I would say that neither statements are necessary. Since (xy)^(2z)^3>0 = (xy)^6z>0 = x^6z*y^6z>0. X and Y will always to the power of an even number and thus will be positive.

from i

if y>0 then x and z are either both +ve or both -ve

insuff

from ii


if x>0 then y and z are either both +ve or both -ve

insuff


together

z > 0

I would go with C.

We can not assume that Z is integer, and 2z^3 is not always even. So we neen x*y to be positive to insure that the whole expression is positive.
