Thanks for the solution
but my question is, after simplifying the equation it gives the result of same as statement 1. then how statement 1 alone is sufficient to answer the question being asked.
Hi mohdabbas5,
I know why you were confused.. Upon simplification of question stem, you get (x/y) <-1/2.... that is the question they are actually asking... if you know that x/y <-1/2 or >-1/2, you can answer the question either with a 'yes' or a 'No'...
' yes' or 'no' is what you need from the choices.. choice 1 directly answers your question... by using choice 1, you can say "yes, the value is less than -1/2"... but only using choice 2 you can't answer the question.... so A is the answer...
Now coming toyour confusion, it's tricky but also silly.. ?Usually we are accustomed to solve the given question stem, then apply the truth from the given choice and get to a common point where the question stem matches your calculation.. but here, ther's no need tocalculate anything.. it's directly given and you were confused....
For e.g.., the question stem is "Am I human?"
Option 1: "I am human"...
The question is so simple that u never encountered such questikn and the answer is too obvious.. so you were confused somehow...
Thanks
Hopethe explanation helps... But please don't yawn..?
