we can find the value of x;
either -x => 6
hence, x <= -6

or, -x <= -6
hence, x => 6

from the second eqn we know that y^2 has to be +ve. Therefore x is -ve, therefore x has to be less than -6
Therefore B is greater

Carcass I cannot send msg, nor use the preview tool in the text box instead on pressing the button I get the color choice option

1st statement is enough to ans the question. The 1st statement alone gives ans D as x can be less than -6 or more than 6 however since we are also given with 2nd statement x can be only less than -6.
We have to take into account all the informtion given prior to the quantities we are comparing.
