Basically the question is asking whether r = -s. If r = -s, then middle between -s and s is 0.

1) 0 < s.

2) distance(r, t) = distance (-s, t)
case 1: if s is postive, -s must be left of s, then r = -s.
Then the answer to the question is YES (0 is mid point between r & s)
case 2: if s is negative, -s must be right of s,
Then the answer to the question is NO

Therefore, 2) is also INSUFFICIENT

Now if (1) & (2) are combined, (1) suggest that s is a postive, which makes ONLY case 1 in (2) true. NOW (1) and (2) combined, we know they are SUFFICIENT

Simple, but tricky. Almost picked B for this. But, 2) leads to two possibilities: 0 can be left or right of S.

Without (I), r and s could both be 0.
