1) \(r^3-r^2=0\)=\(r^2(r-1)=0\)
r=0 or 1

2) \(r=-r\) => 2r=0 i,e r=0

Hence B

==> In the original condition, there is 1 variable (r), and in order to match the number of variables to the number of equations, there must be 1 equation. Since there is 1 for con 1) and 1 for con 2), D is most likely to be the answer.
For con 1), from r2(r-1)=0, you get r=0,1, hence it is not unique and not sufficient.
For con 2), from 2r=0, you get r=0, hence it is unique and sufficient. Therefore, the answer is B.

Answer: B
