(1) X+Y is divisible by 7
(2) X-Y is divisible by 7


X= 7k+U
Y= 7m+V

1)
X+Y = 7 (k+m)+U+V
which is divisible by 7
means U+V must be divisable 7 and also U<7 and V<7
so U+V=7

Sufficient
2)

X-Y = 7(k-m)+(U-V)
This is divisible by 7 when U-V is also divisible by 7
and also U<7 and V<7..

U-V must be zero. i.e U=V

U can be any number between 1 to 7
insuffcient


A

(1) X+Y is divisible by 7
(2) X-Y is divisible by 7


say,X=7p+u
Y=7q+v
X+Y=7(p-q)+u+v
=> (1) u+v div by 7 => u+v=7
(2)u-v div by 7 => only when u=v then its possible hence multiple values

IMO A

I think, answer should be C.
If U and V each can be 0, neither of the statements by itself would be sufficient.
What do you think?

good point agreed.

when combined...

U=0 and V=0

U+V=0

C
