Each of the x, y and z represents a positive digit and x + y = z. If x < y, what is the value of y?

(1) z = 9
(2) y – x < 2


(1) z = 9
Possible values of (x, y) = {(1,8), (2,7), (3,6), (4,5)}
—> Different values of y are possible —> Insufficient

(2) We do not know the value of z. So many values of y are possible—> Insufficient

Combining (1) & (2),
Since y - x < 2 and y > x
—> y - x = 1

Only possible value of (x, y) = (4, 5)
—> y = 5 —> Sufficient

IMO Option C

Calling a number a digit qualifies it to be an Integer?

Yes..
If we say a is a digit, it means a can be 0, 1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6,7 ,8 or 9 only and all these are integers too..
