I disagree

1) 56 --> 7 * 8 --> 7 *2*2*2 n is an odd integer GREATER THAN 1.

So N can only be 7. If u try and multpily 7 by any of the other factors, it becomes even and thus cannot be N.

Suff.

2) 2n/14 --> 2*n/2*7 --> n/7 N could be 7, 21, 35 etc...

So could be prime or not

yep, got A.

From statement 1, prime factorization of 56 gives 2,2,2,7. Only 7 fits the bill as being odd and greater than 1. Sufficient

From statement 2, we just know that n can be any multiple of 7, and those odd values, i.e. 7, 21, could be prime or not. So not sufficient.
