GMAT club question

what if, x = 1/2 and y = -1/2 ? that makes x > y square true. Am I getting this wrong?

Thanks for your comment.

You're violating S1: \(\frac{1}{2} > -\frac{1}{2} +5\) -- FALSE

Combining 1 and 2

let x = 7 and Y = -7 then X > Y^2

let x = 1/4 and Y = -21/4 then X < Y^2

So answer is E

You must be violating S2. \(x= \pm y\). If that is a typo and you really meant \(y=-\frac{1}{4}\), then you're violating S1. I still think the answer must be C.

Am I right or am I missing something big here? Hope this helps.
