1. 7^(x+2)> 9800

or 7^x * 7^2 > 9800
or 7^x > 9800 / 49
or 7^x > 200 ------> 7^x > 100

Therefore , sufficient.

2. 7^2X > 100,00

or (7^x)^2 > 10000
or (7^x)^2 - (100)^2 > 0 ----> a^2 - b^2 >0
implies 7^x > 100 or 7^x <-100

Therefore not sufficient.

Ans : A

Is it D?
(1): suff
(2): (7^x)^2>100,00 so 7^x>100. 7^x cannot be negative
