(1) the product of x,y,z is odd

1) says all x y z are odd numbers. insuff
2) insuff on its own. diff combinations 1,2,3 or 2,3,4 etc possible

Together
1,3,5 is the only possible combination

Thus C

yes.
Using 1 , you will see that x,y,z have to be odd
and if the sum is less than 12(using 2)
the only combination is 1,3,5

Oh k
i got it

For statement 2 (thats how my answer was B) i was making the mistake of picking up numbers for which the product was under 12 ....(but that s like using statement 1 for statement 2)

how dumb of me

C should be the answer

thanks for the help guys

Just a small correction here :
1,3,7 is also a possible combination but with that also x=1 ...so toghether both sufficient :-) if it were asked what is the value of z than answer would be E .
