(1) x < y

(2) q < r


Stmt 1: x< y => This gives the relation between x and y and not between y and q. Not sufficient.

Stmt 2: q<r. Again, q can be greater than or equal to y or even less than s. Not sufficient.

Combining both, x<y and q<r, value of q is again not defined. It's range is less than r but is it less than y as well? Not defined. So E.

Am I getting something wrong?

Should be E.

Statement 1:

P-------------X------Y-------Q
OR
P-------------X-------------Q----Y
Insufficient.

Statement 2:
P-------------X-------------Q--Y---R
OR
P-------------X---------Y----Q-----R
Insufficient.

Statement 1 and Statement 2:
P-------------X-------------Q--Y---R
OR
P-------------X---------Y----Q-----R
Insufficient.

Therefore, E
