I tried with sample numbers.
y^2 is always +ve and as X is greater, it should be +ve.
For the caseI x>y>zConsider x=5, y=2, z=1=> satisfies x>y^2>z^4
case I could be true.

For case II, z>y>x, consider fractions x=1/4,
y=1/3,z=1/2
=> satisfies x>y^2>z^4 => 1/4 > 1/9 > 1/16
case II could be true

For caseIII, x>z>y, consider x=26, y=-5 and z=-2. Here z >y
=> satisfies x>y^2>z^4 => 26>25>16
Case III could be true.

So answer is E.
