I get E.

Stmt 1: Square both sides and you get m= 3n,-3n
If m=3n then 3n-3n=0
If m=-3n then -3n-3n=-6n

Stmt 2: m=-3n, so:
-3n-3n=-6n

Since we dont know what n is, it's insuff.

E ?

from stat 1, we get (m-3n)(m+3n)=0, cant get any info about n. insuff.

from stat 2, we still cant get a value for n. insuff.

together, we still cant get a value for n. not that i can see, anyways.
