6. B) x = 2, -9/8 and y = 3, 5
Hence, x < y.
7. B) x = 8; y = 13
Hence, x < y.
8. E) x = -8/7, ½ and y = 7/4, 1/3
While comparing the values of x and y, one root value of y lies between the root values of x
Hence, option E is correct.
9. B) x = -3/2, -4/3  and y = 4, ¾
Hence, x < y
10. B) x = ±27 and y = 36
Hence, x < y
