well, xy+z=x(y+z)
xy+z=xy+xz
z-xz=0
z(1-x)=0

It looks complicated, only thing u need is simplifying the equation.
xy+z=x(y+z)
xy+z=xy+xz
xy+z-xy-xz=0
z-xz=0
z(1-x)=0
z=0 and x=1

I believe this question is worded incorrectly... some of the answer choices should say OR not AND.

But, yes, straight E on this one.
