Do note that the operation / is not in the stem

Why not (D).

Statment 2

* is either (+) or (-)

So 1*0 is 1.

Interesting!

While we can compute the value of 1*0 on the basis of the two possibilities that choice 2 throws - and incidentally 1-0 and 1+0 are both the same yet had it been some other value for example 1*2 the problem could not have been solved on the basis of 2 alone. Hence I think A is right.

D should be a correct one. it is asking the value of 1*0 not the operative sign (+ve, -ve, multiplication, or division).
