is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?
STATEMENT (1) T < S but we don't know anything about F and G suppose F = 14 G = 7 T = 2 S = 4 then \(\frac{T}{S}\)<\(\frac{F}{G}\)is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?NO
if F =14 G = 7 T =12 S = 3 then \(\frac{T}{S}\)>\(\frac{F}{G}\)is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?YES
so, this statement is INSUFFICIENT
STATEMENT (2) F > G but we don't know anything about T and S suppose T =14 S = 7 F = 3 G = 2 then \(\frac{T}{S}\)>\(\frac{F}{G}\)is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?YES
if F =14 G = 7 T = 3 S =2 then \(\frac{T}{S}\)<\(\frac{F}{G}\)is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?NO
so, this statement is INSUFFICIENT
combining STATEMENT (1)&STATEMENT (2) we know T < S and F > G now if T = 2 S = 3 F = 12 G =3 then \(\frac{T}{S}\)<\(\frac{F}{G}\)is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?NO
if T = 12 S= 3 (since T < S) F =4 G =2 then \(\frac{T}{S}\)>\(\frac{F}{G}\)is \(\frac{T}{S}\) > \(\frac{F}{G}\) ?YES
so, combining both statements is INSUFFICIENT
E is the correct answer

Is \(\frac{T}{S}\)\(\)>\(\frac{F}{G}\)? (1) T<S Nothing about F and G to find which fraction is greater. INSUFFICIENT! (2) F>G Nothing about T and S to find which fraction is greater. INSUFFICIENT! (1) + (2) If T=1, S=2, F=4, G=3, then \(\frac{1}{2}\)\(\)>\(\frac{4}{3}\)? NO If T=4, S=3, F=1, G=2, then \(\frac{4}{3}\)\(\)>\(\frac{1}{2}\)? YES Different possibilities. INSUFFICIENT! IMO answer is option E

We are to determine if T/S > F/G It is worth noting that there is no definition of the values of T, S, F, and G. This means that the denominators S and G can assume the values of 0 which will make the T/S or F/G undefined.
1. T<S not sufficient, because no information is provided about F and G. 2. F>G not sufficient, since no information is provided about T and S.
1+2 still not sufficient because we don't know whether the signs of F, G, S, and T, which is very important when dealing with inequalities. In addition, there is no information given in connection with the relationship between F and G with T and S. This means we can choose infinite number combinations of F, G, S, and T which will lead to T/S > F/G and also F/G>T/S.
Answer is therefore E.

Is T/S>F/G? (1) T<S Since there is no information about signs of T & S T/S & F/G are unknown NOT SUFFICIENT (2) F>G Since there is no information about signs of F & G. T/S & F/G are unknown NOT SUFFICIENT Combining (1) & (2) (1) T<S Since there is no information about signs of T & S T/S & F/G are unknown (2) F>G Since there is no information about signs of F & G. T/S & F/G are unknown IMO E

Is T/S > F/G? (1) T < S Nothing is given about F and G i.e. no relation between F and G or about their signs(+/). Also, there is no relation between F/G and T/S. INSUFFICIENT. (2) F > G Nothing is given about T and S i.e. no relation between T and S or about their signs(+/). Also, there is no relation between T/S and F/G. INSUFFICIENT. Together 1) and 2) Attachment:

Is T/S >F/G ?
We don't have any info about T, S, F, or G, so work with (1) & (2) (1) T<S > T/S <1, but no info on F/G > (1) is not sufficient
(2) F>G > F/G >1, but no info on T/S > (2) is not sufficient
(1) & (2) T/S > F/G (<1 from (1)) > (>1 from (2)), so this inequality is wrong, we have definite answer > (1) & (2) are sufficient > answer C

#1 no relation or value of F&G ; insufficient #2 no value or relation with T/S insufficient from 1 &2 we cannot conclusively say that T/S>F/G as no relation provided among all 4 characters IMO E
Is T/S>F/G?
(1) T<S
(2) F>G
