1) x=y^2
2) xy^2=0

If (x+y^2)=0, x = 0 & y = 0.
If (x+y^2)=/=0, (x+y^2)=1

(x+y^2) = (x+y^2)^2 ?

Statement1) x=y^2
If x = y = 0, y = 0
If x =/= 0 and y =/= 0, (2y^2)=1
y^2=1/2
y=root2/2 or y = -root2/2
Insufficient

Statement2) xy^2=0 (x = 0 or y = 0)
Insufficient

Statement1&2) x=y=0
Sufficient

I vote for (C).
