product of the two smaller numbers?

(1) The largest number is 12.
(2) The average (arithmetic mean) of the three numbers is 20/3

D.

X<Y<Z, sqrt(XYZ) = Z => XY = Z

1) Z=12 so XY=12 sufficient
2) X+Y+Z=20 sufficient because say Z is the largest number, so Z=20 - Y -X
therefore it must be that XY=20 - Y - X, it works for X and Y being equal to 2 or 6
so XY=12 and no others
