Lets assume x=470 and y=550 which satisfies the given conditions. Based on the three choices given, only III seems to make sense which is B. Please let me know if find it wrong anywhere.

thanks

you are right. the answer is B

after giving it a thought again, the first 2 statements will not make any difference in arriving at a four digit number.
