Your perfectionism scares me. C is correct.
I feel I have to create something more difficult.
As far as I remember, you have done no mistake while dealing with my problems. It is the all-time record.

I do mistakes while dealing with yours.

from 1) answers are 1 and 2

from 2) answers are 0 and 1

don't forget 0! also equals 1

therefore both are needed, therefore C

2. 0!=1, so S=1

B stands

I got you, stupid mistakes. To be honest, they're killing me the most.

(1) 0!=1 and 1!=1 So S=1 or S=0

(1) and (2) S=1

C.

is S! = S it got to be 1

because 1! = 1 and 0! =1

now it is not zero because 0! is not equal to zero.

on the other hand statement 2) says S! = 1, so s can be 0 or 1, so it is insufficient.

my answer is A.

0!=1 and 1!=1

C is the answer.

From (1) we know that S=1 or S=2; From (2) we know that S=0 or S=1; From (1) and (2) we know that S=1.

my answer is A.

I think you are forgetting that 2! = 2, which gives 2 values for st 1)
st 2) gives 0 or 1..

together, only 1 is common, hence C.
