E.

Statement1) 1<x<2 or 3<x> INSUFF.
Statement2) 1<x> INSUFF

Statement 1+2) gives 1<x<2 or 3<x INSUFF. for the same reason as Staement1.

'E'.

Stmt1: (x-3)(x-2)(x-1)>0 is satisfied for x > 3 and 1<x<2
so INSUFF

Stmt2: INSUFF

Taken them together:

x> 1 and (x-3)(x-2)(x-1)>0

x > 3 and 1<x<2

Hence INSUFF
