Hi, Difficulty level: 600 With reference to below figure (one of the possible cases): Attachment:
xy.jpg [ 3.64 KiB  Viewed 11645 times ]
Using (1), XY = 3, Y can be anywhere in the plane. Insufficient. Using (2), OY = 1.5, radius of the circle is 2. Thus OY is less than the radius of the circle. Thus, Y lies inside the circle. Sufficient. Answer is (B), Regards,

Ok B is defintely sufficent but vvhy cant A be sufficient
this is hovv I vvorked it
since X is inside the circle  the value of X 0 .... 1.9 since radius is 2
novv
(1) The length of line segment XY is 3. implies
Yx =3 if X =0 minimal Y is 3 so it lies outside
case 2 is maximum (1) The length of line segment XY is 3. YX =3 Y1.9 =3 Y=4.9 Y still lies outside
so VVhy cant A be proven or sufficent

Hi, I will discuss one possibility for (1): The diameter of circle is 4, If X & Y can lie within circle on the diameter, both can lie inside the circle. Otherwise, as stated previously Y can lie outside. Thus, statement (1) is insufficient. Regards,

Hello, Guys! I think there may be information missing, since for the 2nd statement to solve the question I'd have to assume also that the points X, Y and O are in the same plane, but I believe this is not writen nor implyed in the question.
The plane in which lie the points X and Y is not necessarily the same plane of the whole circle, even though a few points of the circle may be on the plane.
What do you think? Hope I'm not bothering you with nonsense. Best regards!

What do you think? Hope I'm not bothering you with nonsense. Best regards! This is the case when you can safely infer from the stem that all points are in the same plane. Anyway, on the GMAT you won't have a question with some points in one plane and some other points in some other plane.

Quoting  Page 24 GMAT 13th Edition Review last sentence  : "All figures lie in a plane UNLESS OTHERWISE INDICATED" I thought really long about this question until I looked it up here and afterwards found this sentence. Clarifies a lot...

(1) The length of line segment XY is 3. (2) The length of line segment OY is 1.5.
Given: X and Y lie in a plane, X lies inside the circle with Center O and radius 2 Required: Does Y lie inside the Circle? Statement 1: The length of line segment XY is 3. The radius of the circle is given as 2, hence the longest line in the circle will be the diameter, with length = 4 The line XY may be fully in the circle or may be partially contained. Attachment:
Question1.JPG [ 13.49 KiB  Viewed 4630 times ]
Hence INSUFFICIENTStatement 2: The length of line segment OY is 1.5. This means that the distance OY < radius of the circle Hence Y will be inside the circle. SUFFICIENT
