Absolutely, E. Took 2.5 minutes to solve though. Number plugging is the key.

1. x +ve -> integers [4-2]>1/[4-2], but (3-2) = 1/(3-2) Insufficient

2. y -ve -> integers [2-(-1)]>1/[2-(-1)], but [0-(-1)] = 1/[0-(-1)]

Now, it gets tricky. Together, use both integers and fractions

[2-(-1)]>1/[2-(-1)]. However, [0.3-(-0.2)]<1/[0.3-(-0.2)]

TAKEAWAY: Start by proving insufficiency with integers only first, then move to fractions/Zero plugging if need be.

The OA here is incorrect.

DS - If negative answer only, still sufficient. No need to find exact solution.

PS - Always look at the answers first

CR - Read the question stem first, hunt for conclusion

SC - Meaning first, Grammar second

RC - Mentally connect paragraphs as you proceed. Short = 2min, Long = 3-4 min
