Its A
Stmtn 1 .
n(n+1) is not divisible by 3 . Means neither n nor n+1 is divisible by 3.
That definitely means n-1 is divisble by 3.
You take any number for n and n+1 that is not divisible by 3. You will find n-1 is divisible by 3.

Stmtn2
3n -3 >= k
3(n-1) <= 3a ---> n-1 <= 1 . Takes you no where.
