As all we're given are equations, we'll work with them.
This is a Precise approach.

(1), (2) without additional information about X, this is unhelpful (consider negative vs. positive X).
Insufficient.

Combined.
Substituting (2) into (1) gives Y-X > X+Y which simplifies to X<0. Since X+Y=40, this implies that Y>40, meaning our answer is NO.
Sufficient.

(C) is our answer.
