If xy < 5, is x < 1 ?

(1) |y| > 5 --> if y=10 and x=0 then the answer is YES but if y=-10 and x=2 then the answer is NO. Not sufficient.

(2) x/y > 0 --> x and y have the same sign. Still insufficient: if y=-2 and x=-1 then the answer is YES but if y=2 and x=2 then the answer is NO.

(1)+(2) From (2) x and y have the same sign. Now, if from (1) y>5 then 0<x<1 (in order xy<5 to hold true) and if from (1) y<-5 then -1<x<0 (again in order xy<5 to hold true). So in both cases x<1. Sufficient.
