1 gives us
y=0 or y=1

2 gives us the same.

Had 2 resulted in y=0 or y=2, would the answer have been C? cause y=0 is common in both statements ?

Please, DO NOT post pictures of questions. Rule #6 here: rules-for-posting-please-read-this-before-posting-133935.html

What is the value of y?

(1) y^3+2y=y+2y^2. Rearrange and factor out y to get y(y^2-2y+1)=0, which is the same as y(y-1)^2=0, so y=0 or y=1. Not sufficient.

(2) y^2=y. The same two solutions: y=0 or y=1. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Nothing new. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.

As for your question: if from (2) we had that y=0 or y=2, then the answer would be C: y=0.

Thanks for the reply..

No. In this case the question would be flawed: on the GMAT, two data sufficiency statements always provide TRUE information and these statements never contradict each other.

Thus the case when from (1) we have that y=0 or y=1 and from (2) we have that y=3 or y=4, is not possible, since in this case the statements clearly contradict each other.

Hope it's clear.
