1) x < x^2
2) x < x^3

S1 -> x < $$x^2$$
x = -2, $$x^2$$ = 4
x = 2, $$x^2$$ = 4
Insufficient.

S2 -> x < $$x^3$$
x = 2, $$x^3$$ = 8
x = - 1/2, $$x^3$$ = - 1/8
Insufficient.

(1+2)
x can be a negative fraction leading to a negative cube less greater than x, or a positive square greater than x.
Insufficient.
