1. No matter the value of y, the tenth digit of x is always 6.
2. If hundredth digit of x is 8, y could be 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 or 9.

so togather also y's value is varied and hence insufficient.

x = 0.57y9.
y is thousandth digit of x.

(1) when x is rounded to the nearest tenth, x = 0.6

let us y = 0, x = 0.5709. Hence x = 0.6
let us y = 1, x = 0.5719. Hence x = 0.6
let us y = 9, x = 0.5719. Hence x = 0.6

so x is always 0.6 if it is rounded to nearest tenths.

(2) If x were rounded to the nearest hundredth, the result would be 0.58.

let us y = 0, x = 0.5759. Hence x = 0.58
let us y = 6, x = 0.5769. Hence x = 0.58
let us y = 9, x = 0.5799. Hence x = 0.58

so x is always 0.58 if it is rounded to nearest hundredth.


hope its clear....

E. My explanation is as below.

Stmt1: insufficient as rounding to nearest tenth digit is governed purely by 100th digit and is nothing to do with thousandth digit.

stmt2: If rounding to nearest hundredth digit increases the value of digit by 1 then the thousandth digit can be any value between 5 and 9 inclusive. Hence, insufficient.
