(1) ABCD > 0
(2) BCDE = 0


Statement 1, ABCD>0, Either two of A,b,c,d is -ve and two are positive or all are -ve or all are +ve. But none of them is zero. Insufficient.

Statement 2, One or more of BCDE is zero. Insufficient.

(1)+(2), Any of the B, C, D is either -ve or +ve. Therefore, E is zero. Therefore, DE=0. Sufficient.

Therefore, IMO, Option C.

1) There is no info on E, therefore NOT SUFFICIENT

2) BCDE = 0 --> B,C,D or E can be 0 NOT SUFFICIENT

1&2) ABCD > 0 and BCDE = 0. Therefore it must be that E = 0 --> D x E = 0.

Answer C
