OA to follow.


I got A.

(1) Since v & w are different integers, the only possible solution here is V=0.
(2) Know nothing about v.

I believe we should get the equation to a simplied form
vw-v^2=0 ; v(w-v) => v=w or v=0

and by the looks of it we have two answers! either v=2 or 0.

Since both are different we have v=0.

If v and w are different integers, does v = 0?

Given info V and W are different integers so it can't be equal so (1,1) , (2,2) etc are ruled out

(1) vw = v^2

v^2 - vw = v(v-w) = 0

Since v and w are different integers v must be 0 sufficient!



(2) w = 2

No information about v insufficient

Answer is A

If v and w are different integers, does v = 0?

(1) vw = v^2 --> vw-v^2=0 --> v(w-v)=0: either v=0 or v=w, but as we are told that v and w are different integers then this case is out, so v=0. Sufficient.

(2) w = 2. Clearly not sufficient.

Answer: A.
