Can someone explain how the answer is E...please. It seems to be like the answer is C.

1) None of x, y or z may be zero
2) Either both y and z are positive, or both negative.

Combining both, if both y and z are negative, x should be negative as well. That makes x(y+z) positive.

What am I missing...........
