Hello everybody,

Very silly and simple question right here. I'm giving GRE in a few days and just wanted to clear out a small problem from my head.

Image you are given: A = 2

B = y and there are some equations regarding y that are given. In the end you find that the possible values for y are {2,3,4,5}

Do you answer <Quantity B is greater>, or do you answer <The relationship cannot be determined from the information given> ? I have done dozens of prep tests and hundreds of exercises, yet haven't encountered a corner case like this.

Logically, the answer must be that the relationship cannot be determined, because there are 3 cases where the answer is B, and one case where the answer is <The two quantities are equal>. I guess <Quantity B is greater> actually means <Quantity B is strictly greater>... Right?

Thanks a lot for your time and have a nice day, Diamondo
