**Question: 37**

**15.** If a > 0, which of the following statements must be true?

A. a2 > a

B. a > 1/a

C.

D. 2a > a

E. 1/a < 1

**Correct Answer:** D

**Explanation:**

D. A lot of these answers look true. However, if you let a equal 1, or a number less than 1, you realize that most of them become false. This question is an old SAT trap; numbers between zero and one (such as fractions) behave in funny ways. The only statement that is true for all positive numbers is Choice (D): Twice any positive number must be bigger than the original number.
