Given that y is even and x is a prime and \(xy=22\) we can say x=11 and y=2. Since 22 has only 2 factors.

Hence z=3.

So y < z < x

Hence z=3.

So y < z < x

Let us choose x = 2 (prime) and y = 11 (even). Now x*y*z = 66, therefore z needs to be = 3

So, x<z<y but it does not match the answer, where am I wrong?
