The first choice doesn't give enough information about x and y (or x + y). Either one of them can be 0 and other positive or both could be positive... many possiblities. BUT the second choice leads you to see that x + y is less than -1. So for x + y + z > 0 to be true, 'z' has to be greater than 1.

From A)
x = 1 y = -2 z = 0.5
Z > x+y+1 because 0.5 > 0 and also x+y+z > 0 but z < 1
x = 1 y = -2 z = 2
Z > x+y+1 because 0.5 > 0 and also x+y+z > 0 but z > 1
So we cannot say for sure

From B)
x+y+1 < 0
or X+y < -1
since x+y < -1 then to make x+y+z > 0 z has to be greater than 1

So B is sufficient.
