As mentioned in posts above, a square is a special type of rhombus and hence both statements are sufficient on their own, making C the correct answer.

Superset
The answer to the question will be either yes or no.

Translation
In order to find the answer, we need:
1# measure of length of sides
2# angle between the diagonals
3# other properties to justify that the quadrilateral is a triangle

Statement analysis
St 1: diagonals are bisectors happens in parallelogram. Diagonals are perpendicular happens in kite. A figure common to both is a rhombus. ANSWER.

St 2: if all sides are equal. The figure will be a rhombus. ANSWER

Option D

All Squares -> Rhombuses

However not all Rhombuses are squares

Four equal sides -> square

If A then B does not imply If B then A

Perpendicular Bisectors -> Rhombus

Statement 1

Suff


Statement 2

Suff


D
