A?

S1 This statement makes either S or T positive and the other number negative. If they are equal distance from 0 on the number line (-1 and 1; -150 and 150) then -1+1 = 0, -150+150 = 0, etc.

S2 Not sufficient. For example: S = -10 and T = 5 implies that 0 is between -10 and 5 or S = -5 and T = 5 implies that 0 lies between -5 and 5 and -5+5 = 0.

Going for A too

They are different numbers and the distance between s and 0 is the same as the distance between t and 0
Only possible, if one of them is + and other one is -

U guys are correct.

I cant believe I missed such an obvious clue

If s and t are two different numbers on the number line, is s+t equal to 0 ?

I will go for Option A.
The stat 2 by itself is not sufficient to say if [S] and [T ] are equal.
The question can be answered only if [s]=[t].
