Section 4 math
Given that x > x^n >1

Given that n is any natural number, give one possible value of x that satisfies the inequality.
(Note: Gridded Number Answer, no multiple choice options are given)

My confusion comes from the fact that n cannot be ANY natural number becuase if n equals 1, then x is equal to
x^1. Perhaps I don't remember the problem correctly, but clearly it
implied that one was a possible value of n, which invalidates the question.

Please respond if I have misinterpreted, or if you took the PSAT and can alleviate my confusion, or remember this differently.

Are you sure it was not:
x [raised to the power of 'n'] x 1
