Re: Is x < 1? [#permalink]
Is x < 1?

1) $$x^2$$ > x
2) $$x^3$$ > 0

Considering Statement 1 alone:
$$x^2$$ > x
This is true for x > 1 and also for x < 0........INSUFFICIENT

Considering statement 2 alone:
$$x^3$$ > 0
=> x > 0, so can be < 1 and > 1............INSUFFICIENT

Considering both the statements together:
Both statements hold true only when x > 1.
SUFFICIENT.
