Hi,

What help are you looking for?
Can you elaborate a bit?
Is there any particular topic in which you are looking for help? Or is it in general?
DS consist of 1 questions with 2 statements. STAT1 and STAT2
If A alone is sufficient then answer is A
If B alone is sufficient then answer is B
If Both together are sufficient then answer is C
IF both alone are sufficient then answer is D
If both together are NOT sufficient then answer is E

How do you approach DS
Starting simplifying the Question statement and consider STAT1
IF (you are able to find the answer with STAT1 itself)
{
then only A or D are the possible answer choices
IF (You are able to find the answer with STAT2 also)
then answer is D
else
answer is A
}
else IF (You are able to find the answer with STAT2)
{
then answer is B
}
else IF(You are able to find the asnwer with STAT1 and STAT2 together)
then answer is C
else
answer is E

Hope it helps!
