IMO B

Plugging in the values -

1) x< 3 can be -8 y < 2 can be -8 ...so xy = 64 ...not suff

2) 1/2<x < 2/3 and y = 8 or -8

taking max x = 2/3 xy can be -16/3 or 16/3 ...both are less then 6

B
1.
1.1 x=-10, y =-10, xy=1000>6
1.2 x= 1/2, y = 1/2 , xy=1/4 <6, insuff.

2. maximum x = 2/3, and maximum y =8, so max xy=16/3 <6. suff
