it says x-y or x+y cannot be 0.

i and ii, each, alone cannot answer the question. togather also not suff..

we know x = +ve and y = -ve.
suppose x = 5, y = -3, ok, it is true that (x-y)/(x+y)>1.
if x = 5, y = -8, ok, it is true that (x-y)/(x+y)<1.

1) Lets assume x=5 y=2, then expression >1
Or x=5 and y=7, then expression <1
Not sufficient

2) Lets assume x=5 and y= -2, then expression >1
Or x=5 and y= -7, then expression <1

Combining both, not sufficient either as examples in (2) meets both requirements of (1) and (2).
Hence E
