NEW question

to find probability of \(abcd>0\)

Statement 1: From this we know that one number is negative but others can be positive or \(0\). Hence \(abcd\) can be positive or \(0\). Insufficient

Statement 2: Nothing mentioned about \(a\) & \(d\). Insufficient

Combining 1 & 2: we know only 1 number is negative and as \(bc>0\) so both cannot be negative or \(0\). hence \(a>b>c>0\) and \(d<0\).

Therefore \(abcd<0\). Sufficient

Option C
