D) II and III
E) I , II and III
I chose A, but the official answer is different

I agree with A

c/d<1 - it can be 1 if c=d, if c/d =1 then 0 <= will fail, so II cannot be.

c^2 + d^2 > 1 is false, because
say c=.25 & d=0.5, c/d= .5 and is true for the inequality.

(1-c/d) is greater than or equal to zero

The only way 1 - c/d can be equal to 0 is if c=d, hence II is not a possibility.

Read the statement carefully. I don't think that you can assume that C can equal D given the stated rule that 0<(1-c/d)<0. This implies that C must be another value besides D. In addition, c must also be < d. Also implicit in the statement given above, D is a positive number therefore C must be a positive number less than D - which makes c/d a fraction - a fraction is less than 1. Therefore, II must be true.

I don't think III MUST BE TRUE. C and D do not have to be integers - just greater than 0. If C = 1/3 and D= 1/2 then c/d = 2/3. And C^2 = 1/9 and D^2 = 1/4 combine the two fractions and of course the sum is less than 1.

read carefully. The stimulus states that 1 - c/d is greater then OR EQUAL to zero.
