it is asking whether x > y.

each is not sufficient.

Together: x < 0 and x > -y, then -y < 0. then y > 0.
so x > y is always wrong. so Suff.

Is x-y > y-x ???

1) x+y > 0

FROM STEM

IS X-Y-Y+X>0 ie is 2x-2y>0 thus is x-y>0 thus is x>y

from one

x+y >0 .........not suff

both

x is -ve and x+y is positive then y>x ...suff my answer is C

From Stem:

x + x < y + y; 2x > 2y;

x > y ---U

1) Insufficient.
2) InSufficient.

Combining:
since x is -ve y has to be +ve to satisfy (1) x+y > 0. SO y > x

C.
