As per 1 1/(k-1)>0 iff k-1>0 ie k>1

Since K>1 there fore 1/k>0

from 2 K>-1 which can have positive and -ve values. Hence it is not suff to answer.

A wins.

statement 1,
1/(k-1) > 0. it implies that.. k has to be greater than 1.... which means that 1/k will be greater than 0.
statement 2,
consider k= -.9 , 1/(k+1) is greater than 0, but 1/k less than 0...... hence cannot defintly answer.
