can the x component or y component of any vector be greater than the magnitude of that vector? explain. ( just writing a math equation is not an explanation )

Magnitude of the vector = square root of (x^2+y^2)

Hence neither x nor y can be greater than square root of (x^2+y^2) . At the most it can be equal, when one of the components is zero.
