Plugin values for x and y

St 1 : Plug $$x = 2 , y=1 ; x=-2,y=-5$$ and $$x=5 ,y=-5$$ in question stem

for First 2 set of values we will get NO but for last will get YES .So Not sufficient.

St2 :$$xy< 0$$ so either x or y is -ve

using $$x=5 ,y=-5$$ ,we will get definite yes . So Sufficient

Please +1 Kudos if you liked my post.
