Statement 1:
c>b-a
a>b-c --Sufficient

Statement 2:
b<c-a
a<c-b
-a>b-c --Since we don't know the sign of "a" we can't say anything. Insufficient

IMO answer should be "A"


Hi

I think the second statement says: b < c + a
So it becomes same as first statement

Is a > b − c?

1. c > b - a
This can be rewritten as a > b - c (Sufficient)

2. b < c + a
This can be re-written as -a < c - b
Multiplying by -1, we get a > b - c (Sufficient - Option D)
