15. Is r^2 + s^2 = 0?
(1) r + s = 0
(2) 3r^2 + 4s^2 = 0


17. If x and y are positive integers and y = root (9-x) , what is the value of y?
(1) x <8> 1

Don't understand your #17, please repost.

For #15. It is B.
For r^2 + s^2 to be equal to 0, both must equal to zero. You can tell because both are positive numbers and if you add positive and positive and equal to zero, both must be 0.

(1) INSUFFICIENT. r=-4, s=4 works as well as both equal to 0.
(2) Same reason as above. SUFFICIENT.

Yeah, I'd like it if you can post the other option.

based on what I see, it appears if 1 is sufficient, if you mean 1 is , x >1 and x <8> +/- 2 and since Y is said to be positive int, y value is 2.

Q1:
St1:
Case1: If r = 1/2, s = 1/2, then r^2+s^2 != 0
Case2: If r = 0, s = 0, then r^2+s^2 = 0.
Insufficient.

St2:
Case1: r=0, s=0, then r^2+s^2 = 0
Case2:If r = sqrt(3) and s = sqrt(4), then 3r^2 + 4s^2 = 0 but r+s !=0. Insufficient.

Using both st1 and st2:
Must be both r and s = 0. Sufficient.

Ans C

Q2:
