A should be it...

From 1, k > 3n, adding n to both sides
k+n > 3n+n
k+n>4n

Taking sqrt, sqrt(k+n) > 2sqrt(n)
SUFF

From 2, n+k>3n, taking sqrt, sqrt(n+k) > sqrt(3n) which is INSUFF since
sqrt(3n) < sqrt(n+k) < 2*sqrt(n)

1)k>3n
2) n+k>3n

square both sides

n+k>4n.....ie k>3n

from one ...needless to say anything......suff

from two

k>2n we can never deduct that k>3n....insuff

thus A is my answer
