1) [x] =1
2) [2x]=1


1) \([x] =1\)

\(x = 1\)

\([x+1]= [1 + 1] =2\)

Hence I is Sufficient.

2) \([2x]=1\)

\(2x = 1 => x = \frac{1}{2}\)

\([x]\) is the least integer greater than of equal to \(x\). Therefore \(x = 1\).

\([x+1]= [1 + 1] =2\)

Hence II is Sufficient.

Answer (D)...

Hi,

From St(1), we have 0 < x <= 1 => least integer of x+1 = 2 Definite answer.

From St(2), we have 0 < x <= 1/2 => least integer of x+1 = 2 Definite answer.

Answer: (D).

Thanks.

Let us analyze each statement

Statement 1:
\([x]=1\)
\(0<x<=1\)
\(1<x+1<=2\) (Adding 1 throughout the inequality)
We know that x+1 will be greater than 1 and less than/equal to 2. So the least integer greater than or equal to \(x+1\) is 2.
Hence sufficient.

Statement 2:
\([2x]=1\)
\(0<2x<=1\)
\(0<x<=0.5\) (Dividing by 2 throughout the inequality)
\(1<x+1<=1.5\) (Adding 1 throughout the inequality)
We know \(x+1\) will be greater than 1 and less than/equal to 1.5. So the least integer greater than or equal to \(x+1\) is 2
Hence sufficient

Answer D

Hit kudos if you like the explanation :)
