Hi..
when we look at the equation, what stands out is-
1) If both s and t are of same sign, the answer to the Q is NO, as both will be equal.. and suff
2) If both have different signs, answer is YES... SUff..
lets see the choices..
1) s + t < 0
both s and t can be negative.. or both can be of different sign.. insuff
2) st < 0
both s and t are of different sign .. suff as per the condition 20 mentioned above..

could you please elaborate it for me ...??
Hi Rohit,
lets see what the statement tells us..
ㅣs – tㅣ > ㅣㅣsㅣ - ㅣtㅣㅣ...
1) If both s and t are of same sign, the answer to the Q is NO, as both will be equal.. and sufflets take s as 4 and t as 5..
|4-5|>||4|-|5||..
|-1|>|-1|... 1>1.. NO
lets take them -ive now s=-4 and t=-5..
|-4-(-5)|>||-4|-|-5||..
|1|>|-1|... 1>1.. NO
so whatever values we take for s and t, if they both are of same sign, the two sides will be equal..
so our answer for [b]ㅣs – tㅣ > ㅣㅣsㅣ - ㅣtㅣㅣ is NO.. and thus suff..[/b]
2) If both have different signs, answer is YES... SUff..say s=4 and t=-5..
|4-(-5)|>||4|-|-5||..
|9|>|-1|... 9>1.. yes..
you can take any values for s and t but of different signs , you will always get YES for
ㅣs – tㅣ > ㅣㅣsㅣ - ㅣtㅣㅣ..
so what do we require to know, just that the signs of s and t is same or different and we will be able to answer for
is ㅣs – tㅣ > ㅣㅣsㅣ - ㅣtㅣㅣ?now lets see the statements..
1) s + t < 0We cannot say anything about signs
both s and t can be negative.. or both can be of different sign.. insuff
2) st < 0both s and t are of different sign, then only the product will be <0..
-a*-b= +ab
+a*+b=+ab, but -a*+b=-ab
.. suff as per the condition (2) mentioned above..
I hope it helps
