IMO Option B.

(1) x can be 0 or 1. 0! = 1! = 1
If x = 0 then 0! = |0-1|! = |-1|! = 1! = 1
If x = 1, then 1! = |1-1|! = 0! = 1

Hence insufficient to say if x is odd or even since if x is 0, it is neither odd nor even.

(2) Only value (nonnegative integer) to satisfy the equation is x = 0. Hence sufficient to answer Yes/No type question stem.

Hence Option B.

i stand corrected perhaps mistakenly typed 'd' instead of 'b'
