What is x - y?

(1) x^2 - y^2 = 0
This could be possible for value x=y=1 and x=1, y=-1
The value for the expression x-y is different for both the combinations(Insufficient)

(2) The average of x^2 and y^2 is equal to the product of x and y.
If the average of \(x^2 and y^2\) is equal to the the product of x,y
\(\frac{x^2 + y^2}{2} = xy => x^2 + y^2 = 2xy => x^2 + y^2 - 2xy = 0 => (x - y)^2 = 0\)

This is possible if and only if y = x. Hence, this statement alone is sufficient(Option B)
