[quote="garyxb"]If X+Y+Z >0, is Z>1?

1)Z>X+Y+1

2)X+Y+1<0>0 --------(a)

(1) says that Z > X+Y+1

we get X+Y+2Z > X+Y+1

which means Z >1/2 INSUFF

from(2)
X+Y+1<0> X+Y+1 -------(II)

you get z>1

St1:
z > x+y+1
If x+y = -2, then z > -1. So z could be less than 1 or more than 1. Insufficient.

St2:
x+y+1 < 0
x+y < -1

So z > 1 in order for x+y+z > 0. Sufficient.

Ans B

--------------------
2z > 1

z > 1?

2. x + y + 1 < 0

originally given: z > -1(x+y)
original question: z > 1?
one possible solution: z > -1(x+y) > 1?

(-1)(x+y) > 1?
x + y < -1? Yes! :SUFF
