This is basically asking: Is X < -1 OR Is X > 1

1)

X^2 is only greater than 1 if x < -1 or x > 1

SUFF

2) x can be 0.5 = no, x can be 5 = yes.

NOT SUFF

we have to find out x^2-x > 0 i.e. either x > 0 Or x>1

1) x^2-1>0 x> -1 OR x> 1 insuff

2) x> -1, x = 0, x = 1.... so inuff

1. if x^2 is greater than 1, x^2 is always not a fraction. so suff.

A.

Work out the problem
x^2 > x
x^2 - x >0
x*(x-1) > 0
Find the solutions:
Solution 1: x>0 and x>1 => x>1
Solution 2: x<0 and x<1 => x<0

Re-write the question:
Is x>1 and x<0?

(1) x^2 > 1
This means x>1 and x<-1
SUFFICIENT

(2) x>-1
INSUFFICIENT
