I don't know what to think about second statement !
y>0 does not provide anything useful IMO

as 2x-3y <0 then x^2 being always >0 is necessarily > 2x-3y

So i pick A

D for this one..

statement 1 is clear enough. whatever be the value of x, it will be positive.

statement 2.. whatever be the value of y, x^2 will always be greater.

Yeah, i go for D too.

twixt, Y>0 is useful:
Now you know that "-3y" only substruct from the left side.
And since x>2, you can also know that 2*x will always be less than x^2.
