FROM 1

zx-zy = Z(X-Y)<0....... INSUFF

FROM2

X+2y< 0 ........or X<-2Y ... INSUFF ( TRY PLUG IN NUMBERS)

Both together

add both inequalities from 1 and 2

(zx+x)+ (2y-zy) = x(z+1)+y (2-z)<0 .... no idea about relations or values of z ... insuff

I d say E

1) z(x-y)<0

if z<0 then x-y>0----->x>y------>No
if z>0 then x-y<0------->x<y------->yes------>insuff....

2) -3x-6y>0
-3(x+2y)>0
x+2y<0
if x=0 y=-2 then y<x------>No
if x=-2,y=0 then y>x-------> yes----------> insuff..

Combining if x=0 , z=y=-2------->y<x----------->No.
But if x=-2,z=2,y=0---------then y>x-----------Yes..insuff..

Ans E
