1. It only tells us - m > 3z. But, if both are negative m+3z can be negative. So, not sufficient.

2. Same reason as above. Not sufficient.

1+2. Add both sentences. We get,

z>0. Now, we know z is positive. Using, 1 we can deduct m is positive. Hence, m+z is positive for sure.

Answer = C. Both sentences are necessary.

Am I correct ? What is OA ?

You are correct! Thanks! However, I would appreciate your shedding more light on your statement "1. It only tells us - m > 3z. But, if both are negative m+3z can be negative. So, not sufficient." Please explain with a little more detail how this is so.
