i think its D too. in st 1 if we divide by 2 we get a>b, and in st 2 we can subs the C and still get the same thing. both statements by themselves are suff to answer the Q so answer - D.
Re: Is it true that a > b? (1) 2a > 2b (2) a + c > b +

Target question:Is a > b?
Statement 1: 2a > 2b Divide both sides by 2 to get: a > b The answer to the target question is YES, a IS greater than b Since we can answer the target question with certainty, statement 1 is SUFFICIENT
Statement 2: a + c > b + c Subtract b from both to get: a > b The answer to the target question is YES, a IS greater than b Since we can answer the target question with certainty, statement 2 is SUFFICIENT
