Help with Triangles and Altitudes.

Mathematics
Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

I am preparing for the NY State Geometry Regent, and I tried to answer a question given to me. The question reads: In the diagram below of right triangle ABC, an altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse AB (The line above AB did not copy into this text box). Hopefully the picture will be included in the question.

The options were: 

1) C/Z = Z/Y 

2) C/A = A/Y

3) X/Z = Z/Y

4) Y/B = B/X

I can't even begin to understand what is going on, let alone the correct answer. 

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
