C?

Question: xy = x^2?
x (y-x) = 0?
x = 0? OR x = y?

Statement I
xy-y^2 = 0
y = 0 OR x=y
Insuff

Statement II
x^2-y^2 = 0
x = y OR x=-y
Insuff

Together,
Sutrating statement 1 from statement 1 gives question eqn.
Sufficient.

I think A is the answer.

st.1
xy = y^2

x = y^2/y

x = y/1

y = 3, x = 3--> 3*3 = 3^2
y = -3, x = -3--> -3 * -3 = -3^2

st.2
x^2 = y^2
x = -3, y could be 3 or -3

Please correct me if I am wrong.
(I am trying to learn a lot from you guys)

Alex,
What if y=0 and X is not.

Iagree with hardworker - its always ideal to rewrite it as an equation as outlined by hardworker.

I will go with C too.

Its C - got confused between A and C too, but writing down the equation as hardworker did makes sense. Thanks guys

Hardworker just gave me an important tool I can use on the real test.

Nice work, hardworker...
I miss the possiblity of 0 as well...

I pick A at first but C should be the answer.
