There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Stat1 7x-2y>0
<=> y <7>0 and y>0), in cadran III (x<0 and y<0>0 and y<0> 0, we can be either in cadran I or IV. Thus, y <0> 0 (Fig1).

INSUFF.

Stat2 -y> x
<=> y < -x

Thus, we are below the line y = -x in the XY plan. We can be either in cadran II (x<0>0), in cadran III (x<0 and y<0>0 and y<0> 0, we are necesserary in the cadran IV with y < 0 (Fig2).

SUFF.

-y< x ; y can also be negative where |y|<x or simply be positive

and from both 1 & 2 does not constrain y hence E. Simply draw the lines y = 3.5 x and y= -x and the area between them is the solution and in both cases Y is not bounded to the first quadrant. hence E.
