1) x=2 , y=0 yes
Y=0, x=2 no

2) x=1, y=-1 yes
x=0 , y= -1 no

Both 1 and 2 together

X=1, y=-1 yes
X=1, y=-4 no

E is the correct answer

\(|x^2| - |y^2| = |x^2–y^2|\)
or
is |x|≥|y|?

Sign of x or y won't tell us anything about the magnitude of x or y

Clearly E

\(Ix^2I=lxl^2=x^2\)
so question is asking whether
\(x^2-y^2=Ix^2-y^2I\)
or
\(x^2-y^2>=0\)
From 1)
No info about Y
Not sufficient
From 2)
No info about X
Not sufficient
From 1 and 2
x=4, y= -1(yes)
x=4, y=-9(No)
