If y is the largest and x is the smallest,

y^2-x^2=99

But 99=99*1=33*3=11*9

So (y+x,y-x) could be (99,1), (33,3) or (11,9)

Thus (y,x) could be (50,49),(18,15), or (10,1)

Range could be 1,3,or 9

So (1) is not sufficient

(2) is not sufficent by itself

(1) and (2) together - range could be 3 or 9 (Not Sufficient)
