B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient.

D. Each Statement ALONE is sufficient.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.


simplfy the question

(x+c)/(y+c) > x/y
we can multiply both sides by y(y+c) as everything is +ve the inequality sign wont change
y(x+c) > x(y+c)
xy + yc > xy + xc
yc > xc
y > x ( c is +ve, we can cancel out)

statement 1 : Suff
statement 2 : doesnt tell anything about x. not suff

Option A.
