Hi all,

I was solving DS problems from OG and was unable to understand the explanation given in the guide for the below 2 questions:

Q 84. If x, y, and z are positive numbers, is x>y>z ?
1) xz > yz
2) yx > yz

(The anwer given is E i.e. Both statements not sufficient)
If we solve both statements we'll get x>y and x>z respectively.But we can also see that xz >yx as xz and yx are both >yz. So woudn't this count for something?

Q 85. K is a set of numbers such that
(i) if x is in K, then −x is in K, and
(ii) if each of x and y is in K, then xy is in K.

Is 12 in K?
(1) 2 is in K.
(2) 3 is in K.

(The answer given is C i.e. Both statements together sufficient)
