Statement 1: $$t^{(-2)} < 1 => t^2>1$$. so we will not get any specific value of $$t$$ from this equation. Insufficient

Statement 2: $$t^{(-3)} = \frac{1}{27}$$, take the cube root ie. raise both sides to $$\frac{1}{3}$$ rd power

$$t^{(-1)} = \frac{1}{3}$$. Sufficient

1/t=?

Statement 1-
t^2< 1
=> t must be between 0 and 1.Insuff

Statement 2-
1/t^3=1/27
=>t=3.
=> 1/t=1/3.Suff.

In value data sufficiency questions, your answer should be a specific value.

statement 1 produces a range while statement 2 will yield a specific value
