1 stm: -4x + 2y < y - 3x if we add 4x to both sides and subtract both sides by y, we get y<x suff
2 stm: If x=2 y=1 w=5 then x>y wx>xy, But if x=-1 y=-2 w=-5 x>y, wx<wy insuff

Is x > y?


(1) -4x + 2y < y - 3x
\(-4x+2y<y-3x.........2y-y<4x-3x.......y<x\)
Sufficient

(2) wx > wy
wx-wy>0.........w(x-y)>0
If w>0, then x-y>0 or x>y
if w<0, then x-y<0 or x<y
Insufficient

A

Upon rearranging statement 1 we get

-x<-y => x>y

Statement 1 is sufficient

from Statement 2 we do not anything about the value of W.So clearly it is insufficient.

Hence A is the Answer.
