I have a doubt in Data sufficiency section?Suppose the question is like this.
Question - What is the value of x?
(A) x^2 - 5y +6 = 0
(B) y =1
With the help of both the equations, we can find out that value of x would be wither 3 or 2.
Then what would be the answer for t...

x^2 + 1 = 0
X^2 = -1
x = +- i
what is the value of x now ??
Ps:- We can "solve" the equation ...but we cannot "determine" the value of x .....i hope i havent confused u
Thus x^2 = -1. Which means x = root (-1) = i.
Correct me if I am wrong.
I also marked the option which says that it can not be answered even with the help of both options.
But i have seen at two places in IMS section tests where they they say you can find the value of x.
For instance in DI sectional tests of IMS - Test 3 of PART-C
They have marked th...
