You could either substitute the 4 sets of values into one equation or start solving:

1. 2x+3y+4z=2

2. 5x-2y+3z=0

3. x-5y-2z=-4

Equ 1 x 2

4x+6y+8z=4

Equ 2 x 3

15x-6y+9z=0

add 19x+17z=4

from by inspection z must be opposite sign to x and x equals z so B) and C) are possible answers.

You could either continue solving the equations or substitute the two sets in say equation 1.
