Is it C?

A. insufficient on its own.

B. insufficient on its own because a zero value for x makes x/y equal to x(y+1)

therefore you need both.

For 2 we can have

x=-1 y=-2 Then x/y=-1/-2 & x/(y+1)=-1/-1 so x/(y+1) is bigger

what if x=4 y=2 then x/y=4/2 & x/(y+1)=4/3 so x/y is bigger

i think it's E
