How to solve this tension question?

Dear all,

I am trying to figure out why the answer is T>W... do you have any idea why, if so could you please explain. Thank you.

You have $T= \frac{W}{2 sin(\theta)}$ so that T> W if $2sin(\theta)< 1$ which is the same as $sin(\theta)< 1/2$. That is true for all $\theta$ less than 30 degrees.
