Statement 1) Sufficient. The only way v and w can be different integers and vw = v^2 is if v = 0, otherwise, v and w MUST be the same thing.

Statement 2) In sufficient. This says nothing about v so it is insufficient. We must be told something about v otherwise there is not enough information.

Statement 1 : For vw= v^2 v can be zero or v=w . But v=w not possible as v and w are different integers , therefore v=0

Statement 2 : Insuff as no infor about v
