(1) K^2/L^2 is an integer.
(2) K-L=L

If $$l\neq{0}$$ is $$\frac{18k}{l}=integer$$?

(1) $$\frac{k^2}{l^2}=integer$$. $$k=4$$ and $$l=2$$ - answer YES but $$k=\sqrt{6}$$ and $$l=\sqrt{2}$$ - answer NO. Not sufficient.

(2) $$k=2l$$ --> $$\frac{18k}{l}=\frac{18*2l}{l}=36=integer$$. Sufficient.

according to statement A K^2/L^2 is integer but that doesn't mean that K & L are integer; square of 1.732 is 3 which is an integer but 1.732 itself is not a integer. hence statement A - i nsufficient

statment B - k=2l sufficeint we get a integer from it
so B must be the answer.
