Can someone help me answer this GMAT prep question? The OA is (D) but I can't seem to figure why (1) is sufficient. Thanks

The positive integers x, y, and z are such that x is a factor of y and y is a factor of z. Is z even?

(1) xz is even.

(2) y is even.

(1) xz is even.

(2) y is even.


Given y=mx and z=ny --> z=mnx
Q: is z even?

(1) xz even --> either z even, so the answer YES or x is even. x even z=mnx one of the multiples of z even --> z even sufficient
(2) y even --> z=ny one of the multiples of z even --> z even sufficient

Answer: D
