Here is what I am thinking:

Question is asking if x and y are both positive or both negative.

stmt 1: insuff b/c it says nothing about the sign (+/-) for x and y

stmt 2: insuff b/c it says nothing about the sign for x and y

stmt 1 & 2:

stmt 1 can be rewritten as: x+2>y

stmt 2 can be rewritten as: x+6<2y which is also: x/2 + 3 < y

combine the stmts to get: x/2 + 3 < y < x+2

therefore, if x is positive, y must be positive

or if x is negative, then y must be negative

Answer is C

What about A,

let's say X=Y so the sign should be +or- in that case, only statement A alone is sufficient, no need for additional calculation

any suggestions
