Question is m > n or is m -n > 0
STAT1
n-m +2 > 0
m - n < 2, So, m-n can be > 0 or can be < 0 also
So, INSUFFICIENT

STAT2
n-m-2 > 0
=> m - n < -2
=> m -n < 0 for sure
=> m - n is NOT > 0
So, SUFFICIENT

So, Answer will be B
Hope it helps!

As the Variable Approach Method states, we can modify the original condition and the question. Then the question becomes n<m?, n-m<0?. If you look at the condition 2), we have n-m>2>0. The answer is no and the condition is sufficient. Thus, the correct answer is B.

- Once we modify the original condition and the question according to the variable approach method 1, we can solve approximately 30% of DS questions.

Is \(m > n\) ?

(1) \(n – m + 2 > 0\)
(2) \(n – m – 2 > 0\)


We can rephrase the question: "Is \(m – n > 0\) ?" 

(1) INSUFFICIENT:  If we solve this inequality for \(m – n\), we get \(m – n < 2\).  This does not answer the question "Is \(m – n > 0\) ?".
(2) SUFFICIENT:  If we solve this inequality for \(m – n\), we get \(m – n < -2\).  This answers the question "Is \(m – n > 0\) ?" with an absolute NO.

The correct answer is B.

Is m > n ?

(1) n – m + 2 > 0
m -n < 2 NS.
(2) n – m – 2 > 0
m-n < -2 => m-n < 0 => m < n..
Suff.
B.
