I think the answer is C.

st.1
p > r+s
r+s = 2 than p > 2, but we still donÂ´t know the value of q.

st.2
q > r+s
r+s = 2 than q > 2, but we still donÂ´t know the value of p.

Both statements together prove that p and q are more than r+s.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

first and second statements insufficient.

Togther
let r+s = -10
p = -6
q = -6

p+q not greater than r+s gives a No answer, but we can easily pick numbers to get an Yes answer.

So, E.

(1)+(2) => p+q > 2(r+s)
question is "is 2(r+s) > r+s ?"
Yes if r+s >0
No if <0
