Given that g = 2h, column A is equal to 2h/1 and column B is equal to 1/h. Then, since h is a positive integer, A is always greater than B.

Re: g and h are positive integers such that the value of g is tw [#permalink]
Hello, I am a bit confuse. I started with h=0.5g instead of g=2h, i think they are the same.
Quantity A is g/1, Quantity B is 1/h, which in my case is also equivalent to 1/0.5g or 2/g (Am i right?)
If g is 2, A will be 2, B will be 1 (A is greater)
If g is 1, A will be 1, B will be 2 (B is greater).

Why isn't the answer D then?

You took the equivalence in decimal and that i swhere you went wrong..

You have to ensure h or 0.5g is a positive integer.
When you take g=1, h becomes 0.5*1=0.5, which i snot positive value..

g=2h and h a positive integer means $$g\geq{2}$$
