1. 2x-3y =-2
2. X> 2 and y>0


D

Statement 1
any square value is >= 0 hence x^2 > 2x-3y

Statement2

for x>2 , X^2 >2x, 2x-x^2<0
for y>0, 3y >0

therefore 3y>2x-x^2

Will go with D .

1) 2x-3y = -2
A square of any number is > 0 hence 2x-3y<x^2

2) x> 2 and y > 0
Putting any values for x and y and you will see that 2x-3y < x^2

How is it D?

I'm getting A

But in choice B there can be multiple cases

for example

X=3 and y=10 in this case its a Yes

but if x=3, y=1

the question becomes is X^2 > 3 we can't answer that?

Is 2x-3y<x^2?

(1) 2x-3y=-2 --> question becomes: is -2<x^2? as square of a number is always non-negative (x^2\geq{0}) then x^2\geq{0}>-2. Sufficient.

(2) x>2 and y>0 --> is 2x-3y<x^2 --> is x(x-2)+3y>0 --> as x>2 then x(x-2) is a positive number and as y>0 then 3y is also a positive number --> sum of two positive numbers is more than zero, hence x(x-2)+3y>0 is true. Sufficient.

Answer: D.

If x=3 and y=1 we still have an YES answer: 2*3-3*1=3<9=x^2.
