E

xy even means either x even y odd or x odd or y even

yz even means either y even z odd or y odd or z even

taking both if y is even in both case xz will be odd
and if any x or z is even the xz will be even

so insufficient data . Ans E

E for me too.

1) xy = even, hence x can be odd or even. We don't know what z is hence cannot say whther xz is even or odd.

2)yz is even. Again no idea about x

Both;
xy =even and yz is even But anynumber can be even or odd. so cannot conclusively say if xz is even or odd

if y is even then xy and yz will always be even.

So it doesn't provide any information about x and z.
