If X>1and Y>1 , is X>Y ?
Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (2) ALONE is not sufficient
Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient
BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient
EACH statement ALONE is sufficient
Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient
Please help me understand the solution for this Question.I marked it E, but answer is A.
we have X>1 and Y>1
stmnt1 - X^0.5>Y => squaring both sides we have X>Y^2 so X>Y as both are >1. Hence Suff
stmnt2 - Y^0.5<X => let Y = 25 and X = 20 then Y^0.5 = 5 < 20 but Y> X
if Y = 25 and X =36 then Y^0.5 = 5 < 36 but Y< X. Hence insuff
