Huh? Inside the spoiler you have given OA as B?
I guess both a sufficient by itself to answer to question "is the value of a between 0 and 1?"
Question rephrase ->\(a*a = b ; a^2 = b ; a = \sqrt{b}\) Is \(0 < a < 1\)
Stat1/ If B is between 0 and 1. Root of any value between 0 and 1 will result in a value larger than B but will still be fraction between 0 and 1. Sufficient
Stat2/ If \(a > b & a =\sqrt{b}\)only values that would satisfy these equations would be value from 0 to 1. Sufficient.
So D it is....

Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and equations ensures a solution.
If a^2=b, is the value of a between 0 and 1?
(1) b is between 0 and 1 (2) a>b
There is nothing to transform in the original condition and the question. WE have 2 variable (a,b) and 1 equation (a^2=b), thus we need 1 more to match the number of variables and equations. Since there is 1 each in 1) and 2), D is likely the answer.
In case of 1), if b=0.04 then the answer is no if a=-0.2 and yes if a=0.2 Thus it is not sufficient. In case of 2), a>b=a^2, a>a^2, 0>a^2-a, 0>a(a-1), 0<a<1, therefore the answer is yes. Thus the answer is B. _________________
