(1) x is positive
Multiple values,both less than and greater than 2
Insufficient

(2) x^2 > 9
Both positive and negative are possible > 3 or > -3
Insufficient

Combining both :
A positive and greater than 3
Sufficient

Hence, C.

we are asked to determine whether x is greater than 2 .

Statement 1: x is positive. So x could be 1. NOT sufficient.

Statement 2: x^2 > 9. So, x could be +4 or -4 minimum. No specific values.

Combining both Statements :

x is positive and x>3.
