Mary prepared $$x$$ pounds of pasta for the $$y$$ people expected to attend a banquet. If only $$z$$ of these $$y$$ people actually attend, such that $$z < y,$$ how many pounds of pasta will be left over if Mary serves the originally intended portion to each of the guests in attendance?

(A) $$\dfrac{x(y - z)}{y}$$

(B) $$\dfrac{zx}{y}$$

(C) $$\dfrac{x - z}{y}$$

(D) $$\dfrac{x(z - y)}{y}$$

(E) $$\dfrac{x(y + z)}{y}$$
