Y and Z are both positive numbers less than 1. Is Y > Z ?

(1) The hundredths digit of Y is greater than the tenths digit of Z and less than the hundredths digit of Z. (2) The thousandths digit of Y is greater than the hundredths digit of Y and less than the tenths digit of Y.

1) Insufficient Let Y =0.x2 where x is some digit. Z = 0.14 In this case we dont know the tenth digit of X. Hence insufficient

2) Insufficient Let Y = 0.312. This does not tell us anything about Z

1) + 2) Sufficient The answer is YES

Let Y = 0.524 Z = 0.13x

Hence C

To find the answer it is imp to know the the relation between tenths digit of Y & Z. from both statement together we can get it. Hence =>C

+1 for C.

Let Y = 0.cde Let Z = 0.rst

Statement I: d > r ; d < s : Insufficient as we need relationship between c and r. Statement II: e> d;e < c : Insufficient as we need relationship between c and r.

I and II together : c > e > d > r => Y > Z. Hence C
