x^2 + 2xy + y^2
can be factored as (x+y)^2

1)x + y = 7 so 7^2 = 49 sufficient

2)x = 2, tells us nothing of y.
INSUFFICIENT

its A.

1)x + y = 7 so 7^2 = 49 sufficient

2)x = 2, so the equation becomes a quadratic with y as variable.
y^2 + 4y + 4 => (y+2)(y+2) . Since we do not know y, we cannot find out the value of this equation. Insufficient.

Clear A for this one.
Second statement doesn't tell anything about y variable.
