(C) for me

I prefer an approach with XY plan

x*y>0

From1
x-y > -2
<=> y < x + 2

This means that the points (x,y), represented by this inequation, are situated "bellow" the line y = x+2 (Fig 1).

We can be:
> partially in the cadran 1 (x>0, y>0)
> smally in the cadran 2 (x<0, y>0)
> partially in the cadran 3 (x<0, y<0)
> wholly in caran 4 (x>0, y<0)

INSUFF.

From2
x â€“ 2y < -6
<=> y > x/2 + 3

This means that the points (x,y), represented by this inequation, are situated "above" the line y = x/2+3 (Fig 2).

We can be:
> partially in the cadran 1 (x>0, y>0)
> partially in the cadran 2 (x<0, y>0)
> partially in the cadran 3 (x<0, y<0)

INSUFF.

Both (1) and (2)
o y > x/2 + 3
o y < x + 2

We are only in cadran 1. (Fig 3)

SUFF.
