Hint:-Here, we go through by writing ${A^2} = A.A$ and ${B^2} = B.B$ then rearrange it.

We have to find ${A^2} + {B^2}$

Given, $AB = B$ and $BA = A$

$ \Rightarrow {A^2} = A.A = A\left( {BA} \right) = \left( {AB} \right)A = BA = A$

$ \Rightarrow {B^2} = B.B = B.\left( {AB} \right) = \left( {BA} \right)B = AB = B$

$ \Rightarrow {A^2} + {B^2} = A + B$

So, option ${\text{C}}$ is the correct answer.

Note:-Whenever we face such a type of question of matrix the key concept for solving the question is you have to proceed according to what is given in question, and try to rearrange the terms to get an answer.
