Is x greater than y ?

(1) 3x = 4y
(2) x =k/3, y =k/4, and k > 0

Statement 1: $$3x=4y => \frac{x}{y}=\frac{4}{3}$$

if $$x$$ and $$y$$ are positive then $$x>y$$ but if $$x$$ & $$y$$ are negative then $$x<y$$. Insufficient

Statement 2: as $$k>0$$ so both $$x$$ & $$y$$ are positive. Divide $$x$$ by $$y$$ to get $$\frac{x}{y}=\frac{4}{3}>1=>x>y$$. Sufficient

Option $$B$$
