Given xy ≠ 0,
Solving this equation further 1/x +1/y = 16
(x+y)/xy=16...............A

1) x+y=16xy;
Inserting the value for x+y in equation A equates the both sides.SUFFICIENT.

2)x=y;
This will give any definite result for the equation A.
L.H.S ≠R.H.S INSUFFICIENT

(1) x + y = 16xy

(2) x = y


(1) \(x + y = 16xy\)

\(\frac{x+ y}{xy} = 16\)

\(\frac{x}{xy} + \frac{y}{xy} = 16\)

\(\frac{1}{x} + \frac{1}{y} = 16\)

Hence I is Sufficient.

(2) \(x = y\)

We do not have value of either \(x\) or \(y\), hence we cannot find if \(\frac{1}{x} + \frac{1}{y} = 16\)

Hence II is Not Sufficient.

Answer (A)...
