D

1) |j| = 1/j => j has to be +1

2) since 0 to the power 0 is undefined, only j = 1 satisfies j^j = 1

IMO A.

B: j*j =1 so j can be +1 or -1. Not suffice

Picked A at first, but now I see why B would work as well.

OA is D.

The solution said that 0^0 is a non-existent value, therefore, made S2 a sufficient statement. This is the part that I missed originally.
