1. X-1 is even, i.e. x is odd, this is not sufficient as product of three numbers Can be odd only for odd*odd*odd

2. (Y-Z)(X-Z) is odd. Product of 2 numbers can be odd only when both are odd and difference/sum of two numbers is odd when one is even and other odd. Using this logic, there are two Cases from statement's 2:
Case 1: x odd, y odd, z even, it gives product as even
Case 2: x even, y even, z odd, it gives product as even

Therefore, statement 2 is sufficient and xyz is even
