(1) 2 is not a factor of n
(2) 3 is not a factor of n

Statement 1:

Insufficient: if n=3, you get 8; if n=7, you get 48 (no remainder)

Statement 2:

Insufficient: if n=2, you get 3; if n=7, again you get 48.

Statement Combined: Sufficient. All values that are neither a factor of 2 or 3, will give us multiples of them in (n-1)*(n+1). This will always give us a multiple of 24. Therefore sufficient.
