D b < y
E b > c

Given ,

$$(\frac{x}{y})(\frac{b}{c}) > \frac{x}{c}$$

$$(\frac{xb}{yc}) > \frac{x}{c}$$

Cancel out both x and c from both sides. *** all are positive . Thus no problem in removing x and c.

Inequality becomes:

$$(\frac{b}{y})$$ > 1

b>y.

C is our answer.

simply solve for the given expression
we get b>y
IMO C
