Tried searching for this but couldnt find it...

is x<y?

(1) 1/x < 1/y

(2) x/y < 0

St1) 1/x < 1/y

x and y can have sign or different signs

Case a: If x and y have same signs

1/x < 1/y

[highlight]can we cross multiply ?[/highlight]

y>x

Case b: if x and y have different signs

x has to be negative and y has to be positive in this case

thus , y> x

[highlight]

example : -(1/3) < -(1/2)

on cross multiplying -2 > -3[/highlight]

Thus 1 can be sufficient...

St2)

x/y < 0

Thus x and y have different signs....

Hence insufficient

I get A but OA is C.... Please help !!!
