The operation Θ is defined by x Θ y = 1/x + 1/y for all nonzero numbers x and y. If z is a
number greater than 1, which of the following must be true?
I. x Θ (-z) = 0
II. z Θ z/(z-1)= 1
III.2/z Θ 2/z= z
A. I only
B. I and II only

Got D II and III

I says (1/x) - (1/z) = 0 means z-x=0 and z=x. not necessary

II. z Θ z/(z-1)= 1

1/z + (z-1)/z = 1/z (z-1+1) = 1 Yes

III.2/z Θ 2/z= z

z/2 + z/2 = z

1) is still wrong. The difference is not necessarily equal to zero. So, IMO = D
