statement 1: test a decimal between 1 & 2 (ie. 1.5) you'll still get a positive
statement 2: 1.5 still works
eliminate d
eliminate c

I go for ans A, because the solution set for stat 1 is x>3 which ans the que. Stat 2 is insufficient.

Ans is E.

Consider 1st statement;
(x-3)(x-2)(x-1)>0
This is true in 4 cases:
Case 1: (x-3), (x-2), (x-1) all are > 0, which is possible if x>3 {x-3 > 0}
Case 2: (x-3) > 0 and (x-2) and (x-1) < 0 which is not possible if x>3
Case 3: (x-3) and (x-2)< 0 and (x-1) > 0 which is possible if 1<x<2
Case 4: (x-3) and (x-1)< 0 and (x-2) > 0 which is not possible if x>2 [since x-1 can not be negative for x>2]
This gives two possible answers from Case 1 (x>3) & case 3 (1<x<2). Therefore, this statement is NOT SUFFICIENT

Consider 2nd statement;
x>1
That does not tell us if x>3 or x<3, x could be 1.5, 2, 2.5 etc...Hence, this is NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining 1st and 2nd statement does not give us exact value of x. Hence, the answer should be E
