C

Each statement alone is insufficent as the sign of q in 1 and p in 2 is unknown, but you can deduce from two statements that

p + q > 2 (r +s)

Thanks.

Was the 2 intentional? If so, what's the significance?

answer is E.

take p=q=r=s=-4

then both 1&2 hold, but stem doesn't

take p=q=10 r=s=4
then 1&2 hold and stem also...

hence insufficient.
