Need to repost.

So far though: let x equal the smallest in A and y equal teh smallest in B.

Thus A's range is: g-x=r
B's range is: h-y=s

So the real question here is, is x>y?

So far i don't think S1 is suff.

Range - Min - Max

Statement I :

Say R for A = 10
Max - Min = 10

Say R for B = 12

Max - Min = 12

Insufficient

Statement II :

Say Max for A = 15

15 - Min = Range

Say Max for B = 14

14 - Min = Range

Insufficient

1 + 2 :

A : 15 - 10 = 5 (Min
Min = 25

B : 14 - 12 = 2(Min

(c) - can't be this easy?

class A: g - r = minA
class B: h - s = minB

rephrase: Is g - r > h - s?

1) r < s Insuff. since we don't know g and h
2) g > h Insuff. since we don't know r and s

Both taken together are sufficient since the number on the left side will always be bigger than the number on the right side (because it's first component is bigger and the second one, which gets subtracted, smaller).

I think it's C.
