Say that as f(n) = (N-1)! + N! + (N + 1)! + 2^N.(3^N+1)
f(1)=0
f(2)=9
f(3)=6
f(4)=2
f(5)=2
for every n>5; f(n)=
if n mod 4 = 0 than 2
if n mod 4 = 1 than 8
if n mod 4 = 2 than 0
if n mod 4 = 3 than 4

A insuff, N>2 does not mean anything
B insuff N=3K+1 does not mean anything (K = 0, N=1, f(n)=0, K=1, N=4, f(n)=2, K=2, N=7, f(n)=4 etc.)
together insuff
we do not know what K is, so f(n) can be any of the results written above.
