What is the value of (p^3) - (q^3)?
1. p-q = 0
2. p + q = 0

I dont get it -i picked c
The reason why I dont think 1 is suff is cause

p-q=0

p=2,q= 2
2-2=0

now take p=-2 and q=-2
-2- (-2)
-2+2=0

therefore a isnt suff
b also is not suff
p=2,q=-2 or p=-2,q=2

combined they are suff

stmnt1) p-q=0
so p=q.
p=2,q=2
(2.2.2)-(2.2.2)=8-8=0
p=-2,q=-2
(-2.-2.-2)-(-2.-2.-2)=(-8)-(-8)=-8+8=0
stmnt always yields 0 as reult,so it is sufficient
