Are You Up For the Challenge: 700 Level Questions


Clearly both are insufficient individually.
1) x<0
y and z could be anything.
x=-1, y=-5 and z=-2....yes
x=-1, y=-2 and z=-5....no

2) y-x>z.....y>x+z
So x>y>x+z
x=-1, y=-5 and z=-4.5....yes
x=-1, y=-5 and z=-6.......no


Combined we get 0>x>y>x+z
The examples of statement (2) still stand
Insuff

E
