The easiest way to solve this problem is to attempt to produce two different answers. What if we imagined that point Q was stretched waaaay off to the right? Draw a quick picture. This would make y quite large and z quite small.

Now how can we make z large and y small? If you imagine smushing point Q down very close to the base, then z would be quite large while y would be small. So the answer is D.
