(1) a > 10
(2) 20 > a > 0

(4a + 5)/a
4 + 5/a

(1) if a>10 then 5/a will always be less than 1/2 hence m will always be 4
Sufficient

(2) if a is between 0 and 20 then m will take
5 when a is between 5 and 10
5 when a is 5
4 when a is between 10 and 20
...

not sufficient

A

$$\frac{4a + 5}{a}$$ = 4+$$\frac{5}{a}$$
S1 - a>10
$$\frac{5}{a}$$<0.5
Value of the expression to nearest integer can be found.
S2 - 20 > a > 0
If a>10, $$\frac{5}{a}$$<0.5 and if a=5, $$\frac{5}{a}$$=1; two different answers.
Not sufficient.
