Given: Either A or B is positive or both A and B are positive.

is A < B ?

St1: A < 1 --> A = 0 or negative integer. I believe 0 is not positive, it is just non negative. So B has to be > 0. Hence A < B. Sufficient.

St2: Clearly Insufficient.

Answer: A

(1)Since A is integer ..it could be 0 or any neg. value.
as stem says either from two is positive then B must be a +ve integer.
so A<B....suff...

(2) no info about B...A could be +ve or -ve.
insuff...

Ans A

Explanations:-



lets see the statements--
1. A<1
The least possible positive integer is 1, so if A<1, B will be positive and >0..
so A<B
Suff

2. \(A\neq{0}\)
A can be anything positive or negative..
Insuff

A
