If p and q are positive, is p/q less than 1?

Is p/q < 1. Since q is positive then we can multiply the inequality by it: is p < q?

(1) p is less than 4. Not sufficient.
(2) q is less than 4. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) We just know that both p and q are less than 4, we cannot say whether p is less than q. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

(1) p is less than 4: P <4 but nothing is mentioned about Q
(2) q is less than 4: Q is less than 4 and again we don't know about P

Question at hand is P/q <1
we can rewrite it as P<Q


Now combining both the statements :

P<4 and Q<4

Still nothing concrete can be said about the values of p and Q.

Answer : E

(1) p is less than 4
(2) q is less than 4


Statement 1. p=3, q=4 then yes. But if p=3 and q=0.5 then No, insufficient
Statement 2. p=4, q=3 then No. p=1, q=3 then Yes. Insufficent.
Taking both statements together we see that both Yes and No are possible. Answer E
