I will say A.

1) Since y is a positive integer and 5000 = (+5)^4 * 2^3, y has to take on the value of 5.

2) we do not know if y is + or - 5.

I pick C

y must be positive cause power is even. But we need to be sure x is an integer as well to avoid (1/n) power issues...
Then the prime factors split provides y value.
