if x and y are integers, is x>y ?
1. x+y>0
2.$$y^{x}$$<0

statement 1 is not sufficient as it gives multiple combination

statement 2 : says y has to be negative but it does not have any restriction on x

suppose y = -2 and x = - 2 : $$(-2)^{-2}$$ =$$\frac{-1}{4}$$ and x is not greater than y

combining 1 + 2 : we know that x has to greater than y

IMO - ANs = C
