have you done this question before,
the question gives statement 1: as x2>y2
why are you assuming it is x^2>y^2

Somehow, I feel there is typo in the question as x2>y2 does not make any sense.

Also, the statement in yezz's explanation of fraction is not true. So long x and y are positive (whether fraction or not), x^2 > y^2 will always imply x > y.

x>y?
1)(x^2 - y^2) >0 => when x and y have differnt signs then inequality changes ,INSUFFI
2) x>4/3 does not help

Combine both :

since from 2 we know x>0 ,i.e,x>4/3 , x >y from 1)
being fraction or not does not matter since 1) has 21 possibilities y >0 or y<0 but whatever may be the case y<x .

IMO C
