1. x = y + 1
2. (x + y)^2 < (x - y)^2

#1
x=y+1
value of x is dependent on y
so y can be + or -ve or 0
and value of xy can be +,-ve or 0
in sufficient

#2
x + y)^2 < (x - y)^2

value of y has to be -ve to be true and x as +ve
so xy <0 sufficient
IMO B

1 x = y +1
values can be positive, negative or zero. in sufficient

2
since x-y portion is bigger, the signs are different hence this is sufficient
