(E) x < 3


(x + y > 5) + (x – y > 3)

Or, 2x > 8

Or, x > 4

Thus, the correct answer must be (B) x > 4

As we know that same sign inequality can be added...

(x + y > 5)
+ (x – y > 3)

Or, 2x > 8

Or, x > 4

(A) x > 3
(B) x > 4
(C) x > 5
(D) x < 5
(E) x < 3

adding the two given equations we get,
x+y+x-y> 8 (both LHS have greater than signs they can be added at one side)
2x>8
x>4
ans B
