Hi,

Are there DS problems where statement 1 is "ALWAYS YES" and statement 2 yields an "ALWAYS NO"? In this case, which would be the correct answer?

Thanks.

Hi,

If I understood you properly then my ananlysis is below.

Question: is x > 5?
STAT1 something
STAT2 something else

Now, if STAT 1 is giving you that x > 5 for ALL the conditions
Then it is SUFFICIENT

if STAT2 is giving you that x NOT > 5 for ALL the conditions
Then is is SUFFCIENT

Answer will be D in this case.

The whole point in solving for a DS question is that whether you are able to find out the answer to the question with the given options.
What i mean is if the question is asking if x >5?
then if you are able to prove that x > 5 always then it is sufficent
also, if you are able to prove that x NOT 5 ALWAYS then this is also sufficent.
The conclusion is, by suing the options given you SHOULD be able to asnwer the question asked in the problem.

Hope it helps.
Good Luck!

Will never happen on the official question :)

The two statements will be consistent. Always.

Suggestion: Avoid the source if you see such a thing.
