(1) The sides of Q have the same length.
(2) The diagonals of Q have the same length.

from one ( it is either a rhombus or square)......not suff

from two

it could be a rectangle or a square

both together

it is a square ........suff C is my answer

3) If the price of a magazine is to be doubled, by what percent will the number of magazines sold decrease?

(1) The current price of the magazine is $1.00.
(2) For every $0.25 of increase in price, the number of magazines sold will decrease by 10 percent of the number sold at the current price.

number sold at current price = x

current price per magazine = y

if price became = 2y what is decrease in x

from one ......not suff

from two

no idea about current price ....insuff

both together

current price is 1 thus increasing it to be 2 means 0.25*4 increase

thus the number sold wil decrease by 10%*4 = 40%

C is my answer

23. S is a set of integers such that
i) if a is in S, then â€“a is in S, and
ii) if each of a and b is in S, then ab is in S.
Is â€“4 in S?

(1) 1 is in S.
(2) 2 is in S.

from one

1 , -1 is in S ...NOT SUFF

FROM TWO

2,-2 IS in S and -2*2 = -4 is in S........SUFF

MY ANSWER IS B

19. Does x + y = 0?

(1) xy<0
(2) x2 = y2

FROM STEM

X = -Y ( IE : SAME ABSOLUTE VALUES AND DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS )

FROM ONE

XY HAS DIFFERENT SIGNS ..NOT SUFF

FROM TWO

/X/ = /Y/ .........NO IDEA ABOUT SIGNS .........NOT SUFF
