(1) x – y = 2

(2) x + y = 7


Given that\(x^2-y^2\)=14
(x+y) (x-y)=14

statement 1 : x-y=2. by substituting this value in the equation we will get the value of x+y. adding those we will get the value of x.
Statement 2: the same will be applicable as mentioned above in statement 1.
Thus both statements are sufficient.

The correct answer is D.
