I get C too..here is why...

stem: x^2 + y^2 =5M ?

1) x-y=5M +1

well..(x-y)^2=x^2+y^2-2xy=5M=1 as you can see..we dont know if 2xy is causing the remainder 1 or if its x^2+y^2?? Insuff

2) x+y=5M+3

then (x+y)^2 will also give a remainder of 3...

x^2+y^2+2xy= again same reason as above..Insuff

togehter... 2xy cancel..

we have now X^2+y^2; the remainder is 4...

C it is..
