I would go with E too. We don't know whether x and y are fractions or not.

[quote="Balvinder"]Is xy > x/y?
(1) xy > 0
(2) y <0>x/y. If x=2, y=1/3, xy<x/y. INSUFF.
(2) y being negative in this case doesn't really tell you much and the sign is irrelevant. INSUFF.

Taking the two statements together we know that y is negative, so x must also be negative. But again, the signs of x & y are irrelevant. We need to know whether one of these is a fraction. So the answer is E.
