Qn 1:

From stmt 1, y could be any values for ex 2*3=6 or 3*2=6 so insuff.
From stmt 2, we do not have any values for x so insuff.
Combing x can be any values between -4 and -5 which means y could also take any value to maintain xy=6 hence insuff.

So E.

Qn 2:
E.

Qn 3. um of 8 wrestlers = 1120
Sum of 10 wrestlers = 1430
Sum of 8 wrestlers + 2 new wrestlers = 1430
2 new wr = 310
The least possible could be even 1 pds or even less than that.

Qn 4. Price of the product is 400

Qn 5. 2.5 to 5

but only 1 value b/w -4 and -5 gives a terminating decimal for y ! all others are non-terminating !

a very good point christoph, but a slight mistake...

we must see that is there more than one value in the given range, i.e. -4 to -5, which is a multiple of 6.
-4.2 , -4.8
hence the answer here is E
but ur point was very correct....thanks for the enlightenment.
