I finally understood your problem. The problem description needs some adjustment. It is not clear that it is requesting only the global variable named 'z'. I thought it was referring to every global variable.
"global variable z" was explicitly mentioned in both the problem title and the problem description. Other than that, I trust that your comment and the Test Suite should be sufficient to remove any residual doubts.
