B

a good one (+1)

1. AC = AB + BC - 0.001 : angle ABC is (0,180). insufficient
2. AC = AB : angle ABC is (0,90). sufficient

Is angle ABC > 90 degrees? No, because the angle is less 90. Therefore, information is sufficient to answer the question.
Hope this help

Just draw out the triangle.

S1: No help here.

S2:

Ul see that Angle ABC is equal to one of the other angles. We cannot have ABC >90* no matter what we do to the other angles b/c its equal to one of the other angles.

B
