a) In cases where X occurs but Y does not, X is usually followed by Z.
Implies X->Z.

b) In cases where X occurs, followed by Y, Y is usually followed by Z.
Implies X->Y->Z.

c) In cases where Y occurs but X does not , Y is usually followed by Z.
Implies Y->Z.

d) In cases where occurs but Z does not, Y is usually preceded by X.
X->Y.

e) In cases where Z occurs, it is usually preceded by X and Y.
X or Y -> Z

Only A stand out, which says Z occurs because of A and not because of Y.

Which of the following further observations would best support the new report's suggestion?

a) In cases where X occurs but Y does not, X is usually followed by Z.
b) In cases where X occurs, followed by Y, Y is usually followed by Z. -> opposes
c) In cases where Y occurs but X does not , Y is usually followed by Z. -> opposes
d) In cases where occurs but Z does not, Y is usually preceded by X. -> what if y is preceded by x when z occurs
e) In cases where Z occurs, it is usually preceded by X and Y.-> y's absense is not said

we need to prove when y is absent z should occur if x occurs
hence clearly A does this
IMO A
