(1) x+2>0 ...x>-2 ... Insufficient
(2) 2x>3x ... 3x-2x<0 ... x<0 .... Sufficient

In my opinion, this is not a 700 level question

(1) 3+2 >0 , -1/3+2>0 - hence insufficient.
(2) 2*(-1/4)>3*(-1/4), 2*-2>3*-3 - hence sufficient.

This is a 600-650 question.

is x<0?

1. Not sufficient

x+2 >0

x>-2

x = -1 yes
x= 16 no

2. Sufficient

2x>3x => 2x-3x>0 => -x>0 => x<0
