In Data Sufficiency for the Yes/No questions, if the options give a unique value which is No, can we consider it as an answer?

Yes, absolutely.
In DS we are asked one question and question only: is the info enough to give a definite answer? that definite answer can be anything - "yes", "no, "57", etc.

There are two types of data sufficiency questions:

1. YES/NO DS Questions:

In a Yes/No Data Sufficiency questions, statement(s) is sufficient if the answer is “always yes” or “always no” while a statement(s) is insufficient if the answer is "sometimes yes" and "sometimes no".

2. VALUE DS QUESTIONS:

When a DS question asks about the value of some variable, then the statement(s) is sufficient ONLY if you can get the single numerical value of this variable.
