From the question we can predict statement 2 > statement 1 statement 1 = \(\sqrt{5^2}\)) = 5 Statement 2 = \(5 \sqrt{5}\) = 5 * (integer >2) ; which is greater than 5

Hi @carcass. I wonder why I click on an option (A,B,C,D). The webpage does not indicate whether I'm wrong or correct. It is only after I reload the page that the result comes out. On gmatclub.com, immediately I chose an option, The result comes out. I suggest that our site use MATHJAX so that we can enter mathematical symbols more easily and quickly. I would like to suggest that we have an LIVE preview for any comment we are writing, just like that in https://math.stackexchange.com/. It gives us more control over what we are writing. Best regards,

Why the answer is not D. root 25 is equal to +/ 5, hence if we see + numbers surely B is greater but if we  numbers the answer reverses, so shouldn't it be D?

The \(\sqrt{x}\) symbol is always positive root. However if \(x^2=25\) then x=+/ 5. When the symbol is written it means positive root of the number.

Best regards, Thank you for the suggestions. There are explanations to this: 1. The GRE allows multiple options to answer questions. E.g. Some questions can have 8 options and 3 of them are correct. Thus the GRE prep Club timer works different from the GMAT Club Timer (though it looks very similar). 2. We do use Mathjax, but we have created some shortcuts to write it on the forum. Both GMAT Club and GRE Prep Club use MathJax.
