\((x-y)^2= x^2+y^2-2xy\)

St I
\(x^2+y^2=8\) =>\((x-y)^2= 8-2xy\) ----------Insufficient

St II
\((x+y)^2=4xy\) => \(x^2+y^2 + 2xy=4xy\) => \(x^2+y^2 =2xy\)
Therefore we have, \((x-y)^2= x^2+y^2-2xy\) =>\((x-y)^2= 2xy-2xy\) =0 ----------Sufficient

Hence Option B is correct.

==> If you modify the original condition and the question, from \((x-y)^2=x^2+y^2-2xy=x^2+y^2+2xy-4xy= (x+y)^2-4xy\), con 2) is sufficient.

Therefore, the answer is B.
Answer: B

A--Not suff
B-(x+y)^2 = 4xy
x^2 + y^2 +2xy =4xy
x^2 + y^2 - 2xy = 0
(x-y)^2 = 0
Suff.
hence B
