Contradictory Results from 2 statements  [#permalink]

Hi,

In the case of an Is question, eg: is \(x>0\) if the 2 statements give me the following conclusions:

1) Yes ( \(x>0\) )
2) No, ( \(x<=0\) )

Hence although both statements are individually sufficient (D) they offer contradictory answers. What should be done in such a scenario?

the answer ofcourse would be D..
but will you get such a question in actuals... NO
Any source giving you such question are not likely to be very reliable..

On the GMAT, two data sufficiency statements always provide TRUE information and these statements never contradict each other. So, for example, you cannot have x > 0 from one statement and x <=0 from another. Such a question would be considered flawed by GMAT standards.
