Question is asking value of (x-y)^2 = x^2 + y^2 - 2xy (1) Sufficient: xy = -5, Now, one has be positive and other negative. Possible values of x and y respectively are: (1,-5), (-1,5), (5,-1), (-5,1). => x^2 + y^2 - 10. Now all the possible values of x and y will give same answer for x^2+y^2. (2) Insufficient: No data about x and y is given.
