nothing about p.
so from i and ii, it is sufficient.

IMO its C

from 1 substituting p = r

we get [2/r*(r^2 +1)] ----> the value of this expression depends on r since r^2 + 1 is always +ve.
so for r>0, its +ve.

Answer is C

1) Depending whether R is greater/less than 1 the answer is yes/no => Insufficient

2) Does not tell us anything about P => Insufficient

Taken together they are sufficent since the left side is always greater than the right if R is positive.

A is my answer:

questions stem gives us r^2 + 2 >pr

statement 1. p=r,,which means that pr = r^2, then we have r^2+2>r^2 which is true.

statement 2. Does not help.

Try plugging -1 for R and then try 2.

I thought it works in all instances: for -1, you have -1^2 +2> -1*-1 which is true, for 2 you have 2^2 +2 > 2*2 which is also true.

Explain what you meant

Without knowing the sign of p/r, you can't multiply both sides and say
if 1/p = r/(r^2 +2) means (r^2 + 2) > pr. It will hold true only if p & r both are +ve.

hence the answer shd be C

Agree Answer is C :wink:

Statement 1 will fail for negative values of R
