1) \(x-y>0\) -> x>y, but y may be negative, so it could be the case that \(\frac{x}{y}<0\).
2) \(xy>0\) -> both are larger than 0, therefore their division would be larger than 0. Sufficient.

B.

2) \(xy>0\)



Case 1: Take y=-4 , x=0
While x-y >0 but the x/y =0
So not sufficient

Case 2: Since xy>0
So , x and y should be either both positive or both negative
this gives a definite ans to the question , that is , x/y is always positive
Hence Sufficient

Ans :B

The question x/y>0 is equivalent to xy > 0 after multiplying both sides of the inequality by y^2. It is equivalent to the condition 2).
