first of all. perfect squares: 0, 1, 4, 9, 16....
0 is a positive even integer
1.
assume y=4 and z=0 then yes w=4 perf. sq.
assume y=12 and z=4 then no w=8 is not a perf. sq.
not suff.

2.
z is even. there is no info about y and it can be anything
refer to the 1st statement again not suff.

combined. not suff.

1: can be 12+4 thus 12-4 is not a perfect square. Or can be 10+6=16 and 10-6=4 Insuff.

2: no help.

z is even in the cases we worked with in S1. Thus Insuff for both.
