C. Should that really be categorized under hardest problems? It tests your ability to pay attention to the prompt more than anything.

I think it's the prompt and the putting A and B together, but I wouldn't rate this more than a 600-700 problem.

really somewhat tricky, but should not be among the hardest - just testing your attention to consider positive numbers only

I almost went for E because the second option gets to q=r and q=-r, but question stem says it is positive integers and hence ruled out q=-r.
Good one!

BELOW IS REVISED VERSION OF THIS QUESTION:

Are positive numbers $$p$$, $$q$$, and $$r$$ equal?

(1) $$p = q$$
(2) $$q^2 = r^2$$

(1) $$p = q$$. Not sufficient, since no info about $$r$$
(2) $$q^2 = r^2$$ --> since given that $$p$$ and $$q$$ are positive numbers then $$q=r$$. Not sufficient since no info about $$p$$.

(1)+(2) As $$p = q$$ and $$q=r$$ then $$p=q=r$$. Sufficient.
