For stmt2, C is 10 less than S. Now even if C gives the same percentage of discount the $ discount of C will be less than S. If C gives 2% further discount, then $ discount in C will still be less.

Or ?? any counter examples?

Not so:

Case A: C=100 Dc=12% Discount12$> S=110 Ds=10% Discount=11$ Case B: C=20 Dc=12% Discount2.4$< S=30 Ds=10% Discount=3$

Not exactly so, if we were told (or if we were able to determine from statement 1 or/and 2) that coat costs less then sweater and discount for coat was less then that for sweater, we would be able to conclude that discount in dollars for sweater is more. _________________
