clearly 1 n 2 are not suff

combining ==> x= y+2 ----1
x/y - 1 < 0 ==> (x-y)/y < 0 ==> (y+2-y)/y < 0 ; from 1
2/y < 0 ; 1/y<0
this means 1/y is negative, which means y is negative , but for x ; it can be either positive or negative from statement 1

hence IMO E

I) x-y=2

x=2+y
But we have no info about y so can't say anything about x also so Insufficient

II) x/y<1

2 cases
1) 4/5<1 both positive xy>0
2) any one is negative x/y<1 xy<0

Multiple cases-Insufficient

Combining both

(2+y)/y<1

2/y<0 so y<0

x=2+ y
If y is between -2 to 0 then x is positive and xy<0

If y is less than -2 then x is negative then xy>0

So Insufficient

Give kudos if it helps
