This is a sample data sufficiency question. It looks like a pretty simple question.
As usual, not that all of the 5 answer choices for each data sufficiency question is exactly the same. So don't even bother spending anytime reading through the answer choices. Internalize what each one represents so that you can simply look at the question, the 2 statements provided - and figure out which of those two statements provides the sufficiency information to answer the question at hand.
The main question stem presents simple question: is N between 0 and 1?
Then the first statement involves an even exponent with a claim that the resulting product is less than the original N.
The second statement involves an odd exponent and we are told this resulting product is positive.
There are definitely a lot of hints here and things to check for in this question. If you know what to check for, this question is actually super easy.
