A

1 - Sufficient

x <> 0, y <> 0, z <> 0
¦ y + z ¦ = ¦ y ¦ + ¦ z ¦ possible only when y and z have same sign – either both positive or both negative.
The expression x (y + z) can be zero only when y + z is 0 because x can never be 0 (As xyz <> 0)
But (y + z) is not 0 because both y and z has same sign.

So x (y + z) <> 0

2 - Insufficient
Apply same logic

If xyz<>0 then none of x,y and z is0.
For x(y+z) =0 , the following must be true
y=-z

Now (2) gives no relation between y and z
Hence answer has to be (A),(C) or (E)
Again from Stat(1) we get y=z, hence y!=-z
Thus (A)
