B.
a) x=4 y=1/2 YES but x=1/2 y=4 NO so INsuff.
b)x-y>0 then x>y so x/y>0 SUFF

Another way:-

Stm 1: xy>1 then x/y>1/y meaning x/y could be less than or greater than 1 depending whether y is <or> 1.

Stm 2: same as UMB.

Thanks.

Correction: It shall be x/y>1/y^2 in stm 1. Then also logic is same.
