From left to right, points А, В, С, D and E lie on the number line. Is the distance between A and В less than the distance between С and D?

(1) The distance between A and С is less than the distance between В and D.

(2) The distance between A and D is less than the distance between В and E.

Statement 1

The distance between A and С < distance between В and D.

Distance between A and C= Distance between A and B + Distance between B and C

Distance between B and D= Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D

Distance between A and B + Distance between B and C < Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D

or Distance between A and B < Distance between C and D. Sufficient

Statement 2

The distance between A and D is less than the distance between В and E

distance between A and D = Distance between A and B + Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D

the distance between В and E= Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D + Distance between D and E

Distance between A and B + Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D< Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D + Distance between D and E

Distance between A and B + Distance between B and C < Distance between B and C + Distance between D and E. Not sufficient

A is the answer
