Official Solution:

What is the value of $$x^2 – y^2$$?

(1) $$|x| = |y|$$

Square: $$x^2 = y^2$$

Re-arrange: $$x^2 – y^2=0$$. Sufficient.

(2) $$x^2 + y^2 = 0$$

We are given that the sum of two non-negative values is 0. This is only possible if both equal 0. Thus, $$x^2 = y^2=0$$ and therefore $$x^2 – y^2=0$$. Sufficient.
