This problem is (7.11) from a book  "Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics An Integrated Approach by M. Scott Shell"

7.11. For a binary system, classify the following
incomplete (meaning that not enough information is provided to completely
as fundamental, not fundamental,
or
specify the function):
(a) X(E, P/T, Ni, N2), where X S - PV/T
(b) Y(T, P, N, 2), where Y A H2N2
(c) Z(E, V, u/T, N2), where Z S+N/T
