Is the value of n closer to 50 than 75?

1. 75-n > n-50

2. n > 60

Solving stmt 1. we get, n< 62.5.My thought,Ok if n=62,we know n is closer to 50,but if n=40,it is STILL closer to 50.SUFF.

Stmt 2, n=62,closer to 50 but if n=72,close to 75.INSUFF>

ANswer:A

Guys is the reasoning correct,cos the official explanation was WAY off.

Hi tejal,

wats the OA? bcoz my reasoning is as follows. IMO E is the right answer.

Stmt 1: Since it is not mentioned tat n is an integer, n can be 62.5 and in tat case n is equidistant from both 50 an d75. So "is n closer to 50 or 75 " cant be answered in such scenerio. Data insufficient

Stmt 2: if n = 61 its close to 50; if n = 65 its close to 75. hence data insufficient

Combining 1 &2 n =62.5 (n>60) is still equidistant from 50 & 75. hence cant be answered.

Pls correct me if iam wrong
