z^n = 1 is possible for all values of z when n = 0

1st statemnet tells us n is nonzero integer.
So if this is true than only possible value of z is 1 OR (-1) when n is even integer

2nd statement tell us z >0

so the only value that satisfy the condition is 1

Z ^ n =1 can be satisfied by

(A) 1 ^ 1 = 1

(B) ( any number ) ^ 0 = 1

(C) 1 ^ ( any +ve number) =1

(1) is saying n!=0 So we have (A) and (C) remaining. Both point that Z=1. Suff

(2) is saying Z>0. Z can be 1,2,3,5... Insuff

I got A

i agree with amit gupta.
statement 1 gives 2 values and both statement together gives one value for Z

Totally blew up the -1 part. I can see why A is wrong.
