statement one alone: ((3^41)-(3^31))/3 is greater than what..? Statement ONE alone is NOT sufficient. Eliminate options AD
statement two alone: ((7^31) -(7^2))/7 is greater than what...? Statement TWOalone is NOT sufficient. Eliminate options B from BCE.

Statements one and two together (option C):
which is greater ((7^31) -(7^2))/7 OR ((3^41)-(3^31))/3?

Please press kudos, if this has helped you.

In General,

You can solve it via AP

first term = 3^31 and last term 3^41
common difference = 3

find the total number of terms for both cases

You will see that the second one is much more than the first one
