(1) p = 1

(2) r = 1


Statement 1: \(p=1\). \(1\) raised to any power will yield \(1\). hence \(p^r=1\). Sufficient

Statement 2: nothing mentioned about \(p\). Insufficient

Option A

Straight A
anything to the power of 1 is 1 ( even 0)
so statement 1 is sufficient
statement 2 is insufficient because p can be anything . p can be 0,1,2,5,-1 ... etc the entire number line hence insufficient.
Answer should be A

Straight A.
1 when raised to the power of anything, which includes positive, negative, fractions and zero, results to a value of 1.
