1. insuff, no info about p
2. insuff, n and p can be either both positive or both negative

together from I n>-1 so n >= 0
so n is either zero or positive
and from II we know is not zero so p>0

So C.

1) n > -1. No idea about p. Insufficient.
2) np > 0. Suggest both n and p are negative, or both n and p are positive. Insufficient.

Using both, we know n is negative, so p must be negative.

Ans C
