I think B is enough to answer the question

What is question looking for is
x2 - xy = 0
x (x-y) = 0

so either x = 0 or x - y = 0 => x = y
so B gives us the answer.

2. is suff as obvious
1. for x2=xy,either x=0 or x=y
x2-y2=(x+5)(x-5) holds for (x,y)=(5,5)and(-5,-5) and for these values,x2=xy holds
so 1 is also suff.

choice d.

what's the oa???

I'm very sorry, the first part is x^2

7. Is x^2 equal to xy?
(1) x2 â€“ y2 = (x + 5)(y - 5)
(2) x = y
