BUT HERE #2 \(2) a+b + 1 = a + b\)ITS NOT > BUT = .. SO HOW IS THAT RELATION VALID? IMO #2: a+b + 1 = a + b[/m] this can be written as: ab+1 = a+b 1= 2 ( a+b) a+b= 1/2 this would be possible when either of values of a & b are either + & ve or if one of the values of a & b is 0 and other is 1/2 ; so insufficient combining 1 & 2 :  ( a + b )+1 = a + b or say 1/2 = a+b again this would be possible when either of values of a & b are either + & ve or if one of the values of a & b is 0 and other is 1/2 ; so insufficient IMO E

Hi, Archit3110 ! Please read my solution above, and take into account that 1<x<1 implies: (a) 1<x hence x+1 > 0 , hence x+1 = x+1 (b) x<1 hence x1 < 0 , hence x1 = (x1) = 1x Then y = (x+1) + (1x) = 2 , therefore x will have infinite possible values (between 1 and 1), but y will be always 2 (when 1<x<1). I hope I could help you! Regards and success in your studies! Fabio.

Remember that equal numbers of variables and independent equations ensure a solution. The first step of the VA (Variable Approach) method is to modify the original condition and the question. We then recheck the question. We can determine whether \(a\) number is divisible by \(4\) from its final two digits. Numbers with the final digits \(16, 36, 56, 76\) and \(96\) are divisible by \(4\) and those with final digits \(06, 26, 46, 66\) and \(88\) are not divisible by \(4\). Thus, asking whether \(n\) is divisible by \(4\) is equivalent to asking whether \(b\) is odd. Since it implies that both \(a\) and \(b\) are odd integers, condition 2) is sufficient. Condition 1) There are two cases to consider. If \(a\) is an even integer and \(b\) is an odd integer, the answer is ‘yes’. If \(a\) is an odd integer and \(b\) is an even integer, the answer is ‘no’. Since it does not yield a unique solution, condition 1) is not sufficient. Therefore, B is the answer. Answer: B

Remember that equal numbers of variables and independent equations ensure a solution. The first step of the VA (Variable Approach) method is to modify the original condition and the question. We then recheck the question. There are three ranges of values of x to consider. If \(x > 1\), then \(y =  x – 1  +  x + 1  = x – 1 + x + 1 = 2x\) and we don’t have a unique value of \(y\). If \(1 ≤ x ≤ 1\), then \(y =  x – 1  +  x + 1  =  ( x – 1 ) + x + 1 = 2\) and we have a unique value of \(y\). If \(x < 1\), then \(y =  x – 1  +  x + 1  = ( x – 1 ) – ( x + 1 ) = 2x\) and we don’t have a unique value of \(y\). Asking for the value of \(y\) is equivalent asking if \(1 ≤ x ≤ 1\). Both conditions yield the inequality \(1 < x < 1\), when applied together. Therefore, both conditions are sufficient, when taken together. In inequality questions, the law “Question is King” tells us that if the solution set of the question includes the solution set of the condition, then the condition is sufficient. Therefore, C is the answer. Answer: C

Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D FYI: Tip 1) of the VA method states that D is most likely to be the answer if conditions 1) and 2) provide the same information.
