B

St1: K is a multiple of 2^6. So can't say that its 2^r. It may be (2^7) or may not be (3*2^6): INSUFF

St2: If K is not divisible by any odd integer then it is divisible only by 2 and numbers which are raised to the powers of 2. SUFF.

K is not divisible by 6,10,14 etc. Its divisible by only 2,4,8,16 because factors of these numbers are all even. So K can be represented in 2^r.

B

1) let K = 2^7 *5
It is divisible by 2^6 but k not = 2^r

2) K is not divisble by any odd number greater than 2

Hence the value of K has to be 2 and allpowers of 2

Hence B
