B)

From 1) We have x=y/2, z=2x/5
or 2x=y (or x/y=1/2) and 2x = 5z (or x/z=5/2). Basically we cannot form the term x/yz with these two equations.

2) Multiply the two equations and we get, x/yz= (2/5)*(1/10)= 1/25 => Suffficient.

X/yz can be simplified as (x/z) * (1/y)

From statement 1, we get x / y = 1/2 and 1/2 = 5/2x. This answer will vary for every value of x, hence A is not sufficient.

From statement 2, we have x/z= 2/5 and 1/y = 1/10, so multiplying both of them (2/5) * (1/ 10) = 1/25
