hello

don 't you have an OG answer

I would have selected B but

the key is to pick negative and fractions since the stem does not specify it

x^2>2y

when x=-2 AND y=1 x<y this meets the statement condition

when x=4 AND y=1 x>y

it work both way so we can 't tell for sure whether x is bigger than y so insufficient

ST2

x^3>y^4

TELL us x is positive because odd power x^3>y^4

picking positive integer such as x=3 AND y=2

We got 27>16 THIS Meets the statement conditions

when x<y for instance x=2 AND y =3 x^3<y^4 So contradicts the statement

with fraction

x=1/2 and y=1/3 x>y meets the statement since x^3>y^4 1/8>1/81

Inverting y=1/2 and x=1/3 contradict the statement

picking x=1/2 AND y=-1/2

still in the statement

the only way would be if x =y

X=Y=1/3

1/27>1/81

hence statement two is not

since both statement don 't specify that x is different from y neither help
