Re: If x^2 – 5x + 6 = 0, then x = ? [#permalink]
x^2 - 5x + 6 =0
(x-3) (x-2) = 0

Statement 1 : Doesn't give any info on answer choices, Insufficient.
Statement 2 : x is not eqaul to 2, Therefore x=3. Sufficient.

Answer Option B is correct

(2) x ≠ 2

x can either be 2 or 3.

St 1 is clearly not sufficient.

St 2 says x is not 2, therefore, we can conclude that x is 3
