If u < v < w and x < y < z, is v < y?
(1) u < x
(2) w < x
For v < y any of the following conditions is necessary
a. w < x
b. w < y
Statement 1) u < x
Possibilities are as follows:
I. u < x < v < w < y < z i.e. v < y
II. u < x < y < v < w < z i.e. v > y
Since it results in both Yes and No answer statement is INSUFFICIENT.
Statement 2) w < x
Possibilities are as follows:
I. u < v < w < x < y < z i.e. v < y
i.e. only one conditions.
Also, this statement matches point ‘a’, hence it is SUFFICIENT.
Answer (B).
