(2) X/Y > 1



x/y > y/x when x is greater than y.

Statement 1: \(x^2 >y^2\). x can be positive or can be negative. x and y both can be positive or x is positive y is negative or vice versa. NOT sufficient .

Statement 2: x/y >1. It clearly states that y/x must be lower than 1. Sufficient.

B is the correct answer.
