First Statement can be written as

u^3 < v, sufficient; A cube of one number (u) can be lesser than another number (v) only if u<v

Second statement can be written as

u^1/3 < v, insufficient; can be tested with ( u=9, v=5), (u=9, v=10)

I would go with A

(1)

u^3/v < 1

=> u^3 < v (Because v is positive, we can multiply both sides by v)

If u = 2 and v = 9, then the condition holds and u < v

If u = 1/2 and v = 1/3, then the condition holds and u > v

Insufficient

(2)

(u)^1/3 < v

If u = 8 and v = 3 then the condition holds and u > v

If u = 8 and v = 9, then the condition holds and u < v

Insufficient

(1) + (2)

u^3 < v and u < v^3 (By cubing both sides)

This is only possible only when u < v

Sufficient

Answer - C

Yaa now I get it you are right. In the first statement, I missed the condition of (U<1, V<1)

Guys, whats the most efficient way to conclude that:
u^3 < v and u < v^3 (By cubing both sides)

This is only possible only when u < v

thanks.
