1)take x=-1..

x^2>x^3 x<x^2..

take x=1/2

x^2>x^3, x^2<x..insuff

2) x^2>x^4

x=-1/2
x^2>x^4, but x<x^2
x=1/2
x^2>x^4, but x>x^2

Insuff..

i am also getting E

the original stem will be true if x>1 or if x<0

From statement 1, you get that x<1 ... so it may fall into the range above, or it might not. Insuff.

From statement 2, you get that -1<x<1 ... again, it may fall into that range, or it may not.

Taken together, you still only know that -1<x<1. Insufficient.
