I think its E

1 - doesnt prove anything

2.- either x or y is negative or on the left side of 0 . Again no info.

Combining

if 2 is true then z is positive to make xyz < 0

with that we still have 2 scenarios.

Assume x is positive, then y is negative and z is positive

---------------------y-------0---------x-------------(z)
z cant lie between x and y -

Assume x is negative, then y is positive and z is positive

---------------x-------0------(z)----y-------------
z can lie between x and y

So still we have 2 options.
