If w and c are integers is w > 0 ?

(1) w + c > 50

(2) c > 48

I have a doubt the ans.

Statement (1) is not SUFFICIENT

w + C > 50

Pick the numbers w=3 & C= 50 where W>0

Now if i pick W=-3 & C=60 , the statement still holds good but in this case W<0

Hence we cannot determine if W<0 or if W>0

Statement (2) is not SUFFICIENT

as it does not reflect anything about the value of W.

Even if we take these two statements together, we cannot determine if W>0 or not.

(i)Pick number since C>48 therefore pick C=49

which mean W+49>50 therefore W has to be greater than or equal to 2

(ii) If C = 52 then W could be W=0, W>0 or W=-1 hence insufficient.

As per me the answer should be E. Please do let me know your thoughts.

Cheers!!
