I already solved it, need to see you guys' explanation.

Thanks

2) is sufficient, 'cause only in in digit 2 can the difference of any two distinct positive factors be odd.

is your question complete? statement 1 seems unclear...

if you mean:

1. n has exactly two positive factors (instead integers)
2. The difference of any two distinct positive factors of n is odd

agree with B.

Sorry Professor, you are correct, it should be 'factors' instead of 'integers'.

M8 - you said "'cause only in digit 2 can the difference of any two distinct positive factors be odd"

What about in the digit 6??
2 distinct positive factors are 2 and 3, and their difference is 1 as well??

No problems.

From the question stem we are told that the difference of any two distinct positive factors
6 has four distinct posiitve factors 1,2,3 and 6. so the diff of any factors of 6 won't be equal 1, except 3 and 2 of course.

Got it, I wasn't clear on that. Thanks for your explanation.
