1. r is odd
2. x=s+2

Is there some thing missing in this question ?

Anyway, Question is asking whether 2= rx-rs ?

1. Clearly insufficient

2. putting the value of x = > 2= rs + 2r -rs = > 2= 2r

which means the st 2 will be sufficient if we know that r =1 but else its not and hence answer should be E and not B

Is rs = rx − 2 ?

Is $$rs = rx-2$$? --> is $$r(x-s)=2$$?

(1) r is an odd number. Not sufficient: consider r=1 and x-s=2 AND r=1 and x-s=3.

(2) x = s + 2 -->$$x-s=2$$ --> the question becomes: is $$r=1$$? We don't know that. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) From (2) the question became: is $$r=1$$? and (1) says that r=odd, but we don't know whether it's 1 or any other odd number. Not sufficient.
