1) s is to the right of zero.
2) The distance between t and r is the same as the distance between t and -s.

I think the correct answer should be C

1) s is to the right of zero. - insufficient

2) The distance between t and r is the same as the distance between t and -s. -insufficient
This option can be interpreted in two ways
1st, when s is on the left of zero
<-------r---------s--0--t---------------(-s)---->

2nd, when s is on the right of zero. In this case, r and -s will lie at the same point.
<-------r(-s)---------0---------s--t------------->

Together: Sufficient, as only 2nd case (in option 2) would be possible

<-------r(-s)-----t----0----s---->

Not sure, if we can re-arrange the sequence in which all the letters are given in the original diagram. I would prefer sticking to the same sequence as given in question.

Shouldn't the case that sudeep mention be taken care of in bigoyal's 1st case?

Anyways, the answer is C.
