seconded. condition 1 tells us x>y, condition 2 tells us x>0. For getting xy<0 , we need to have y<0 even after cobining two statements. therefore E.

Agree with E

(1) gives x>y
(2) gives x>0

Combining, still cannot answer the question

E is wrong!


Statement 1 - not sufficient. X and Y could both be either positive or negative. X could be positive and Y could be negative and the other way around.

Statement 2 - not sufficient. No comments on this one.

Combine: sufficient. Think about it, if we know that x>0(2), y must be>0(1). Thus, it is sufficient to state that xy is not < 0.

(1) is a valid conclusion ONLY IF x and y are both positive or both negative.
