(1) 6 – y is an integer.
(2) 6 + y > 7.2



(1) y can be 2........Yes
y can be -2........No
not suff

(2) y can be 2........Yes
y can be 1.3......No as y is not ineteger

combined as we know from (1) y must be integer ,then putting any value for y in (2)
we get y>1

suff...

Ans C

I think the question is asking is Y an ineger which is greater than 1?
(1) Here, y can take any integer value and will result in integer, so Y an integer=Yes, but Y>1...no answer..hence Insuff.
(2) comes out to be y>1.2...so y > 1 yes but is it an integer...don't know..Insuff....

Combine (1) and (2) y = ineger and y>1...suff...
Answer = c

I dont think that combining Eq 1 and 2 leads to y >1. Instead it is y >=1.
Hence the answer should be E

1 says y is an integer
2 says y>1.2
So both combined y is an integer>1

gmatbusters Bunuel : The question says is integer y > 1. If it is like that, then B should be the answer.

Can you advice, where I am getting wrong.

No, the stem does not say that y is an integer. The question ask: is y an integer? and is y greater than 1?


Thank You.
