Is x > y ? or in other words is $$x - y < 0$$

IMO E.

i) $$x + y <0$$ Does not give any info about what $$x-y$$ could be. Not sufficient

ii) $$x + |y| <-1$$

if y is positive the above statement is : $$x + y < -1$$ Again not sufficient to determine anything about $$x-y$$

if y is negative the above statement is : $$x - y < -1$$ Sufficient to say that $$x - y > 0$$ is not true but we do not know if y is negative and hence INSUFFICIENT

Putting i) and ii) together does not help determine whether y is negative or not and hence INSUFFICIENT

Hence answer choice (E) is correct.
