Please remember that z is +ve as given in the question.

A: z/x<z/y Dividing by z both side we have => 1/x < 1/y.
We are not told about x and y being +ve or -ve only thing is that x<y. So this one might or might not hold.

B: y/z<x/z, Multiplyig both sides by z, we have y<x. Not true as given in question x<y.

C: x>y/z, Multiplyig both sides by z, we have y<zx. Since we do not have fixed values for x,y, and z so there is infinite possibilities to satisfy or not satisfy this inequality.

D: z-x<z-y. Substracting z from both side, we have -x<-y => y<x. Not true as given in question x<y.

E: xz<yz Dividing by z both side we have => x<y, which is given in the question.
