      This question doesn't comply with the economic assumption of consumer rationality i.e A consumer prefers more to less. Unless if this goods X and Y are LUXURY goods in which consumers tends to buy more as price rises to show off wealth. The demand curve for this kind of goods will be an abnormal demand curve(drawing down from right to left like a supply curve)
