Shouldn't OA be E? put M=3 and N=3 or M=3 and N=3 These two conditions will satisfy both 1 and 2. Please correct if i am doing something wrong here.

I think the OA should be E. Consider the following cases; case1:
given m<N^2 is M<N
(M=1,N=2) , (M=2,N=4) and (M=N=5)
All satisfy the the given condition hence not sufficient
case 2: Given M ≤ N
(M=2,N=4) , (M=2,N=4) and (M=N=0)
They All satisfy the the given condition hence not sufficient
Combining 1 and 2;still not sufficient
Hence E

If M and N are Integers is M<N ? [1] M < N^2 [2]M ≤ N Again, if M=3 and N=3 And M=3 and N=3 Satisfying both conditions. Hit kudos if I am right and my persistence irritates you OA is still E

So, isn't OA B now? Apologies if I am doing something wrong here but I want to learn.

Let the original member amend it to the exact given by the SOURCE..

[1] M < N^2 [2]M ≤ N 1.  m=1 ; n=2 > m<n^2 ; m>n  m= 2; n1 > m>n^2 ; m<n > no suff. 2. m≤ n > n≤ m≤ n > [1] (n≤ m) and [2] (m≤ n) [2] is clearly suff. to answer the question. > ans = B
