As both x and y are positive integers we can multiply y on both the sides
and the inequality sign will not change.The question stem now becomes is x > y ?

Stmnt 1 > y/x is not a integer
e.g 3/2 so y>x
e.g 1/2 so x>y
Different answers so not sufficient

Stmnt 2 does not say anything about y
so it is clearly insufficient

Stmnt 1 + 2 form the examples provided above itself we can say that
both are not sufficient

Ans : E

Statement 1: y/x is not a integer
Either y has factors co-prime to x and is greater in value (eg: 17/5)
Or y is having a value less than x (eg: 1/4)
We cannot decisively answer using solely Statement A
Not Sufficient

Statement 2: x = 2
Does not give much information into the ratio x/y
Not sufficient

Using Both Statements,
y can be greater than or less than 2
Not Sufficient
