if X^3>Y^4 it means X^3 > 0 since Y^4 is always >0.
now X^3> 0 => X>0
in option D XY^2 since X>0 and Y^2 is always going to be positive.
means XY^2 cannot be <0.

hence answer is D

Its D.
Y^4 has to be =ve hence x^3 is also +ve.
so x is +ve from answer choices xy^2 has to be +ve as Y^2 will be +ve and x is also +ve.
