y = 2z.
y and z are both positive integers

so for any value of z (1 being the min.)
x can never be equal to w.

IMO A

The question doesn't state consecutive integers are positive. It only tells y and z are positive.

Say y = 3, than z = 6

And y be set of 3 consecutive integers (0, 1, 2) and its sum = 3 = x
Let z be set of 6 consecutive integers (-2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3) and its sum = 3 = w

Which says x = z.

I think only one which couldn't be true is E, x/z.
