looks to be C..

(x-y)^4?

xy=7..

well x=1 then y=7 (1-7)^4 or x=7 y=1 (7-1)^4. same

but say x=1/7 y=7 (1/7 -7)^4 will have different value..

x and y integers..hmm
not much..insuff

togther..
suppose x=-1 y=-7 (-1+7) or (-7+1)..same value..

C it is

I think it is C as well; with stat 1, you dont know if x and y are integers, so not suff.

with stat 2, you know x and y are integers, but they can be anything. insuff.

together, the only possible values are 7 and 1. it doesnt matter which is x and which is y, because you are squaring twice, so you will get the same answer.
