If we modify the original condition and the question, we get n=100/k, k=100/n. If we substitute this into n<k?, the question becomes n<100/n?, n^2<100=10^2?, n<10?. Hence, the correct answer is A.

- Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and independent equations ensures a solution.

simplify the eq: it comes down to n = 300/k

1. n<10 to make that happen k>30
2. k>4 so k=5 n=60... keep going and k=31 n<10 so we have multiple values

Simplifying question stem:
\(n=\frac{(4*3*5*5*5)}{(5*3)k}\)
\(n=\frac{100}{k}\)

Statement 1: n<10
Rewrite question stem as \(k=\frac{100}{n}\)
For 0<n<10, k will be more than n.-----------Sufficient

Statement 1: k>4
Rewrite question stem as \(n=\frac{100}{k}\)
For k=100, n=1.................Is n<k? Yes
For k=5, n=20................Is n<k? No----------Insufficient

Answer is A
