Nice explanation KanishkM.
Hi, chetan2u, having a nice day I hope. Please help me out here, I noticed it is not stated here that both x and y are distinct integers, would it be safe to assume that they are distinct or would an official question state this. Thanks.

IMO B

Statement A has multiple options - 1221, 1111, 2112.

Not sufficient

Statement B only had one unique possibility 4499

Thank You Kem12.

A very interesting question, would just add 2 cents on that.

You are correct at pointing that we should not assume anything, especially in Data sufficiency questions.

I would say, It depends on case 2 case scenario. Here to make the statements true, such unstated assumptions were made.
