It's a C.

Statement 1: Give no additional information.. not sufficient.

Statement 2: x= 2 and -3.
Not sufficient.
Statement 1 and 2 together:

Sufficient. It. Gives a value of 6 when solved.

Statement 1 : y-1=x, y=x+1, xy=x(x+1)-- no solution
Statement 2: Solve the quadratic equation and we get x= 2, -3
If x=2, y=3 (With help from Statement 1), then xy =3x2= 6
If x=-3, y=-2 (With help from Statement 1), then xy =-3 x -2= 6.
