Is 2st > 0?
This means is st>0, or s and t have SAME sign?

(1) (t + s)² + (t – s)² > 0
Squares are always non negative. So this just tells us S=t=0 is not possible..
Insufficient

(2) (t + s)² < (t – s)²
\(t^2+s^2+2st<t^2+s^2-2st......4st<0...st<0\)
Thus ans is no, st is not greater than 0..
Sufficient

B
