Statement 1: Insufficient

|y|<1. This means that \(-1<y<1\)

|x| <2. This means that \(-2<x<2\)

This is clearly insufficient.

Statement 2: Insufficient

y>0

x is not 0: Can be either positive or negative, greater than y or lesser than y.

Statement 1 and 2 together

y>0 and \(-1<y<1\). This means that \(0<y<1\)

x is not 0 and \(-2<x<2\). This means that \(-2<x<0\)and \(0<x<2.\)

Hence putting them together also insufficient. Hence the answer is E.
