(1) say nothing, insuff
(2) it's correct if both x and y are positive
but not for negative x and y
Ex: 0<-1/-2<1 , but -1>-2
---> insuff

1 and 2
can't assure whether both x and y are negative or positive.
insuff

(1) is asking whether xy is positive. For xy, (--) and (++) can work so we need more information - insufficient.

(2) as mentioned by others, (++) and (--) can work but we need more information too - insufficient.

TOGETHER: Still insufficent because (--) and (++) can both work - E.

If the question told us that both x & y were <b>positive integers</b>, then I'd go with D.
