## Inequalities Data Sufficiency

Inequalities and Data Sufficiency are a great combination. Many interesting questions have been framed in the DS format from this topic. Here is an interesting question Is a < b? 1. a^b < b^a 2. a/b > 1 This is a good question because it helps us consider several possibilities for examples. Let us start with Statement I alone: 1. a^b < b^a Now, if a … [Read more...] about Inequalities Data Sufficiency

## Number Properties Data Sufficiency

Here is an interesting data sufficiency question.How many of the numbers x, y, and z are positive if each of these numbers is less than 10?1. x + y + z = 202. x + y = 14Correct Answer : Choice A. Statement 1 alone is sufficient; Statement 2 is not sufficient.Explanatory Answer:Statement 1 : x + y + z = 20. From the question stem we know that each number is less than 10.So, x … [Read more...] about Number Properties Data Sufficiency
