This question has being solved using the concept of AP only.
Since, 1/y+z, 1/z+x, 1/x+y are in AP, therefore the common difference will be the same. Hence, we have: 

1/x+z - 1/y+z = 1/x+y - 1/z+x

So taking LCM, we get, y-x / y+z = z-y / x+y

On cross multiplying we get ,

x2 + z2 = 2y2

y2 - x2 = z2 - y2 

Hence, x2, y2, z2 are in AP.
