Given, x is somewhere between 4 and 6. Not given that x is integer.

x could be 5, in which case, x^3 is 125 OR
x could be 4.5 or 5.5, in which case x^3 is not 125

x^3 = 125 ==> x=5
(1) x>4 implies x may or may not be 5...
(2) x<6 also implies x may or may not be 5...

even if we combine both the statements, x can be any real number between 4 and 6....so it can be either 5 or any other number...
Hence, both statements combined are not sufficient.

For me 600/700 level is too high. I think is less.

What do you think??
