(1) xyz+ 1 is odd.

(2) xy + xz + yz is even.


x is even & y is odd.

1) xyz+1=odd. xy is even, z can be either even or odd. Insufficient.

2) xy=even, xz=even, as x is even. hence, yz is even. As Even + Even + x is even, So, x is even.
Since y is odd, so z is even. Z isn't odd. Sufficient.

IMO, Option B.

Note : x = even. y=odd.

Statement 1; xyz + 1 = odd. xyz=even as x is even. it's not possible to identify specifically whether z is odd or even. NOT sufficient.

Statement 2. xy =even. xz =even. y =odd. So, z has to be an even integer in order to make the statement true. Sufficient. z =even.

The correct answer is B.
