My working:

Let p = 3

4(3) =12
Divisors of 12 = 1, 12, 2, 6, 3, 4
Even divisors = 12, 2, 6, 4

Try 5

4(5) = 20
Divisors = 1, 20, 2, 10, 4, 5
Even = 20, 2, 10, 4

I would select 4, choice C, but that is not the answer.

Anyone see my mistake?

The OA said 3, must be a mistake. :)

4 is the answer.
BTW, the OA in the 11th edition is indeed 4.

I would suggest not using the real numbers for such questions.

Factors will be 1,n,p,2,4 and 2p. Among these positive odd numbers are n,2,4 and 2p.

Hence answer is 4.
