Its A

St1: When rounded to nearest hundredth it is 0.46 SUFF
St2: thousandth digit of x is 5, but we need hundredth & tenth digit to have the answer. Hence INSUFF

Agree with A. 0.46.
This is correct way to round, but guys
I met another roundness, i.e. 0.4547 would be not 0.46 but 0.45,
really for me it's very strange, but I'm not sure which way does GMAT use. (((
Any ideas.

The rule I follow while rounding is -
If the digit to be rounded is 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5, I round the number 'down'. If the digit is 6, 7, 8 or 9, I round the number 'up'.

Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

Just look at the number right to the digit you are rounding.
