C

(1) r + s = 7

(2) r^2 – s^2 = 7

(1) Insufficient

(2) Insufficient

(r+s)(r-s) = 7

(1) and (2)

7*(r-s) = 7
r-s = 1
r+s = 7

1+s+s = 7
s = 3
r = 4

why cant you deduce from statement B, r^2 - s^2=7, that r is 4 and s is 3 giving an answer of B for the problem

We don't know if the numbers are positive integers. The second relation will also work if one of the numbers is a negative integer, in which case, there is a different ration. So, C is the best option.
