Imp inference :- n itself is in unit value

(1) When n is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of m.
We know n is itself exact unit value and if rounded to nearest unit it will remain itself
But it is given to be equal to m, so n=m
suff

(2) When m is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of n.

n is exact unit value, but we cannot say the same for m
say m = 3.7... nearest unit = 4, so n =4
but both can be 4 also

(1) When n is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of m.
(2) When m is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of n.

Question stem:- n=m? (Y/N)

st1:-
Given,when k is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of n.
Suppose k=1.7, then n should be 2.
When n is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of m.
n=m=2
Hence sufficient.
st2:-
Given, when k is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of n.
Suppose k=1.6, then n=2,
When m is rounded to the nearest unit, the result is equal to the exact value of n.
Suppose m=1.6, then n=2, so $$m\neq{n}$$ ,Not sufficient.

But when k=1.6, then n=2 & when m=2 then n=2, so m=n; sufficient.

Ans. (A)
