A. n<0.1
B. n>0.01

S1) n<0.1
20% of 0.1 = .02, so first option is between 0 and .02
10% of (0.1+0.5) = .06 ; 10% of (0.0+0.5) = .05, so the second option is between .05 and .06
Because the range of the second option is always larger than the range of the first option, S1 is sufficient

S2) n>0.01
20% of 0.01 = .002 so the first option is from .002 to infinity
10% of (.001+.05) = .051, so the second option is from .051 to infinity
S2 is not sufficient

I get A

Yezz, how did the OA source describe C as correct? Maybe I am missing something.

A. n<0.1
B. n>0.01

I got the same answer A.

Thу question ask to find which is greatear $$0.2n$$ or $$0.1(n+0.5)$$. It is the same as to find which is greater $$2n$$ or $$n+0.5$$, or, similarly, $$n$$ or $$0.5$$.

(1) We definitely know that $$n<0.5$$
(2) We know nothing.

Must be A.

If n > 0, which is greater, 20 percent of n or 10 percent of the sum of n and 0.5 ?

Is $$0.2n>0.1(n+0.5)$$?
Is $$n>0.5$$?

(1) n < 0.1. Sufficient.
(2) n> 0.01. Not sufficient.
