Inequalities can be LINKED TOGETHER.
Linking together x+2y < 0 and 0 < 2x+y, we get:
x+2y < 0 < 2x+y
x+2y < 2x+y
,y < x
Thus, statement III must be true.

We can ADD TOGETHER inequalities in which the inequality symbol faces the same direction.
Adding together y y+0 < x+2x+y
0 < 3x
0 < x.
Thus, statement I must be true.

Adding together y y+x+2y < x+0
3y < 0
y < 0.
Thus, statement II is NOT true.

The correct answer is I and III.

From the inequality 0 < 2x + y < 50, we get that the sum of two x and one y is positive (0 < 2x + y). When one x is replaced with a y, the inequality becomes -50 < x + 2y < 0. We see that now the sum of two y and one x is negative (x + 2y < 0). This implies that x is positive and y is negative; and x > y.

Hope this helps!
