I think its A.
1 is sufficient bcoz, in three consecutive numbers atleast one will be even (so multiple of 2) and atleast 1 will be multiple of 3. So it's sufficient.

(2) is sufficient too.

if k-1 is odd, then k is even, so (k-1)*k*(k+1) is divisible by 6.
if k-1 is even, then it already is divisible by 6.

Nope. Second Statement does not define any relationship between n and k!! Be careful.. While evaluating the second statement, forget everything that you know from first statement.

Picking number theory here.

A alone is sufficient.

B gives no information concerning n.

OA is A
