Statement 1 gives us the coordinate of point A but we need coordinate of any other 3 points(B,C and D) so that we may get length of a side or diagonal from which we can calculate the area of square easily so insufficient Statement 2 gives the coordinates of endpoints of diagonal BD using them we can find the diagonal length and thus the area of the square so sufficient
Correct Answer  B
+1 kudos if you like the solution

Urgent Help!!!
A) It's given A(0,4) , it means that distance from origin to point A is 4 and A is half the distance from B , So A =4 and B from origin will b 8 , So diagonal = 8
8 = a * root(2) a = 4*root(2)
and we an evaluate the area...isn't it ?????????????

Hi rocko911Let the origin be point o then the other two angles of right triangle ADO may be anything , which changes the value of side (hyp. of triangle) of square with angles so u cannot deduce the diagonal to be 8 .. for more visual clarity , refer below fig attached hope u understand

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. GMAT gives u enough info for deducing about given fig. in above ques it was clearly stated that fig is sq. , if not so then the fig may be rectangle. hope this answers your querry....

chetan2u , sir need your help here if suppose the point of intersection of diagonals AC and BD is P , so in a square DP = BP and that is BD/2 and BD=side *sqrt(2) so , if the origin is O can't we say OA=DP and hence evaluate side and area thanks in advance
