There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

I think the ans is A Statement 1 is sufficient as the condition a+c not equal to b is possible only is a is negative. Statement is insufficient as it gives no info about b and c

Statement (1) is insufficient since it just gives us a value a is not equal to: a≠b-c (but a could be anything else than b-c ! including c-b which could be negative or anything else)

Statement (2) is insufficient since it just gives us the sign of a: a<0 (but a could be any negative number! including -|b-c| and all the other negative numbers)

(1) and (2) are insufficient together too since a could be any negative number different than b-c (if b-c is ever negative, which we don't know and in which case |a|=b-c makes no sense).

But if (1) was a+b≠c, then we would have been able to answer the question (answer would have been (C))

Statement (1) is insufficient since it just gives us a value a is not equal to: a≠b-c (but a could be anything else than b-c ! including c-b which could be negative or anything else)
