answer: A

Set of numbers is: 2,4,6,8,10 --> 5 possible numbers
9/x > x ---> 9 > x^2
Only 2 satisfies this inequality
Thus, 1 chance out of 5

oops, I misread the question. E is the answer and I'm sure 100% this time

Set is 1 to 9.
and you can get either 1 or 2 that satisfies the equation 9>x^2
so 2/9
