Is the value of n closer to 50 than to 75?

(1) 75-n>n-50

(2) n>60

The answer given is A. But for that to be the solution, it must be stated that n is positive, which is not the case

Hi Debarpit,

Your analysis does not make sense here. Statement 1 gives us n < 62.5. Any value of n less than 62.5 will always be closer to 50 on the number line than to 75.
