The average of x and -10 is equidistant from x and -10 on the number line.

1) Sufficient. We can see that z is closer to -10 and hence is lesser than the average.

2) Insufficient. x=-9, z= -45, average(x,-10) = -9.5, So z<average
x=-1, z = -5 , average(x,-10) = -5.5, So z>average

Kudos Please... If my post helped.
