The enrolment of students (in 1000s) at each of the five universities named — MPU, JSU, LTU, PKU and TRU — during each of the eight years from 2014 to 2021 is represented in the following chart. The names of these universities are not shown in the chart, Stead they are labelled Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3, Unit 4 and Unit 5.

However, these four pieces of information are available:
W: The magnitudes of TRU's and MPU's net change in enrolment between 2014 and 2021 are the closest among any two universities.
X: LTU had the same enrolment in consecutive years at least twice between 2014 and 2021.
Y: The increase in JSU's enrolment from 2015 to 2019 is about 50% of TRU's total enrolment in 2020.
Z: The enrolment in one of LTU and PKU had a steady decline between 2014 and 2021, while the enrolment in the other had no decline between any two consecutive years in the same period.
