[quote="ConkergMat"]If x#-y, is x-y/x+y > 1?

1.) x > 0
2.) y 1 to be true:

(I) x - y and x + y need to have same sign
(II) abs. value of (x - y) needs to be greater than abs value of (x + y)

(1) x > 0

for y>0 f 1

=> A insufficient --> D insufficient

(2) similar argument for y B insufficient

with (1)&(2) combined:

f > 1 if x > |y|
f C insufficient
