Official Solution:

Statement (1) by itself is sufficient. It means that \(y \lt x\). A smaller amount deposited at a smaller rate will grow to a smaller figure than a larger amount deposited at a higher rate.

Statement (2) by itself is insufficient. We don't know how the interest paid on the deposits compares with the initial difference of $100.

Answer: A

Hi - I'm still not understanding why (1) is sufficient because if X=Y=0 then the answer is 'No - A's interest not > than B', but if A>0 then the answer is 'Yes'

Why can't the interest rate be 0% for both accounts and thus the answer is E?
