Statement 2 is alone enough

1 is not sufficient as Value of y can be (-.5),(-.4) etc

From 2
y is negative
x cannot be positive as x+3 is in 3rd quadrant
Hence this is enough to get the answer

From 1 we will get that x lies in 2nd quadrant. But we don't know about y.
Since y+1 >0
Y>-1
So we can not determine where y lies

From 2 we know that y is negative
And x+3<0
Which implies x<-3
So both x and y are negative which means (x, y) lies in 3rd quadrant
