Three points T, U and V on the number line have coordinates t, u, and v respectively. Is T between points U and V?(1) \(t^2<4<u^2<v^2\). Since all parts of the inequality are nonnegative, we can safely take the square root from it: \(t < 2 < u < v\). It's possible that T is between U and V, for example, if t=0, u=3 and v=4, as well as it's possible that it's not, for example, t=0, u=3 and v=4. Not sufficient. (2) \(u<0<v\). Clearly insufficient. (1) Since from (2) u<0<v, then from (1) we get \(t < 2 < u < v\). If break it: we'll get \(u<2\) (from 2 < u), \(2<t<2\) (from t < 2), and \(2<v\). T is between U and V. Sufficient. Answer: C. Hope it's clear.

St1: t^2 can take values between 0 and 4 > 2 < t < 2 When u and v have the same sign: v > u > 2 or v < u < 2 > t does not lie between u and v When u and v have oppositie sign: u > 2 and v < u < 2 or u < 2 and v > u > 2 > t lies between u and v
Illustrating the above statements: When t = 1; u = 3; v = 4, t does not lie between u and v When t = 1; u = 3; v = 4, t lies between u and v Not Sufficient.
St2: u is ve and v is positive > Clearly insufficient as we have no information about t
Combining St1 and St2: 2 < t < 2; u is negative > u < 2 v is positive > v > u > 2 As shown in St1, when u and v have opposite signs, t lies between u and v. Sufficient
Answer: C

If everyone thinks it is 700 level, I will change the tag.

Tip: I found drawing the number line here instead of trying to write out inequalities got to the correct answer much quicker. ~2030 seconds

(1) \(t^2<4<u^2<v^2\). Since all parts of the inequality are nonnegative, we can safely take the square root from it: \(t < 2 < u < v\). It's possible that T is between U and V, for example, if t=0, u=3 and v=4, as well as it's possible that it's not, for example, t=0, u=3 and v=4. Not sufficient.
(2) u<0<v. Clearly insufficient.
(1) Since from (2) u<0<v, then from (1) we get \(t < 2 < u < v\). If break it: we'll get \(u<2\) (from 2 < u), \(2<t<2\) (from t < 2), and \(2<v\). T is between U and V. Sufficient.
Answer: C.
Hope it's clear. When you take the sq rt of 4 in this, shouldn't the result be +/ 2?

Yeah, It is a medium level question. I bit of guess/application work is needed to solve this question. Mentioned question can be solved only if we were given both information A and B. So Answer C

How do I check the difficult level in terms of 660650700750 level? It just shows easy/ medium on the timer :/

It just shows easy/ medium on the timer :/ We have three grades of difficulty: easy, which corresponds to sub600; medium, which corresponds to 600700; and hard, which corresponds to 700+. You can check difficulty level of a question along with the stats on it in the first post. The difficulty level of a question is calculated automatically based on the timer stats from the users which attempted the question.
