For the differential system u1'(t)=p(t)u2(τ(t)), u2'(t)=q(t)u1(σ(t)), t[0,+), where p,qLloc(+;+), τ,σC(+;+), limt+τ(t)=limt+σ(t)=+, we get necessary and sufficient conditions that this system does not have solutions satisfying the condition u1(t)u2(t)<0 for t[t0,+). Note one of our results obtained for this system with constant coefficients and delays (p(t)p,q(t)q,τ(t)=tΔ,σ(t)=tδ, where δ,Δ and Δ+δ>0). The inequality (δ+Δ)pq>2/e is necessary and sufficient for nonexistence of solutions satisfying this condition.
