.


Here the no. seconds in an hour = 60 * 60 = 3600 sec

no. of days in one year = 365 days = (365 *24 * 60 * 60) seconds (I have left out the calculation)

Therefore statement 2 > statement 1

Qty B is simply no of days in 1 year which is 365. I think we should not convert it into no of seconds in 1 year. I think the correct ans should be A.

I doubt your reasoning - If you can look to official GRE question - the comparison is always with the same units.

or else the question would only put 365 for Quantity B. :-D

Hello ishank4 - A little respect to the moderator would be appreciated.

Moreover kindly share your reasoning why Option A is correct and Not option B

I addressed moderator with necessary deference. Nevertheless, I am beg pardon.

Reasoning for option A:
There are '3600' seconds in one day and '366' days in one year.
Question is asking the "the number" which is greater , hence Option A.

Ok Guys, The OA as reported in the book is clearly wrong.

It is A NOT B.

Thank you.

I still doubt, because both the quantities should have same units or otherwise stated. Moreover if some option donot have any units they are assumed to be same.

This question is a tricky question and because of the units and so end up selecting a wrong option.
