c it is...

statement 1

X^2-y^2=0, pick 0 (which is even) and 3 which is odd.

we dont know what Y is... so insuff

statement 2

X^2+y^2=18,

x can be 3 or 0 if y is 3 or some value like 4.4 <--we dont know if y is integer or not.

taking together we now know that x=y therfore 3 is the only possible soution.

C it is

If both r ints...then state I satisfies when X = 1 and Y = 1 and X = 2 and Y = 2....insuff.....as Xcan be even or odd

In state 2.....if X = 0,1,2,4...Y can't be an integer and vice versa, also either of X or Y can't be >= 5.....so only for X = Y = #3 satisfies....so X is always odd...so ANS is NO.....suff
