Is $$p^2 \gt q^2$$ ?

1. $$p \gt 0$$
2. $$q \gt 0$$

If test creator reaches the stage of modifying/replacing the questions, I think this will be a good candidate.
IMO, too easy to be in the elite list (Q asks for comparison between P & Q and the options give individual information... doesn't even look like a trap). Comments?

It certainly is not a difficult question. It is part of the math tests here, but I don't think it is on an "elite list" is it? If so, where is this list?

The question tests basic understanding of properties of squares. Makes sure the person remembers that the values of each could be negative until each statement rules that possibility out.

By elite list I meant, in general, the other questions are tricky and high quality...
Ran into a similar level Q in m03 25. I suppose these questions act as a filler and give some respite and a brief break to breathe

Are positive integers $$P$$ , $$Q$$ , and $$R$$ equal?

1. $$P = Q$$
2. $$Q^2 = R^2$$

oops! sorry to create duplicate thread... will take care to search carefully in future
