I n^2 > 1
II n - n^2 < 0
III 2n - 1 > 0

A. I only
B. II only
C. III only
D. I and II only
E. none



I. True for all values of n except 1

When n = 1 ; n^2 = 1

II. True for all values of n except 1

When n = 1 ; n - n^2 = 1 - 1 =>0

III True for all values of n

Hence the correct answer will be (E)

Note: n is positive but we don't know whether it is an integer or fraction.

I. n^2>1. NOT necessarily . let x be 1/2.

II. n - n^2 <0. Let x be 1/2. False.

III. 2n - 1 > 0. let x be 1/2. 2*1/2 - 1 =0. False.

Thus , none of these options are correct. This question is designed to test fractional case.

The best answer is E.
