A. While I am not fancy with the whole calculation editor and character thingy...I can be really concise in my explanation, and I hope it brings someone solace. In statement A, one could have many possibilities from negative infinity to positive infinity...but, it can only be fulfilled when X>Y.

As for statement 2, sure this clears the restriction on X being negative, but in doing so Y cannot be 0.. since these are consecutive integers. So, there are roughly a quadrillion and change iterations that either arrive at X being less or more than Y.

Statement 1, or answer A.
