ya man from the combined effect u can border or set the upper limit and lower value of the x-------1<x<3. as x can be either an integer or a fraction,as there is no indication about the property of x. so if x is an integer the value of x is 2 but if x is not an integer x can be 2.5 or 1.6 etc-------got it?

in ds do not be fast but be alacrity.........

Statement 1 - insufficient
Statement 2 - insufficient
1 & 2 together: we know that x is between 1 and 3 1<x<3, but since x does not have to be an integer we cannot find the exact value of x.
