My pick is A..

Between 4 and 1
2x is a of 9 thus x must be multiple of 9/2 x^2 must be a multiple 81/4 ..thus 4*X^2 is multiple of 81 thus 4 is an integer

In one we have term 6x/54 =(2x*3)/(6*9)=k*3/6=k/2 this may or may not be an integer depending upon the value of K.

yup. OA is A.

It caught me because x may not be an integer. This is the key.
