E.

the combined average of all elements of A, B and C = (MX + NY + KZ)/(M+N+K), where m,n and k are no of elements in a, b, and c respectively.

is (MX + NY + KZ)/(M+N+K)>15?

1. we donot know z amd the number of elements in each set. NSF
2. also donot know about x, y and z. NSF

from 1 and 2, we know that z (>17) > y (17) > x (10). still we miss number of elements in each set or their ratios/proportions. insuff

E.

Lets say each set only contains 1 integer.

1) x= 10 y =17
Let set c contain positive integer 1. Hence z =1
Total average = 10+17+1/3 = 33
Similarily it can be shown that average > 15
Not suff

2) x= 10 and z>y>x
Let y be 11 and z be 12
Total av = 10+11+12/3 =11
Similarily it can be shown that total av > 15

Together.
x=10 y=17 and z > y
Let z be 18
Then total av = 10+17+18/3 = 15
Hence together the total av can be >= 15 not only > 15
Not suff.
