For integers w, x, y, and z, is wxyz = -1?

(1) $$\frac{wx}{yz}$$ = -1
(2) w =$$\frac{-1}{x}$$ and y = $$\frac{1}{z}$$

Statement 1: implies that $$wx = -1*yz$$, but nothing is known about any variable. Hence insufficient

Statement 2: gives $$w*x = -1$$ and $$y*z =1$$, now multiply $$wx$$ & $$yz$$ to get
$$wx*yz = -1*1 = -1$$. Hence sufficient

Option B
