Statement 1 - not sufficient
as x> 0.6
X can be anything 1.1 or 0.7
Statement 2 - not sufficient
As x < 0.7
X can b anything 0.6 or 0.3
Combining both
0.7 > x >0.6
Still not sufficient

We need to determine whether x is between 0.5 and 0.8.

Statement One Alone:

300x > 180

x > 180/300

x > 18/30

x > 3/5

x > 0.6

Although x is greater than 0.6, we cannot determine whether x is between 0.5 and 0.8. Statement one alone is not sufficient to answer the question. We can eliminate answer choices A and D.

Statement Two Alone:

700x < 490

x < 490/700

x < 49/70

x < 7/10

x < 0.7

Although x is less than 0.7, we cannot determine whether x is between 0.5 and 0.8. Statement two alone is not sufficient to answer the question. We can eliminate answer choice B.

Statements One and Two Together:

Using the information from statements one and two, we know that 0.6 < x < 0.7. Thus, we know that x is between 0.5 and 0.8.

Answer: C

pay attention ,combining both x>0.6 x<0.7, it means that 0.6<x<0.7 and so x MUST be between 0.5 and 0.8 as the question asks
therefore the correct answer is C.
