The question is whether k>0 and k is not equal 1?

1. k>1, clearly suff.

k>1, k must be not 0, 1, -1, k must be bigger than 0, suff

2. k>-1, even combined with k is not 0 and 1, not suff. Keep in mind that k is not integer, so k can be -0.5, then k <0, but k=1, 5 then k>0. Definitely not suff

A is the best

i think its A.

From the question, you basically want to find out if k > 0. The only way stat 1 can be true is if k-1>0, i.e. k>1. Automatically, this means that k>0. Suff.

From stat 2, you know k+1>0, i.e. k>-1. Not enough to say whether k>0 or not. Insuff.

Got A too

k-1 >0 means k > 1 and 1/k is +ve

K+1 > 0 means k > -1

K is not equal to 0, 1, -1 but K can be -0.5 (K is not specified as integer)

K can be positive or negative, Insuff

Hence A

I think it's A

from (1) we got K > 1 suff
from (2) we got K >-1 therefore we can be -1/2 ,-1/3

so it's A

1. 1/(k-1)>0 k>1 so suff
2. 1/(k+1)>0 means k>-1=> insuff

Hence A
