Is the answer E...

1) Of PQR ...Insufficient
each of them can be zero..or all three can be zero...other combinations...

2) P+Q+R ...Insufficient...
(-2)+1+1.....1+0+(-1)....

If no condition on integers is specified,, u should try both -ve and +ve integers.

Let me explain
1) Atleast one of P, Q and R is zero. We cannot determine how many are zeroes here. It could be 1 or 2 or 3 zeroes.
2) Sum of three numbers is zero
Here it is possible that P = -(Q+R) or Q = -(P+R) and none of them might be zero.
All can be zeroes. So this condition is insufficient. Here either none are zeroes or one is zero or three are zeroes

Combine both
P = -(Q+R) here R might be zero which will satisfy A) then P = -Q which will satisfy B). So one zero will satisfy A and B
If All numbers are zero then also Both A) and B are satisfied.
So We cannot tell if there is one zer or three zeroes.

So E is the answer.
