Given x+y < y, is x < y

x+y < y ==> x < 0

(1) y is +ve, x is negative..hence x < y
(2) x-y < x
-y < 0, y is +ve, x < y

its D

for the second option..
take for example.. x =3 and y=5 then x-y =-2 which is < 3
but if x =5 and y=4 then also it is < then x... not sufficient..

The stem has "x + y < y"

5+4 < 5 (?)
