Stat. 1

X>3/40
Since 3/40 = ~.07, => X > .07 => X > .05
Sufficient

Stat. 2

X > 3% of 50
Since 3% of 50 = 15 => X >1.5 => X>.05
Sufficient

Answer: D

Since the GMAT is an adaptive test - you are supposed to get an adaptive questions. If you answer correctly a couple of questions you will get harder and harder questions and vice versa.

If you get a very easy question on an adaptive test it can mean one of three things:

1. its a dummy question (questions that aren't scored).
2. the question is tricky. so the question is really an hard one.
3. you solved so many questiones wrong that the computer thinks your adaptive level is ~ 300 points - :cry: !!!

so i figured this was type 2 kind of question, and not a type three.
