There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

Stmt 1 - Tells us that X is either -ve or +ve. Stmt 2 - Tells us that X is either -ve or 0. By combining the 2 stmt. we can only negate that X is not positive (due to stmt b) however still it can be -ve or 0. Hence E.

Thx. goldeneagle94 for pointing a mistake in my explanation. I agree with you that option E is possible if we consider that y can be 0.And we had to consider that ?

I am not completely sure if we can consider a |y| to be 0.

I have a mistake when ignore y. Yes y can be 0 and from 2) x can be +ve, 0 or -ve With 1) x can be +ve or -ve together x can be +ve or -ve, not suf Hence E
