Statement 1 is insufficient.
Statement 2 Insufficient.

combining statement 1 and 2 is sufficient coz statement 1 tells us that the Line AC will be diameter and statement 2 tells us that angle a is 50 degree which bring us to the conclusion that the line ab and cb is not equal

KUDOS IF THIS WAS HELPFUL

Can you please elaborate a bit more?

If we have a right angle on the line of the circle we know that AC is the diameter?

Hi,

Its a property of circle that the triangle made from the diameter (with AC as diameter) then angle ABC (with point B on the circle) will be 90 degrees (vice versa is also true).

If I made the point clear then Kindly HIT KUDOS.
