From statement 1) we get 2 possibilities of types of values of r & s;
case I: r and s are integers: lets say r =2 then s = 7 therefore 2<n<7 and as n is given as an integer then n can take values such as 3,4,5,6 so n can take any of these 4 values.
Case II: r and s are not integers: lets say r = 1.5 and thus s will be 6.5. now 1.5<n<6.5 thus n can be any of 2,3,4,5,6 so n can take any of the 5 values.
Hence this statement 1 is insufficient because it cannot give us a single answer.

From statement 2) r and s are not integers
Clearly insufficient

Combining 1 & 2 we get that case II is valid here, hence n can take 5 values only.
Thus correct option is C

Hi Anurup,

This question can be solved by TESTing VALUES (the approach vishalbalwani used), so I won't rehash any of that work here. In the future, you will likely receive more of a response to your questions if you post them in the appropriate sub-forum. For Example, the DS forum can be found here:
