Statement 1 alone is insufficient because nothing about R and S is given.

Statement 2 alone is also insufficient because there is no information about A and B.

The two statements combined are sufficient because if you multiply the two inequalities you know that AS>BR because B>A and R>S.

1) B > A

2) R > S

Dean paid B/S per banana

1) no info about R and S..not sufficient

2) no info about A and B...not sufficient

on combining since B>A and S<R...B/S > A/R..sufficient
C
