(B) for me :)

5*x^2+ 4x-1 = ?

From 1
x*(x+2) =0
<=> x=0 or x=-2

Let's plug the values to see if the result would be equal:
o If x=0, then 5*0 + 4*0 -1 = -1
o If x=-2, then 5*4 + 4*(-2) -1 = 20 - 9 = 11

INSUFF.

From 2
x=0

Clearly, we have : 5*0 + 4*0 -1 = -1

1. x(x+2)=0 <=> x=0 or x=-2 Insuff (We need only one value for x)
2. x=0 Clearly sufficient. Replace x with 0 and you have the value.

Answer: B
