(1) jk < 0

(2) j + k > 0

Kudos for a correct solution.

E. Both statements even together are not sufficient.

Statement 1 alone just implies that (j,k) lies in quadrant II or IV.

Statement 2 alone implies that (j,k) is not in III quadrant.

Statement 1 and 2 together are not enough to determine what quadrant (j,k) lie in.

1) jk<0. This means that either j,k are both positive, or both negative. Therefore, (j,k) must be in quadrant II or IV. Insufficient.

2) j+k >0. Imagining this as x and y, \(x+y>0.\), or \(y>-x\). (j,k) could be in quadrant I,II, or IV. Insufficient.

Taking 1) and 2) together: If (j,k) = (-3,5) then it's in quadrant II. If (j,k) = (3,-5) then it's in quadrant IV. Insufficient.

Answer: E

QUADRANT I = +,+
QUADRANT II = -,+
QUADRANT III = -,-
QUADRANT Iv = +,-

STMT1) FITS IN QUADRANTS II AND IV BECAUSE FOR THE NUMBER TO BE LESS THAN ZERO THE SIGNS MUST BE OPPOSITE. INSUFF

STMT2) FITS QUADRANTS I, II, AND IV BECAUSE X MUST BE HIGHER THAN Y AND IT CAN BE THE POSSIBLE USING THE QUADRANTS. INSUFF

TOGETHER INSUFF BECAUSE QUADRANTS II AND IV COMBINED STILL IS NOT ENOUGH.

PROMPT ANALYSIS

jk ≠ 0 mean (j,k) cannot lie on any axis.

SUPERSET

The answer could be any one of 1st, 2nd,3rd or 4th quadrant.

Translation

In order to get the answer, we need:
Either exact value of j and k
Any condition to reject or accept the quadrant
2 equations to find the exact value of j and k.

STATEMENT TRANSLATION

St 1: jk<0. That means, one of j and k is negative and the other is positive. Therefore 1st quadrant and and 3rd quadrant is rejected. We are stuck with 2nd and 4th quadrant. INSUFFICIENT. Option A and D rejected.

St 2: j + k >0. Definitely valid for 1st quadrant. Not valid for 3rd quadrant. Cannot say anything about 2nd and 4th quadrant.take data like (-2,4), (4,-2). INSUFFICIENT. Hence option B also eliminated.

St 1& St2: INSUFFICIENT as both the statement combined is not helping to make the decision. Option C also eliminated.

Option E
