Is x >3

(1) (x-1)^2 > 4 --> $$x-1<-2$$ or $$x-1>2$$ --> $$x<-1$$ or $$x>3$$. Not sufficient.

(2) (x-1)^2 > 9 --> $$x-1<-3$$ or $$x-1>3$$ --> $$x<-2$$ or $$x>4$$. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Intersection of the ranges from (1) and (2) gives: $$x<-2$$ or $$x>4$$, so $$x$$ may or may not be greater than 3. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.
