(1) y = 5
(2) x > 0

if |x – y| = 5 then either x-y=5 or x-y=-5

(1) y = 5 from this x can be 10 or 0 (from respective equations x-y=5 or x-y=-5): not sufficient
(2) x > 0 from this x can be there are lots of combinations available for x and y values: not sufficient

Combining both (1) & (2) x is 10 so answer is C.
