II.. multiplication of below 1 will always result in less than 1.

III... Subtraction of less than 1 amounts/ numbers will answer in less than .

Answer is I as only Denominator lower than numerator will give results more than 1 if both numerator and denominator are between 0 and 1 . It satisfies the given .

Post subject:  12 Days of Christmas GMAT Competition - Day 5: If p, q are each greate

from given info we have following possibilities

0<p < q <1
or 0<q<p<1
1/2 , 1/3 can be used to test values
which of following may be true

I. p/q > 1
1/3 / 1/2 ; NO
1/2 / 1/3 ; yes

II. pq > 1
1/3 * 1/2 ; 1/6 <1
not possible

III. q – p > 1

1/3-1/2 ; (-1/6)
1/2-1/3 ; ( 1/6)
not possible
I only
OPTION A

 Author: sivatx2 [ 18 Dec 2022, 07:51 ] Post subject: Re: 12 Days of Christmas GMAT Competition - Day 5: If p, q are each greate We know both p and q is a fraction whose value is between 0 and 1. We need to identify at least for some cases, if option I, II, and III are true.I. p/q > 1Let p = 1/2 and q = 1/4.Then p/q = 2.For the above example p/q > 1.So keep options that include I. So, eliminate B.II. pq > 1Multiplying 2 fractions both 0 1Even if we assume q is larger than p, substraction will result in diminishing the number.Example, let's assume q = 9/10 and p = 1/10.q-p = 8/10.So, never the result will be greater than 1. Eliminate options that include III. D is gone.So, the best answer choice is A.

Take close to largest value for q = 0.9999999999 and close to smallest for p = 0.0000000000001If you subtract, the difference is still not greater than 1 because q itself is smaller than 1 and p is greater than 0.Answer: A. Only I

 Author: Lizaza [ 18 Dec 2022, 08:15 ] Post subject: Re: 12 Days of Christmas GMAT Competition - Day 5: If p, q are each greate This task is rather straightforward - we need to deal with the options one by one.I. Whenever $$p>q$$, we will always get $$\frac{p}{q}>1$$For instance, $$\frac{0.8}{0.5} = 1.6$$Therefore, option I may be true.II. We have two decimals below 1. And when we multiply any number by a decimal less than 1,we always decrease this number, no exceptions: for instance, $$10*0.9=9$$, where (obviously) $$9<10$$.Therefore, by multiplying one number below 1 by another similar number will only further decrease the first multiple.That is to say, it is impossible to go beyond 1 by multiplying two number less than 1.Thus, option II may not be true.III. To see the solution to this option, let's compare the new data to the original task:We know that $$q<1$$. Now we are told that $$q-p>1$$, or $$q>1+p$$.Can this inequality be true? $$1+p < q < 1$$ Of course not, unless P is negative (which is not the case).Therefore, option III may not be true.So, the answer is A. I only.

I, II, and III------------------------------IMO Ap/q >1 , eg - p=3/5, q=2/7, p/q = 21/10pq cannot be greater than 1 as the numerator in both the cases are less than the denominator. so their product will also be less than 1q - p cannot be greater than 1 as both the numbers are less than 1 and their difference can either be another fraction or a negative number.

 Author: kratos0906 [ 18 Dec 2022, 08:41 ] Post subject: Re: 12 Days of Christmas GMAT Competition - Day 5: If p, q are each greate I- Let, p=0.5 , q=0.25so, p/q=2>1. Hence, I may be true. II- When two numbers between 0 and 1 are multiplied the result will always be a number between 0 and 1. III- Difference between two numbers between 0 and 1 will always be a number between 0 and 1. Hence, IMO A.
