I am a bit puzzled. You indicate ParametricPlot[{Sin[t], Cos[t]}, {t, 0, 2*[Pi]}] does what you want. This would be a circle centered at the origin. But in your initial statement you add another condition x + y = 1. This would be a line. Did you mean this condition to be x^2 + y^2 = 1 instead of what you posted?

If the question is what other methods are available to plot a unit circle, then you could use ImplicitPlot or simply use the graphics primitive Circle.

Equation? This looks like an inequality which would be satisfied by all of the points in the uppper left quadrant except for the strip 0 <= y < 1.
