There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

I picked b. The stem states that m and n are greater than 0. Statement 2 says that x is greater than 0. If m, n and x are all greater than 0 the equation must be greater than 0 too. The answer is C. Where did I go wrong?

If you apply that
Question becomes
Is (m+x-n-x)/(n+x) > (m-n)/n

so

Is (m-n)/(n+x) > (m-n)/n

Stmt 1
m > n ...so numerators are positive...but X is not known to be -ve or +ve...

so NOT SUFF

Stmt 2
x >0..so Denominator on left is greater than that on right...
but Is m-n negative or positive? Not known so we can NOT tell if left > right ( example here is 2 < 5 but -2 > -5... so we need to know the sign)
