A for me.

stmt 1: z(xy-z) = 0
Since z is a positive integer, xy = z. Sufficient.

stmt 2: clearly insufficient.

In the equation z(xy-z)=0, can't z=0 or z=xy. This would give two different values. This is where I am confused.

z cannot be 0 since the question stem says that z is a positive integer. Zero is neither positive or negative.
