(1) a < b^4
(2) a and b are both negative integers



Question: Is a > b ?

Statement 1: \(a < b^4\)

Case 1: a = 1 and b = 2 and \(1 < 2^4\) while a < b

Case 2: a = 3 and b = 2 and \(3 < 2^4\) while a > b

NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: a and b are both negative integers

there is still no ground to compare their absolute values hence

NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two statements

Case 1: a = -1 and b = -2 and \(-1 < (-2)^4\) while a > b

Case 2: a = -3 and b = -2 and \(-3 < (-2)^4\) while a < b

NOT SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option E
