Given equation is X > Y^2 > Z^4

I. X> Y> Z trying a random value say X= 10, Y =2 , Z=1
Satisfies the original equation

II. Z>Y>X say X =1/2 , Y= 1/3 , Z= Â¼
Satisfies the original equation

III. X> Z> Y say X=1/2, Z=1/3, Y=1/4
Satisfies the original equation

So all these 3 conditions satisfies the original condition
Ans = E

Thanks. I've always been bad at picking numbers. After being able to satisfy (I), I was racking my brains about what numbers to pick for the other two.
I think I tried fractions but may have messed up in the calculations
