    Is the range of the integers 6, 3, y, 4, 5, and x greater
    than 9 ?

    (1) y > 3x
    (2) y > x > 3

    integers are 3,4,5,6,x,y
    range = largest-smallest
    a)y>3x. if x=1, y>3 let it be 4. Range = 6-1 = 5<9
    if x=1, y>3 let it be 100 range = 100-1 = 99>9
    insufficient
    b)y>x>3
    x=4,y=5 => range = 6-3 = 3 <9
    x=10,y=13 =>range = 13-3=10> 9
    Insufficient
    a&b together) y>3x and x>3
    it means x is atleast 4 and thus y>12 or y is atleast 13
    range=y-3 = as min y is 13, y-3 is minimum 10 thus range >9
    Sufficient
    IMO C
