statement 1 says that (x-y)(x+y)=(x+5)(y-5). so by comparing R.H.S with L.H.S we get the values of x and y to be -5 and -5. so statement 1 is sufficient.

Statement 2 says that x=y therefore it is sufficient.

So answere is D. Both the statements are sufficient.

Javed.

You are right ... the answer should be (B)

You can't compare LHS and RHS for polynomial equations to arrive at solutions.
