take x=1/2

x^2>x^3, x^2<x..insuff

2) x^2>x^4

x=1/2

i am also getting E

the original stem will be true if x>1 or if x<0

From statement 1, you get that x<1 ... so it may fall into the range above, or it might not. Insuff.

From statement 2, you get that -1<x<1 ... again, it may fall into that range, or it may not.

Taken together, you still only know that -1<x<1. Insufficient.
