Is \(k = 2m\)?


1. \(km < 0\)

2. \(k + 2m < 0\)




1) km<0
This means both k and m are of DIFFERENT sign.
But k=2m requires both k and m to be of SAME sign..
Ans NO
Sufficient
2) k + 2m<0..
If m is -ive and equal to 1/2 k, it is possible
Even if k < 2m say k = -8 and 2m is -4, it is possible
Insufficient

This is a delightfully awesome question. May I ask from where did you get it?

Hi Bill,

Truthfully I can't totally remember where it came from. It might have been from the GoGMAT online platform or my AdmitMaster course... But I can't say for sure. In any event, I'm really glad you enjoyed it and it helped in your study.

By the way, congratulations on getting accepted at HEC Paris. I hope your other applications will go well too and give you several options to choose from!

Hadrien
