1) N>50
2) N<60

Is $$7<\sqrt{n}<8$$ --> or is $$49<n<64$$.

(1) $$n>50$$. Not sufficient as $$n$$ can be more than 64.

(2) $$n<60$$. Not sufficient as $$n$$ can be less than 49.

(1)+(2) $$50<n<60$$. Sufficient.

Consider 1)+2) we have (50;60) interval.

_______49__50_______60____64

But what to do with highlighted parts?
Virtually we are asked if 49<N<64?
we miss 2 intervals: (49;50) and (60;64)
Having (50;60) we can't say that (49;64) is true.
Looks like (E).

OA for this question is C.

Question: is $$49<n<64$$? or is $$n$$ in the range (49,64), not inclusive.

(1)+(2) $$50<n<60$$ --> ANY $$n$$ (any number) from this range IS in the range (49,64), so the answer to the question "is $$49<n<64$$" is YES.

Hope it's clear.
