(2) a + 0.39 < 1

Statement 1: $$a+0.41>1 =>a>1-0.41=>a>0.59$$

but $$a$$ can be $$0.6$$ or $$0.7$$. Insufficient

Statement 2: $$a+0.39<1=>a<1-0.39=>a<0.61$$

but $$a$$ can be $$0.6$$ or $$0.5$$. Insufficient

Combining 1 & 2: we have $$0.59<a<0.61$$

But $$a$$ can be $$0.591$$ or $$0.6$$. Insufficient

Option E
