(1) \(\frac{m}{n} < 0.42\)

(2) \((\frac{m}{n})^{(-1)} > 2.5\)


1) \(\frac{m}{n} < 0.42\)

\(\frac{m}{n} < \frac{3}{7}\)

3/7 = .428

m/n < .42

is m/n < .428
yes

sufficient


2) \((\frac{m}{n})^{(-1)} > 2.5\)

n/m >2.5

m/n < 0.4

sufficient

(d) imo

D)

3/7 = 0.4285.... (recurring)

1) m/n < 0.42. Hence denominator is more than 7. (ex: 3/8). Or we take a value like 0.4 which is 2/5 and check. It is SUFF
2) m/n ^ -1 > 2.5
n/ m > 2.5
so denominator is combination of even and odd which is a non recurring decimal. so m/ n can 10/26, 2/ 5.2 so on which is also sufficient.

Hence D.

What is the OE?
