10^2 = 100 which is more than 99, hence the pair (99,10) does not satisfy the given condition.

Option A

99 is slightly less than 100, which has a square root of 10. Square root of 99 is therefore less than 10, so answer is B

Hi Ana4001

It is "second being less than or equal to the square root of the first", i suppose you missed out on the bold part

it means y <= \(\sqrt{x}\)

Looking at the answer choices, we see that since √100 = 10, square root of 99 is less than 10, so (99,10) cannot be the pair of numbers chosen.

Answer: A
