If m is an integer, is $$7^m > 1000$$?

After resolving the question stem the question basically ask is m>3 where m is an integer means m=4,5,6...any integer value >3

S1: On solving we get 7^m=1020.8 as it >1000 but m being an integer the least possible value for 7^m to be >1000 is 2048 where m being an integer so suff...
S2: On solving we get 7^m>142.85 m could be 3 so no m could be 4 yes
insuff..

(1) $$7^{(m-2)} = 7^m - 1000$$

(2) $$7^{(m + 1)} > 1000$$

question: is (7^m-1000)>0

(1) tells us 7^m/7^2 = 7^m - 1000

for any integer value LHS will remain + i.e. greater than 0..hence sufficient

(2) 7^m - 1000/7 >0

7^m - ~142 > 0
for m = 3, 7^m-1000 is negative
for m = 4, 7^m-1000 is positive

Hence not sufficient
