Could there be an argument made for B here?

Statement 1 says "any refined number must be divisible by 22" but they don't say that a refined number IS any number divisible by 22. According to statement one it could be multiples of 66. Statement 2 is sufficient because it gives us the same info but also informs us what exactly a refined number is
