A) r+s=1
B) u=1-r; v=1-s

is: s^2+r^2 = u^2+v^2

from 1

no relation between the 2 points cooridnates...insuff

from 2

s^2+r^2 = (1-r)^2+(1-s)^2 = 1-2r+r^2+1-2s+s^2

2 = 2r+2s ie: r+s = 1 same as A ...insuff

both inusff as well ............E

Agree with AshForGmat
From 1:
no information about u, v
=> Insuff
From 2:
It's possible that
u= 0.9, r=0.1
v=0.8, s= 0.2
=>Insuff
(1)&(2) together: u=s & v=r => Suff => (C)
