Question says x<y<z

statement 1: y/z < y/x
lets take x,y,z as 1,2,3

y/z < y/x = 2/3 < 2/1 which is true. It is true for every value.

Statement 2: xz > xy
lets take x,y,z as 1,2,3

2*3 > 2*1 , true again

Statement 3:
z > x + y
lets take x,y,z as 1,2,3

3 not greater than 2+1

False.

Hence answer is option D

III. z > x + y

(A) I only
(B) II only
(C) III only
(D) I and II only
(E) II and III only


Given : x, y, z > 0 and x < y < z

Question : Which of the following statements must be true?

I. \(\frac{y}{z} <\frac{y}{x}\)

II. \(xz > xy\)

III. \(z > x + y\)

From I. \(\frac{y}{z} <\frac{y}{x}\)

We can reduce it to \(\frac{1}{z} < \frac{1}{x}\)

Or \(x < z\) TRUE

(B), (C), and (E) are out

From II. \(xz > xy\)

We can reduce it to \(y < z\) (As we know x, y, and z are positive) TRUE

(A) out

Hence (D)
