Editing my post

IMO D. (I read Geometry rules and now understood Rhombus has equal sides)

With Statement 1: BC = BD hence it gives BC=BD=AD. Since all sides equal hence 60 deg. Therefore Sufficient

With Statement 2: angle BDA = 60 therefore angle DBC is also 60. Again since we got one angle and we know by rhombus property that BC = CD therefore all angles equal. Therefore Sufficient

IMO D is correct
Both statements are sufficient

With Statement 1: BC = BD hence it gives BC=BD=AD. But no other info provided for eg angle BCD could be 45 or it could be 30 we have no info. Not Sufficient

With Statement 2: angle BDA = 60 therefore angle DBC is also 60. We cannot infer what angle C is in angle BCD. Not sufficient

Hi,
boththe statements are suff alone..

With Statement 1: BC = BD hence it gives BC=BD=AD. all angles are 60 .. suff

With Statement 2: angle BDA = 60 , the diagonal bisects the angle so BCD= 60.. suff

A rhombus has all sides equal..
1) if BC=BD then BCD is equilateral triangle and all angles are 60°
thus BCD=60°.....suff...
2) if Angle BDA = 60° then angle ABD is also 60° (As AD=AB)
thus making ABD equilateral triangle
As both triangles ABD & BCD of rhombus are SSS congruent then BCD=60°...suff

Ans D

D it is. Rhombus has equal sides. If the diagonal is equal to a side or if the angle at the diagonal is 60 then every angle in the triangles need to be 60
