If X, Y, Z are non-zero numbers, is the distance between Z and Y on the number line, more than the distance between X and Y on the number line?

(1) Y is the smallest number among X, Y, Z.

(2) Out of X, Y, Z; only X is positive.

According to statement 1, if Y< X<Z , then YES but if Y<Z<X, then NO.

Clearly insufficient.

According to statement 2, if Y<Z<X, then NO.
But if Z<Y<X then may be YES or may be NO... cannot say.
Insufficient again.

On combining, we get Y<Z<X and only X is positive.

Thus, option C is correct.
