Q2 Is x(y+z) >0
a: xyz >0
b: yz>0

I think it should be E. Combining if yz>0 and xyz>0 then x must be positive. from S2, either y and z have to be positive or both have 2 b -ve.
In case y and z are +ve, then answer is yes.
In case both are -ve then sum of y+z is -ve so the whole ans is also -ve . thus the ans is No. Thus v r getting seperate answ. it shld be E
