(E) for me :)

A*B = 1 ?

Stat 1
A*B*A = A

We have 2 cases :
o If A =0 then 0*B*0 = 0 and A*B = 0*B = 0
o If A !=0 then A*B*A = A <=> A*B = 1

INSUFF.

Stat 2
B*A*B = B

We have 2 cases :
o If B =0 then 0*A*0 = 0 and A*B = A*0 = 0
o If A !=0 then B*A*B = B <=> A*B = 1

INSUFF.

Both 1 and 2
We still have 2 cases:
o If A = B = 0, then A*B*A = A = 0 and B*A*B = B = 0... as well as, A*B = 0
o If A = 1/B, then A*B*A = A and B*A*B = B... as well as, A*B = 1

INSUFF.
