hi,

Required Proof : a-b+c>a+b-c => (since integers) 2c>2b (we are not multiplying with a negative sign hence no sign change) => c>b

Now to prove this

Statement 1 : B is negative
We dont know anything about C so Insufficient

Statement 2 : C is positive
We dont know anything about B so Insufficient

Combine : C positive & B Negative

Hence C > B

Sufficient

Hope this helps
